Stop speculating, you obviously weren't around when this was all going on - but I was. He got banned because enough people were sick and tired of him ruining these forums. We asked (Michael) repeatedly to ban him, until he finally did. I am not aware of ANY other Phoronix visitor whom has a thread DEDICATED to getting themselves banned;
and again, search the forums for his MANY MANY retarded posts. See how many times he derails thread after thread, just being a childish twat.
anyway, enough of this crap. Hopefully, your next comment in this thread (if any) will be about Digia buying QT - if not (?), maybe it would be a good idea to find something else to do - as some of us are more interested in the QT sale, then we are in discussing things that hold ZERO relevance. ie: don't make your next post about Q - that is just you continuing to 'derail' this thread.
make sense? thanks
