Whatever disagreements are going on, it is not acceptable to just disable your account at will.
Really, I'm not nearly so stupid as to try to ban BrowserUk. I woke up this morning and the first thing I saw on PerlMonks was a private message from Buk asking if I had banned him. It was only later that I saw for the first time BrowserUk's rant. It is a holiday here and I was dead asleep for the entire duration of the rant and supposed intrigue that followed, not waking until over an hour after the accusation was /msg'd to me.
