That is, of course, the decision of the moderators - but I happen to 
agree with both Christian and Ethan.  Banning for the simple reason of a 
dissenting opinion is censorship, pure and simple.  While Bart may have 
been prolific in his arguments, he never spoke in a toxic or 
condescending manner, or broke any of the rules of conduct.  I cannot 
say the same for several who engaged with him.
