I wish he had not. :(

But his last round of actions were totally out of line. :angry: :gripe

And he seemed to self-destruct simultaneously at several other sites. :(

It makes me wonder if something else was going on in his life. :unsure:

For my part, I have long since forgiven him.

But what I do know is that since he ceased to dominate the site we have seen many new faces around here. :dance

And I have to wonder how many of them would have joined up if he were still here. ;)

Well, I don't really think he scared newcomers away - but then I didn't know him. I asked a certain "Unicorn55" on AOKHG forums if he was mabuse from aiscripters - the reply was "No comment on that :)".
Is it possible that he can be allowed back? I'm sure most of us could learn a lot from him about scripting.

I did learn a lot from Mabuse, and I am still learning from studying his scripts. He is one of the most talented scripters there is. Unfortunately, I think he burned his bridges when he hacked the website. I do not believe he will be allowed back.

Hacked the website? I didn't realise it was that serious... :(

I think he had redirected it to a "different" site. A site that tried to give you a Trojan virus. :o

let it rest guys. The reasons for the action were very good ones.

Well, i still don't understand why Mabuse did that to the site. His partecipation in forums life induces me to think he liked this community... :huh:

However i really don't think he discouraged newcomers from scripting or posting on the site. When i joined he was the one who helped me the best, and who usually wins all tourneys... :lol:

He was (and i hope he still is) a sort of guru of AIscripting, it was very difficult that he couldn't answer a question. :P

Now i know the real motivation of his ban, and, also if i think something strange happened, i cannot disagree with administrators about their decision.

About giving him a second chance...
As far as i know he already spent his second chance. :P
He said: " And evil will come again from its ashes! "

And I thought: " Grrrr... My AI can't... "
