There's been a level of civility around here that gets
violated from time to time.  Banning is an
overreaction, but whether or not he realizes it, he's
effectively banning himself.  The only reason I might
read one of his posts now is for entertainment
purposes, even though I'm sure he has something useful
to say somewhere.  Its not worth my time to sort
through the insults and profanity to come up with a
small nugget of "that might be useful".  I'm sure I'm
not alone in this regard.

Timecop, please try to remember that developers and
other contributors are people too. 

Happy GIMPing, and may this thread die a timely death.
