I have no problem going public if that is what you wish. I will copy and paste the PM I just finished sending and then expand a little but first:
You were not banned for your actions yesterday when you said "Hi" and "What?". You have been banned for your cumulative actions over the past X months and the building disruption you are causing on the site.
Well, you can play innocent if you want and I don’t really have to justify myself because you already clicked OK on the reason for the ban while you were in the chat but…
1) Show me you contribution to the site.
2) (assuming you can do that) Why shouldn’t I ask you how to prove that you haven’t been disruptive since there is no quantitative evidence that you are productive anywhere on the site.
The main reason that you have been banned is because you are disruptive. You many not disrupt every conversation but I would wager that a high percentage of chats are thrown off because of your arrival and actions there. I have received multiple emails from multiple people saying thins and there are many that will just leave or stop talking once you arrive. When it starts to affect people in those kind of ways I *must* take some sort of action. There are many that would just rather see you completely banned from the site since all you do (did) was come in with your end of the world crap. That annoyed a lot of people just because it was so stupid. But I let that go, I will not let this go.
If you want to ask for permissions back for the chat in a month or so, you are going to have to prove that you want to be a constructive part of the site.
OK, you were ONLY
banned from the chat. If you were a constructive member of what this Citadel stands for that shouldn't bother you at all since you still have access to EVERYTHING else. If a couple people had their way you would be banned completely from the site. Why? you ask. Because you contribute nothing constructive while bothering pretty much everybody with your end of the world crap and meaningless conversation railroading nonsense chat that always seems to come up when you are in the chatroom. The occassional disruptions by your 'friends' does nothing to help your case either.
Also, don't think that it is just a single person with some sort of vendetta against you. Over the months I have gotten probably a half dozen PMs and the Admins have spent WAY too much time on the topic of what to do with you. This is also a disruption that I could do without. So the least of all evils is to ban you from the chat. It saves those
