Thanks for posting this.
Now that I thought about it, I do remember going through a thread in which Avataro posted (I forget which one) and saw that he was marked as "Banned" on his profile. I was concerned when I saw that.
It helps to know why (without knowing every nitty-gritty detail).
It's a shame that it takes a ban to force you to cool down over stuff... But that's how humans can be, I guess. Human nature is sometimes a hard thing to get over.
Glad to hear it got reduced. As long as he understands the reasons of the ban and no longer acts in that manner, we'd love to have him back.
