You know how usually, when you click on a poster's name, it get you either to their profile, or to the page that states that the contractor's profile is set to private? (And occasionally to their posting history, I've never quite figured out how I did that when it happened.)

I just clicked on a name and got the "You are not authorized to access this page" screen.

It happened once before and that person was never seen on the forum again.... All other names I clicked on (to check) including my own behaved in exactly the way I expected: It either got me to their profile or the "set to private" page.

Anyone know? The name still shows as blue, so not someone who has deleted their account (they show as non-clickable / black.)

I don't. 3000+ posts without any real content. Racist, sexist, offensive, dishonest, manipulative, creepy as hell and thick as two short planks..... There is nothing droll about a common troll.

It's entirely possible that she was angry after the ban and just decided not to return even after it expired.

Yeah, she

Yeah, she decided not to come back. She can still be contacted via Twitter, for those who are interested.

About frigging time!

I would have that that post showing things nobody wanted to see would have done it long before now.
