I understand your point of view, but Eric's reason for banning Kelley was
that she changed John's post. She changed it back to the original after HE
changed *her* post. For whatever the reason, if the transgression was
"changing someone's post", then John did it.

Quoted material is quoted material -- I don't consider that John "wrote"
the word "f***". He didn't. He took a certain liberty in quoting her text.
But wait -- that is the transgression that Eric is penalizing Kelley for.

I think I'm going to let this go, but I do understand your point, John's
point and actions, and Kelley's. I just think that banning her is unjust,
because it appears she is being banned for something that John did. I'm
done, though, with this lovely topic. ;)
