Click! From now on, you cannot use this site. No reason, no warning, no appeal.
You are simply denied the ability to do anything on this site -- challenge, argue, justify, apologise -- by some unknown (and unknowable) individual, with some level of privilege that allows them to exercise unconstrained, incontestable, utterly capricious, and totally without mandate, control over your ability to exist; as far as this site is concerned.
Could you, given those circumstances, retain your composure?
"good old buk" has never left this site -- for even one day -- since he first arrived here.
But, the frustrations of both watching, and suffering at the hands of, those unaccountable few, that exercise total, capricious and invisible control over your interactions here -- a place where I have contributed an average of 5 posts a day, everyday, for 11 years -- tends to peak, when all say is stolen from you.
If you truly want the "old buk" back. Stand up and be counted. Contest the status quo. Read between the lines and DO SOMETHING about the circumstances that frustrate the "old buk" to the point where reason and politeness become secondary ...

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
