He (and those that may defend him) must be able to speak their minds. On the other hand, those the present situation isn't fair to those of us with grievances. The present situation also is, in total, harmful to the project.

 I'll second this.  If you want to ban somebody in this project, you should t least give them a chance to defend themselves.  This isn't a guy posting porn on a forum visited by children (who should always be banned).  He is doing useful edits.  In fact, as of late, he's been doing a lot of work twinning highways that need it in Florida.  We don't have as enough people as we need to get all highways that are divided twinned here in the USA. --James
