of stated policy and decisions--Jimbo had banned Helga for three months. It may
be that your reference to a two-month ban that "should have expired" is part

Ed informed me before you wrote this that he had made a simple error.
He misread "three months" as "two months" in the relevant email and
he was just doing an administrative task that had been previously ignored.
He didn't mean to "change the rules unilaterally".
