Slap is banned for 1 week because of his threatening posts towards other posters. Had this been only one offense, it would not be bannable, but since he had previously been warned more than once about his 'tude, he was banned.
I dont know if he deserved it or not, but Slap certainly does get carried away as much or more so than I have and I have now been banned 3 times (yeah **** you taco, Im holding a grudge).
As for him returning, he will. He's just as much of a loser as the rest of us and he cant stay away. If he does, oh well. Where one falls three more will replace him.
