Yeah. It's classic that someone who is an "independent thinker" will
start to accuse a mailing list of "group think". I guess if that your
accusation that this mailing list and the hackerspace you were banished
with are both examples of "group think" then I might as well go and dig
up your past since I am curious what got you booted in the first place.

So from this we learn the following:
- You were banned from IRC after being harassing and then evaded your bans
- You harassed the hackerspace via e-mail
- You have no ability to compromise with the hackerspace
- You have no desire to change your behaviour
- People have tried to mediate but you've demonstrated no desire to change
Then we go on later into this thread to find the following:

So you're obviously toxic to this hackerspace. Why are you causing
people to leave? I see references to you stalking them around the space.
Then we see other examples from the mailing list of your warnings:
On the second link, we're referred to this page:
> Harassment on IRC and in person, evasion of IRC bans.
And then finally this:
> Harassment on IRC and in person, evasion of IRC bans
And according to this, it's valid for a year. Have you given any thought
to maybe taking a fucking break and seeking help?
Also, complaining about being mean about RMS is funny when he's known to
be a creeper himself, has the most obnoxious conference attendance
requirements, and is known to eat things stuck to his foot:
Quit posting on this mailing list, Peter. Nobody cares about your plight
and from all appearances your ban was more than rightfully deserved.
