LuciusVorenus was banned permanently from the site because he repeatedly violated the rules. He was confronted about that repeatedly and promised not to be a problem anymore. But he continued all the same. Many efforts went into trying to have him stop, but, while he believes himself innocent always, his presence here required moderators to police his actions OVER FREQUENTLY. One of his most recent threads, which I closed, was of a problematic nature that he's exhibited here before and about which he has been severely taken to task. Since it happened again, after previously promising his best behavior, it was clear that we would have more of the same to expect from him in the future, and that he was constitutionally unable to adapt himself enough to stay at Basenotes.
He's been here a long time. He's been given every opportunity to change. He's been the recipient of extreme patience and efforts. Many members here have tried to encourage his positive social qualities. None of this worked. His behavior here is not welcome.
Now that I've made this explanation I don't want this thread to become a public referendum--for lack of a better term--on him or on his time here, or on thoughts members have on him. One of it's former members is not the subject for public discussion on a fragrance devoted Web site.
I've made this announcement to serve the ends TheAttorney believes, wisely, are important to a community. So this is so members understand.
Again, and as always, members concerned about actions I make and discuss are encouraged to write me by PM. I read and consider all thoughts in those messages.
Thank you all,
