Well, Mae... I remember a few things from Dylan's behavior and we stayed in contact via PM back then. I know he wanted to participate into ACC and win it because of his competitive spirit, but got mad when he was not accepted because of his age (which was against forum rules - see Racism, ageism rules
). From that point on, he started provoking the Mods as revenge - I would be mad too for not being allowed into a joke of a contest because of a stupid rule. Considering it an abuse, I take it he started doing all the things you described, self destructing.
The Mods should correctly enforce the forum rules, and allow Freaky to return to the forum. It was a fair ban indeed, but it started from unfair treatment towards him. They should do the right thing and allow him back.
