I have been watching closely the events unfolding on Meta this past year or so which include the MK issue and more recently the deleting/locking of contest/take home questions. Now just a few minutes ago I logged into Bill D. account and it says that it has been temporarily suspended to allow it to "cool down". What does this mean? Furthermore I take it that some have considered his behaviour to be out of line, but does this mean we have to hit such an important contributor to our site with a 1 year suspension period?
Even though he changed his username to "Gone" and went into self - imposed exile just earlier today before the suspension I could see him on chat; in fact he told me of a suspension that he and another user were apparently hit with.
