Sorry to hear about your ban, galactus.
I can't believe that they found it so easy to process a deletion request without doing due diligence... I actually would rather there be no deletions, or that any deletion must be up to the user (there is the risk of hacks, but that is more due diligence on the user's part).
There isn't any way to get it all back?
On the topic of bans, I've been banned at least six times on GaiaOnline.
The first was undeserved (they thought I was a bot despite my impoverished avatar there), but I totally deserved the few others. Mostly for trolling.
I also got banned on AoPS once, under the username Liebe_ist_Krieg, mostly for trolling some Young Earth Creationists at RT...
Okay, I promise I'll behave here, though!
(Yeah, this is TheChainheartMachine/Liebe_ist_Krieg from AoPS. I'm glad to see some familiar faces.)
The cold never bothered me anyway.
