It was on IRC.

I sent him a nicely worded email.  The tracker privs were set back
to the normal level which most participants have (can comment,
submit patches, etc. but not close or reprioritize).  That would have
allowed him to contribute and participate.  If that had worked out,
it would have been easy to add back close/reprioritize capabilities
No one needed to be hurt.  

Unfortunately, he responded with drama and another dev shut-off
his tracker access entirely.
