You probably didn't read very carefully as TonyClifton DID explain who unbanned him. So yes, your accusations are just fun conspiracy theories. Have more? It's fun!

He said he wrote to EB. Unless my english fails me he did not say it was EB or who it was to undo the ban.

Instead of reading your irrelevant post why don't you read TonyClifton's explanation? Oh, a giving me red blobs is a waste of time, better spend it on developing a newer, more entertaining conspiracy theory

Which is logical and already explained by Ace1 as he won't know WHO exactly unbanned him, but he explained what he did to get unbanned.

I wrote to The Local. I received a message back today saying my ban had been lifted. I can't confirm who lifted the ban, I would assume it was The Local though.

So he didn't explain who unbanned him? Just that he appealed his unbanning?

Thanks for that

Well there have been four of us, two of the others are very rarely active , one has a life so may not have logged on today, so only one has deigned to comment.

I'm not pointing any fingers, but I do feel that we're (all) owed an explanation.

We all have lives. I for one am multitasking!

With you on the explanation.

A new mod team certainly will be a great boost for EF. Especially after the behavior of a mod or two lately.

People posting content, that is what matters for a forum, not the few of you thinking I'm a God - mod

The current toxic atmosphere was created by few of the mods unfortunately.
Do you know the expression "Better the devil you know"?

Re: Mod coup

mass changes in EF moderation staff is like an ice age. It will happen occasionally.

Also do remember it's a thankless task that you do for free, if you're mad enough to do it. It is a lot of work and you will never please all of the people all of the time.

I would ask for normal user rights with OTB&C and enjoy the retirement.
