We know there are going to be a lot of questions about the specifics of why dfwabel was banned. He not only threatened a member of the boards, he also threatened a person in that member's family. That type of behavior cannot and will not be tolerated.

I get disagreements (not threats, obviously), but how unhinged do you have to be to not only drag in someone's family members into your dispute, but threaten them as well?

This is basically what I was wondering as to what I missed. I’m assuming this was in DM but still very out of left field for him.

It's out of left field for anyone, really. I hope whoever was threatened is okay. 

 

Threatened. Over a discussion on a sports logo site. Internet really attracts all kinds.

I can't argue with that...

I'm surprised...I never saw that side of him.  Too bad; he brought some interesting stuff to the boards.

Don't wish/threaten death on family members, it's just a message board, stay in bounds.

The hell?  Dude was one of the best contributors to the forum, and one of my top 5 favorite members.  He knew every detail of every contract of every team and every city.  Seems extremely out of character.  In the interest of transparency, can we see what constitutes a "threat"?

Probably not, in the name of protecting the innocent party.

He threatened a member of someone's family. As IceCap pointed out, we're not going to out a "civilian" just to satisfy curiosity. We can't relay the threat without giving away the identities of the people he threatened. He called them out by name.

Just sayin', I was suspended for (among other reasons) "belligerence toward the moderating team" even though I had literally zero interactions with said team, so I don't think it's unreasonable to wonder what really happened.

If the affected person wishes to come forward then they can.

It's not unreasonable to ask, but in this particular case, we can't tell you. Any chance you can respect that this one time?
