I always explain to them the reason. In this situation, I kept thinking to myself, I must have forgotten. Ah then I remembered. I did explain to him. Instead of pm'ing him I wrote it into his signature - it had been there for a month while he was banned. Now I'm pretty sure Admin or Roberto didn't remove this signature, so it must have been Johnson himself. In other words he knew why he was banned but decided to downplay it and put it down to trigger happy mods - easier to keep some respect that way. There were another couple of other users too who feared you would do the same to them.
