I know this place isn't as active as it once was (understatement am i rite?), but to dispel any possible rumors I just want to state some facts.
I banned Poe.
I did so because he is/was an ***hole. And a troll. And he was running people off - good, long-time, productive members. And people felt the need to tell me about it off-Nightly even though I'm not even the most active admin right now.
Several years ago he asked to be able to post on Nightly again after his former usernames had been banned. We (the Admin team at the time) agreed as long as he registered with a new name, dropped his old habits of being a disagreeable troll, and play by the rules. He couldn't do that in the long-term.
So he's gone. Debate in peace.
If anyone wants to take up the mantle of Nightly's Token Staunch Conservative, be my guest. Just don't be an ***hole about it.
