I - personaly - DON'T have anything to blame hicookie. As for me, he's a GOOD guy but a bit imature if you ask me when he's doing things like that. When I have to say something, I ALWAYS say it in PUBLIC and not in PMs/e-mails.... That's the way I act from the begining. I can't understand why you guys are talking for "bannings"....What did he did?...You can't ban his imatureness - he'll grow up a bit and next time he'll think before he reacts.... ;) Finaly, I like hicoockie as a crazy guy but I'll tell him when he's doing something wrong....IF he's not arrogant (which he isn't), he'll understand.... ;) :) In General, it's BETTER when you have to say something to someone, to say it "face to face" instead of PMs/e-mails and "under the seen"... IF he's "man" enough, he'll understand, if he's still a "boy" he'll think about it.... ;)

Using a public forum is like announcing through the PA system during a soccer game. If you feel that's "face to face", then OK. I just say... keep it civil. Just saying this BEFORE this thing turns into flaming.:)
