To a man, they have all told me that they won't be bothering to re-signup. Reps with hundreds of posts aren't acquired easily, and if the forum admins hold them in so little regard, it's obviously some kind of coded message to p!ss off.

Probably for good.
No doubt this post will get canned, and my account banned.
