The idea that a thread is moderated by someone who never posts, never defines any TOU for the thread and is utterly unavailable to respond to criticisms of the moderation, does not pass the smell test for many of us.

Actually, it was Tony himself that banned you (via the moderator), not SI Dave. It would an incorrect assumption that there is no active participation by those two people. For the record, I've asked that you be unbanned, but it's not my call.

Placing blame on people for something they did not do and for reasons that are pure guesswork are why you have so little credibility here.

Why so? There are tens of thousands of other boards on this very site. Many of the existing ones related to this topic have moderators many do not. For example:

siliconinvestor.com
siliconinvestor.com
siliconinvestor.com

Plus, there is no practical limit on the creation of new ones. Not meaning to state the obvious.

Because it was on the short list of widely followed boards on SI. As a thread with much more cachet and interest than the 10,000+ others, it is distasteful to see the moderation completely arbitrary, blind and unaccountable.

This is not a procedural question - it's a "board quality" issue. The other top threads have well-known moderators with pretty clearly stated views on what flies and what won't on their threads.

I know much you guys would love to have Anthony back with all the attention his bellowing attracted. OTOH, if his appeal fails, the appeal of his thread and its importance on SI will keep fading. This issue may end up moot.

Be that as it may, that has always been a moderated, general topic board and bans were and remain pretty much the whim of the moderator.

Those privileges would have to be egregiously abused to warrant administrative intervention, which is (one of the) circumstances the complainant de jour frequently has trouble comprehending.

Thanks
Nothing wrong here.

On April 17,
2004, after he had been arrested and released on bail, Elgindy
went to MacArthur Airport on Long Island and tried to board a
plane with false identification. He was traveling under the name
“Herbert Manny Velasco” and had with him several pieces of
identification bearing variants of that fictitious name, as well
as approximately $25,000 in cash, more than $30,000 worth of
jewelry, blank checks for a bank account belonging to his mother,
and blank checks for an account created in his own name and
listing his country of residence as Lebanon. Elgindy falsely
told the arresting authorities that his name was Manny Velasco,
that he was a jewelry dealer, and that Amr Elgindy, whose name
appeared on several documents and prescriptions in his
possession, was his lawyer. He finally admitted his true
identity when the officers found his California driver’s license.
