True to form, mods seem to be deleting any posts commenting on his disappearance. This is in keeping with the HotCopper Omertà (selectively applied), so we’ll probably never know why he was banned. (Evidence suggests that on HotCopper freedom of speech is a prerogative of redneck males only – see here. Mods would probably all quit if HotCopper introduced a more open moderation policy.)
Younglogga was always polite, made fact-filled posts and would have been considered a treasured asset of any healthy discussion board. His posts were very rarely moderated, except when the mods took sides with the trolls who make incessant complaints that some people post about real science instead of anti-science on the science and medicine forum.
Fare thee well, Younglogga. You brought clarity and science if briefly to brighten the gloominess of that arid block of cyberspace.
This old Irish blessing is for you, though we’ve never met. (I’m not religious but I’ve always liked it.)
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
