when you're responsible for cleaning the mess you may well behave like
"a fascist group" without knowing it. trolling, on theother hand, is
more fun.
if it takes several months to set up a new list or decide where this
ban may be discussed (if at all), why not wait? it'll save meta
bandwidth, and allow ar admins back in full gear - no scary trolls
around. no questions need answers if they were a troll's. they must be
right if meta has banned me, or so think they.
