So when exactly does Reub get unbanned?  It seems a little quiet around here without his "unnecessarily acerbic" comments.

I hope he comes back too.  Despite the cave man tone he's contributed a lot.

You might recall he's been through a lot recently too:  losing his home in Hurricane Sandy, then his father not too long ago.  The tone of his posts changed after that event, so I figured he deserves a bit extra latitude.

I really appreciate his contributions here, though I frequently disagree with him. But sometimes his point gets lost in the tone of his comments which can be unnecessarily acerbic.

You have your moments. But I don't ever recall you suggesting that the son of another member of the forum was contemplating murder.

Wow, what did I miss?  All the good bad stuff happens when I'm away.  :'(
