I am glad to see him gone. I see this as a DISCUSSION forum, not a place to dump on.
Unless a person is willing to discuss subjects on this forum, I don't believe that person belongs here. Just to come and dump, then leave without following up later is not what a discussion forum is all about.
While that is mostly true, I certainly wouldn't complain if people like Koos Jansen, SRSRocco, etc. stopped by and dropped links to their original material. If the material is quality (enough to generate some discussion about it), it's OK by me. Links to sites selling stuff obviously gets stricter scrutiny.
