That's a very funny question! You got suspended because of your entire online MO -- the passive aggressive snipes at people, stirring shit up and then acting like you don't see people responding, and overall, maintaining your stellar track record of being the most intelligent and subtle troll we've ever had here at Rigorous Intuition to date (with the possible exception of Jeff Wells, of course -- jury is still out on that one).
A great way to reverse that trend would be to treat the people in this thread who are asking you questions like normal human beings, who are just as smart as you, don't have "problematic" or "questionable" motivations, and would earnestly like answers from you! Give it a shot! Could be exciting.

I am shocked—shocked I say!—to come back and find arguing going on here!
Round up the usual suspects.
This is perhaps one of those threads that needed to happen. I'll try to make this brief.
- Because the thread was conceived as a provocation, reactionary retorts will stand, but with a request/warning to SLAD to end the old "kill yourself" controversy; with sophistry detected on both sides, JackRiddler has explained himself sufficiently. (Also see: ["kill yourselves" +diogenes])
- Jack's thesis here is, in my opinion, essentially correct, but Jack will get a one-week suspension for directing profanity at another member.
- AmericanDream is suspended for one year. This forced sabbatical is not lightly given, nor is it by any means solely a result of the arguments given by Jack and others here. For all the reasons cited in this thread, and by so many other members over many years now, AD's banishment has been on the table since long before I became a moderater. This fact was volunteered to me in my "orientation" so it is not just the wish or view of a few noisy, partisan posters, but rather a recurring, strongly expressed theme among a broad range of longtime members and moderators, and the natural consequence of AD's habitual trollery.
- Thread locked.

An Open Letter to Jeff Wells
"Rigorous Intuition", the board which you sponsor, has been going downhill for some years now. One important and integral factor is the inconsistent moderation, which has been quite a problem at times. This is an ongoing issue in the time since you left, as you once played a much more active role in cultivating a healthy culture within the community.
Never has that been more apparent than now, under the defacto rule of the unaccountable Elvis Administration, which seems intent on running the board as the personal plaything of a small group of problematic posters. It would be no exaggeration to describe them as an ideologically aligned group of serial abusers.
Ultimately this is something that must be figured out in accordance with your own inner presence. I urge you to investigate thoroughly and reflect deeply on what Rigorous Intuition is in the process of becoming. I then urge you to act according to the voice of your deepest and truest conscience.

Without making too much drama or rancor about it, I cannot continue to be active here as long as this is the state of affairs. I fully support the Elvis ruling, but for whatever reason it was applied to me only (for one week) and not at all to AD (for one year, deserved in my opinion.)

I'm resuming my role as moderator, thanks for all the supportive comments. I quit only because I incorrectly assumed that Jeff had overruled me and reversed AD's suspension, but that turned out not to be what happened. It was probably the result of a software glitch.
There's a tradition at hangings (maybe only in the movies) that if the rope breaks, you must let the condemned man go free. It's New Year's Day so I'm not doing any work today anyway.
Happy New Year
