Following the BAUT BANNED posters log (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?t=30979), I acknowledged the fact that mugaliens was banned as a sock puppet of genebujold, banned earlier (http://www.bautforum.com/showpost.php?p=613167&postcount=40). Today, I ran across a post by mugaliens and found her/him listed as Junior member. The post announcing the ban has disappeared from the banned posters log.

Was the banning an error? If yes, I think a short announcement would have been in order. People on the board might meet someone with a banning history with a bit of reserve (especially if it involved decorum violations and sock puppetry), so an explanation that it was not in fact his/her fault would be nice.

Or has genebujold been allowed back in a new incarnation? I think that would also merit an announcement.

A fair point. mugaliens was banned because the posting style and IP address were very close to that of genebujold's. However, mugaliens has denied being a new incarnation of genebujold, so he's been unbanned. But we are continuing to monitor the situation.
