    Why did _fred_ got banned from here? I heard he was having trouble with the H-C Mods but I really don't know what happened here. I hope no one got screwed or anything because he seems like a solid guy to trade with.

    From my experience, overall bad attitude.

    I think it was his constant trawling of the Gear FS section, it's where his last neg rep was from (more or less how he went about doing it). Plus, like John said, he did have a VERY shit attitude.

    That seems to be the cause but I would like to read an official story of what actually happened.

    I think this might be something that would be better to discuss in a PM with a mod.

    My only concern is if he was involved in a trade that went wrong or something. If that's the case, we all have to know about it.

    This would be the first time a member was outright banned, without a complaint thread or posted warning, that I've seen in my time here. I really doubt that's the case. I think it has more to do with him using the forums as a "black market" (or at least a grey market) for importing amps, and getting around taxes, dealers, etc.



    On that note, I'm out of here before I awaken the almighty Ban Hammer.

    In the future - PM a mod. What the mods do and don't do regarding members isn't up for public discussion.
