So, what exactly happened with Masteraden back in the day?
I obviously wasn't around back then, and the fact that he deleted his first account makes it hard to find out everything he said publicly (let alone in PMs or on IRC). From what I could find (mostly what was posted by this incarnation and a few topics started by his previous one), he seems pretty tame compared to Hermoor or even Seifer. Did he do something monstrous behind the scenes, or am I overestimating how hated he is by the mods?
Well, that's just it. I think it's all there. I got a PM or two - mostly Seifer-level b*tching. I think the dealbreaker was that he - apparently - kept complaining and complaining and complaining (about me, I'd assume) to admins, pointing to threads where he trolled himself. That's what got SaiNt angry.
At least I'm pretty sure he didn't do anything particularly remarkable, or I would remember it. I think.
Ah, so I take it that was what sparked the background check.
Well, not really. Sure, I suspected something fishy back then, but since she was behaving and the forums weren't going anywhere, I didn't do anything about it.
It was actually herself that brought up the connection to masteraden, soon after we uncovered Mendy-chan and I believe I did mention few times that we ban for life.
But I'd rather leave the complete explanation into one, larger, coherent post, when we figure out how much info we are going to post.
