Ok, i'm also banned on Doom9

Here a PM from Doom9 to me why i got striked two more times, to finally 
get rid of me there. Maybe not nice of me to post that to a public ML, 
but they arent nice with us either, so i stand behind doing it.

Please note the part where he is claiming i am calling him a nazi, just 
because i was using an old German saying about people turning into 
idiots when they wear a uniform. I guess he even didnt understand what i 
wanted to tell him with that ;-) ..... but nazi age is soooooo long time 
ago, i really wonder how he could manage to make this assumption ... 
maybe Doom9 mods have to wear uniforms today :O ??

All in all, time for me to finally leave this place, like robux4 has 
decided to do already.

I'm not sure you can still read PMs, so here's a copy

    Stop talking rubbish Doom9. Your mods do whatever they like to do,
    and you are even backing them up. In this case here, all i did was
    asking :

    ' .... isnt this reply OT here ? From my understanding, this user
    was explicitly asking about multiple streams in matroska container,
    not in MP4 ?'

Your first sentence is a rule 4 and a rule 16.. I can pick whichever I 
like better. I told everyone to stop this subject and you didn't. I 
won't even comment on the insult.

It is off topic indeed, and I've asked bond to not inject mp4 where it 
doesn't belong. That is not unlike what you and your Matroska buddies 
have been asked to, but whereas there's no data yet on if the mp4 
injecting will go on, the mkv injecting has been going on for a long 
while (though I have to admit that last time it escalated, and that's 
been a while back now, things have been pretty normal). But you cannot 
compare 1 occurrence with 50 ocurrences of a certain action pattern.

    Or can you report about a single case where one of your mods was
    striked for misbehaviour, or even got just a warning from your side ?

Oh but they do have gotten stiff warnings many times. But as the coach 
of a football team tries to not wash dirty laundry in the public, 
neither will I. I doubt that in your professional life, your boss will 
give you a verbal butt kicking in front of clients.. he'll do that 
privately as well and the client is never the wiser.

    In Germany we have a saying, 'hand a uniform to a normal guy, and he
    will turn into an idiot in not time ..

Uhoh, now you shot yourself in the foot big time. I doubt you knew 
what's coming next but you should be smarter than to start with nazi 
insinuations. As it so happens, I'm in uniform a couple of weeks a year 
as well. Not because I chose to, but because the law says I have to. 
Just like most of the regular soldiers in my unit, I take absolutely no 
pleasure in wearing the uniform, and we're all looking forward to the 
day when we'll be discharged
But thanks for calling me a nazi and good riddance.

P.S. I checked your strike history, and guess what.. there's plenty of 
times where you could've opposed a strike successfully had you 
approached me directly and privately as the rules say you should. But 
instead you chose a snappy comeback. Your last suspension was completely 
avoidable, as was this one. Unfortunately for you, two suspensions mean 
a permanent ban. I take no pleasure in doing that, in fact, except for 
whenever you clash with the authorities here, I like having you around 
but you brought this upon yourself.
