I'd like it if you continued to discuss this issue. The moderators and I have discussed this issue some in private; I'll summarize what I had to say to them here.
As far as I am concerned, simply being stubbornly wrong is not a bannable offense. Being stubbornly wrong doesn't mean you're trolling. It can just mean you're wrong. Trolling - which is, as far as I am concerned here, means trying to get other people to lose their tempers - is against the rules.
If this matter comes to a ban, and SWST decides to appeal the ban, I will review SWST's posting history to see whether or not SWST deserved to be banned. Until then, it's up to the moderators to handle the case and make those judgments. EDIT: Addendum: I suppose I may chew people out for not following the rules if I happen to stumble across what I view as a clear violation of rules.
In closing, I'd like to quote myself from when I started these forums, to remind everybody of what our board rules are all about:
The rules wrote:In truth, this board has one rule:
All discourse is to be reasonable, polite, and informative.
