Well, to get back on topic...I think that there is a lot of healthy interest in having Tee back.
Is there any way that he could be un-banned and put on some kind of probation, regarding his potential nastiness toward other members? Or at least have the opportunity to explain himself? As in, why DanaStarr had the same IP?
She was an HF Pro member and I find it somewhat hard to believe that Tee would have coughed up ten more dollars just to make a troll account masquerading as a woman. Perhaps Bee is right.
Rules are rules, but everyone deserves a second chance. Especially a guy who did so much to help people and did so much to liven up the site (not to mention all the traffic he singlehandedly generated). Tee could be reliably counted on to offer honest, unflinching, and genuine advice to people. What some saw as rudeness, I saw as honesty, the same as I see it from JSKidder or JJINZ or any other acid-tongued members.
I truly believe that the site is better off WITH Tee and his wealth of knowledge. Sure, he's provocative, and he broke a rule, but there are a lot of members out there who abide by the rules yet only contribute 1% of what he did (I'll freely count myself among them).
i really think begret's (and your and mine) skepticism of Tee's true "multiple account maliciousness" is very logical. imo, *Bee* is one of the most well-liked and intelligent members on here- maybe the mods should listen to her before assuming too much.
for me, the difference between Tee and other confrontational members is tee would (almost) always offer a suggestion or help when he disagreed with you. i can think of many members who are much more respected but also much less helpful with the same dose of rudeness.
i also, while following all rules, have not contributed much to this site so far except for a few recommendations and outfits here and there. nobody would care if i was banned, where tee's banning generated a 4-page ideological debate. the fundamental difference between this and someone like Mario is all people offered in support of Fishetti was his humor; the main thesis of Tee's defense is honesty, helpfulness and knowledge.
finally, although i have nothing against lorna or any of the others who are glad tee's gone, i notice you even negged ross's post here. all it offers (as well as mine, which you will also likely neg) is a logical, both-sides taken into consideration defense.
