I got ban hammered by Drew. What gives?

What is the significance of this phrase?  I'm tired of wandering about it and thought I would ask.
It's easier to read brewing books and get information from the forum than to sacrifice virgins to appease the brewing gods when bad beer happens!

There was an accidental banning of a group. I can't remember the specifics.

The term “banhammer” refers to the power of moderators and system administrators to effectively ban users from a digital space. It began in Internet chat rooms and progressed to use in online gaming platforms.

The above was from a few internet sites defining the term.

Dfew was trying to ban a bot, but he dickchimped it and banned a whole range of IP addresses, affecting a lot of people on the forum.  Please note that it wasn't me!  😁

I'd like to have the ability to change the little phrase next to my profile pic.  Indeed, the existing one has grown stale.

I jumped on one day and got the message YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE THIS FORUM (or something) and I had to think back about what I had posted recently... was I posting under the influence and call Denny a Dillweed or something?  :D

A day without beer is like... just kidding, I have no idea.

Unfortunately the titles are tied to the number of posts you have. I am willing to entertain ideas for alternate titles. All bribes are welcome.
