Did you get suspended again, or are you just BSing about actually being suspended for 3 months?

You might want to delete some posts so it actually shows no activity for 3 months....

It was a joke. Original suspension was 3 months, would have ended around today.

Whether or not you would like to characterise your post as a "joke", and I would actually judge it more to be in the nature of a "troll", it certainly does seem to break both the spirit and the letter of IBobi's post which included the words:
Specifically, it's vital that the moderator team is able to do their difficult, volunteer work free of having to worry that they will be attacked in any way for doing their best to apply the rules of the site in a fair and even-handed manner. The rules I'm referring to are rules against:

Ignoring or arguing with warning posts a moderator or administrator makes in a thread. If you think the warning is unjust please email them or another moderator to discuss it.

Attacking or harassing any moderator or administrator on the forum or via email.

Continued posting in a manner that antagonizes other members.
And, to be fair, most of the "official" posting in this thread is from a new mod and a new admin.

So, although you may be of a mind to perpetuate old arguments, I'm asking you here to cut it out NOW and for good, please.

Here's a post from one of the "new" Administrators. If anyone has issues with the way things are being handled by the mod team, I think the best thing to remember is that every member of the mod team has a boss. If you don't like something a mod is doing or you think they are singling you out unfairly, contact their boss, an Admin. If you think an Admin is doing something wrong, contact IBobi or another member of IB who has an account here. Everyone has a boss. The most effective way to handle it is privately though. Trying to publicly humiliate a mod, admin, or one of the IB reps here in a thread is probably going to have the opposite effect of what you're looking for.

This thread is getting a little tense and it doesn't seem to be accomplishing much, so I'm going to close it at this point.
