There was a strong difference of opinion between Steve and Juan over a post that Steve considered to contain a death threat (though not directed at him) which caused Steve to delete the post and to ban Juan,
In the interest of full disclosure, the offense was taken over an FBI report, not a death threat. The FBI report clearly laid out that a Bernie supporter had it in for and made death threats to conservative politicians prior to shooting up a softball game. THAT is what I was banned for, having the audacity to speak the factual truth.
I respect Steve keeping up the place on his own, but he seriously missed that one. And I posted that FBI report on the heels of posting known archeology showing fossilized tropical plants on a Canadian island inside of the Arctic Circle, and he expressed dismay over that as well, so I'm comfortable with my assessment of the situation.
