I haven't a clue of what CRISPRS is about (but it doesn't belong in this topic)
Yes, CRISPRS are an example of non-random mutations. A perfect example, in fact. I have said as much in other threads/posts.
This is the wrong forum and topic for discussion of whatever this CRISPRS is or isn't. It belongs in a "Biological Evolution" topic.
If there is a relevant existing topic (as in, it is really on topic there), please give that topic a bump and a comment (a link back to this mess might also be a good thing).
If there is no such existing topic, how about a new topic (of course, with a good topic title)?

A suspension I really felt bad about
This was a long time ago, and I'm not naming names. This member hasn't been active in a long time.
The admin staff had information that one of the evo side members had suffered a great personal tragedy. As I recall, his ex-wife and at least one child had very recently been killed in an auto accident.
Unfortunately, at that same time, this member also ended up posting one or more pretty ugly messages, and I gave him a suspension (this was back before the suspension lengths could be pre-set - The un-suspensions had to be manually done).
It was a difficult situation - I didn't feel I was at liberty to give out info on the members personal problems as a mitigating excuse, but I also didn't feel I could let the forum transgressions just pass. In hindsight, I probably should have just let it pass with taking any action.
Please, no fishing for information of who this member was.

Or something like that.
