So, apparently having the opinion that John Sickels isn't very good at his job and commenting on such is enough to get one permanently booted without explanation or anything.
It is not a smart business model, in my opinion.
that site is a complete joke. disqus allows/allowed you to upvote users comments. i had a very high "liked post" rate but GASP expressed my opinion which wasn't 100% bonafide Grade-A positive with rainbows and unicorns prancing and got banned as well. if you have an opinion, you will be banned. garbage site, garbage owner. i'm gonna go troll for real over there one day just to piss them off.
