ok, let's get things straight:
1. I did remove the rude userbox  21:13, 4 February 2006

2. Then you put it back: 19:50, 5 February 2006

3. And left the note on my page:  20:01, 5 February 2006

4: I proceeded to remove it again... 20:53, 5 February 2006

5. ...explaining VERY politely my reasons on his talk page 20:59, 5
February 2006

6. Then he puts it back: 03:45, 6 February 2006
(and he never replied me back)

(....) fast forward

7.  He puts a less rude version 15:11, 6 February 2006 :
and even though he namecalls me a jerk

8. He apologizes later 15:17, 6 February 2006

I'm sorry if I came as rude, and I didn't mean to editwar. I was just
being firm in that such namecalling was uncalled for.

For the record I also commented what I was doing on WP:AN/I:
which by he way, was inmediately attacked by several new accounts.
Well, that's what happened.
