    Grimby's profile can no longer be found, indicating that he has been banned. I know MS won't discuss individual users bans, but given that this is the head admin, I think we deserve some kind of explanation as to where Grimby is and what happened, etc. Also, what's the policy for when the head admin gets banned?

    Thanks.

    I second that.

    I do hope it's nothing serious.

    Maybe he got banned for exceeding the VIP limit of two posts for the day.

    It's nothing to be concerned about. The ban was self-imposed, and he'll be back in 48 hours. Like you said, we can't discuss bans so that's all that can really be said about that.

    The ban is self-imposed, but unfortunately, that's all I can say on the matter.

    Policy when the head admin is unavailable is for the two remaining admins to be jointly in charge, running things by committee. If anyone has any issues that require an admin, please feel free to send them to LAJ or myself and we'll be glad to help :)

    Yeah, there's nothing to see here. Please, disperse.

    Wouldn't this be more appropriate?

    Would this be an inappropriate time to mention that I dislike nuts in my brownies?

    So, I'm sitting inside the Staples Center waiting for the Laker game to start, and as I'm checking my Facebook, I noticed Master_Jacen's status update on this, I said out loud to myself "WTF has Grimby done?!"......................the person sitting 2 rows in front of me gave me an odd look.

    :p

    Interesting development...

    If the self imposed ban is due to other things Grimby needs to get done this weekend, then that's very silly..............just don't log in! :p If it's for some other reason, then it's not so silly.

    Tunick, can you think of even one reason that would make the head admin banning himself not silly?

    Of course I can. We'll find out, I suppose when Grimby gets back, since the MS can't discuss bans (a policy I've never been a fan of).

    Tunick, that's goofy... if he had stuff to do - just do the stuff and stay offline... do you seriously think banning yourself in order to get stuff done, is anything other than completely insane and / or ridiculous?

    Oh wait... I just reread your post, and you agree with me... lol. :p

    So I guess we're in agreement... banning yourself is indeed ridiculous and / or insane.

    Yes, we will find out his own take on the ban that he imposed on himself, which sounds like an entirely fair and logical thing.

    I remember a few years ago seeing members ask to be banned for a specified amount of time for one reason or another and were told that that this was not done or was no longer done. If that is the policy then how can it apply to regular users but not to the MS?

    He would be a better coach for them than McDaniel's.
