Good to see that thing closed. I just stumbled out of bed to a concerned PM from Tricky suggesting the same.
I have soft deleted the two offending posts in an effort to further clean up the thread.
this is ridiculous
EDIT, and here is a copy of my recent conversation with Wesp.

I overlooked this PM so I was quite surprised that I got banned. As Buck thought this ban was unfair I'm here again but just wanted to know if calling someone a liar even if one can provide proof is still called flaming? So that I can be more careful next time[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=me]Well, it was just a warning
As you know, that thread is now locked, because of the high feelings, and in that particular context, it contributed to the overall tensions.
The thread is now locked, it can't be a place for a quarrel. You have to understand, Game Banshee has been drawn into this situation unwittingly and we can't publicly take sides.
[QUOTE=Wesp]Okay, but still I think my last deleted post was neutral enough and just showed how anyone could check the truth. Such as it is now Tessera's words are the last and that is not right...[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=me]I appreciate your concerns. However, I deleted those posts that were a continuation of the previous flame war. Posts that had been added after repeated
warnings from Fable and myself.
As I have said, this cannot continue. The purpose of the News Forum is strictly as a venue for news on RPGs, it is not a battleground. Moreover, Game Banshee's Purpose is not to serve as a platform for disputes of ownership and we must remain neutral in this matter.
Having checked out the links posted by Buck in his clarification thread, I'm also inclined to think Tessera is at the root of the problem here. However, the continued persistence of people like Wesp and Oceanside, after being warned, and after consulations with Buck is certainly becoming tedious. I honestly appreciate their concerns, but they need to settle down until the matter has been further investigated. They also just don't appear to understand that GB is not a platform upon which they can vent their war.
