Sandgrounder permanently banned?

Wtf?

By an invisible mod, too, apparently.

Mirfield is now a "guest"; Sandgrounder permanently banned?

See this thread/page.

This is quite a shock to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the contributions of both of these members. I never found Sandgrounder to be guilty of harassing any member in any way, and I thought Mirfield was a top-notch contributor and fair moderator. I am very sad to learn of their "departures."

While I understand that we as members are not entitled to any information/explanation, might there be any available?

(I seriously hope I don't get banned for inquiring.)

Very sad day for EF, IMO.

Re: Mirfield is now a "guest"; Sandgrounder permanently banned?

I've been trying to figure the same thing out myself.

If mirfield was banned, you can usually still go to the profile to see why........ but the last post was today around 11am or 12pm from what I can figure out, so I have no idea what is going on.

Mirfield !!!! Where art though ?

Mirfield was indeed a fair guy, sad to see him go. Sandgrounder doesn't seem to be banned though?

Either way...

Seems a bit strange looking at Sandgrounder's posts from today. Nothing stands out just yet... Also the person banning her isn't named hmmm

That means he self deleted.... Could it be that he banned Sandgrounder and then self destructed?

Re: Mirfield is now a "guest"; Sandgrounder permanently banned?

Update: Sandgrounder appears to be un-banned now and has had her forum legend status restored.

But Mirfield is still a guest.

I dont think so. We are tied to EF for life.

Re: Sandgrounder permanently banned?

Could mimi1981 still be in possession of the magic secret to delete someone else?

Perhaps she used it on Mirfield.

Accoring to the forum homepage there are still "over 68,000 English-speaking members" so I think we'll be fine.
