I think you're overreacting, Crash, my impression was that Moose simply wanted you to consider toning down the level of 'low-content' posts. That perhaps EvC was experiencing an overweight of blathering or trivial posts, and that this inevitably was increasing the noise-to-signal ratio unfavourably.
I don't think he meant to brand you less-than-helpful member #12, but instead to suggest a lowering of the level of low-content posts by all members would improve the quality of discussion.
Of course, this is all impression, only the Moose can tell us for sure.

Re: DT threw the first punch...
Given that suspension is also a very rare event, I fail to see why an offense which warrants suspension does not also warrants corrective action by removing the offending material. The message(s) appear(s) to be devoid of any useful information or redeeming quality.
Because doing so removes the record of why the suspension was incurred, and also acts to clean the record of the offender?

Re: Satire you say
I believe the original thread ([b]thread[/d] dammit! Not string!) was satirical but justifiably so - I consider satire to be a valid and useful way of making a point. And I think in this case it highlighted a valid point.
Having said that, I find the way that certain evos rapidly diverge onto a cyclical loop of Syamsu mocking neither pretty nor productive - without that diversion it could well have been a worthwhile thread.
Having said that (again), I agree that the Admin's repeated attacks on the more jovial evo elements is rather out of whack with the longstanding tolerance of Syamsu.
