Hi all -
I took the thread down.
To my knowledge, there aren't many threads that have been removed from the AHA forum before. Those who saw how baseless and harassing some of the comments were will no doubt agree that it had no place here.
To quell anyone's curiosity - a thread was started about revealing personal information without the consent of the individual. The person who began the thread was an active member here and will be missed. He was not banned. According to his posts, he voluntarily suspended his account.
The individual who WAS banned joined this forum simply as a means to make baseless claims against the aforementioned member. His one and only post went so far as to reveal this person's home address, what model & color car he drives, as well as information about his family - along with several derogatory remarks. The post was quickly removed by the admins. After he was banned, he then called the AHA office to make further derogatory remarks about this individual.
I made the decision to pull the entire thread. I hope that I will not have to do that again, and I hope this clears up the curiosity.
This forum is a place for learning and sharing information about great beer, and the hobby we all love. The homebrewing community is renowned for our sense of camaraderie. Let's all do our best to keep it that way.
