Any bans were for things like starting fights, wrecking threads, or getting abusive over vivaciti and a couple of other vISPs like them. Partial
as a nick means exactly what a dictionary says. With his previous nick, which I forget, he was forever harping on about late accounts, non-obvious ADR membership and suchlike of these small firms.
He continues with his latest nick, but gets less opportunity. The march of the big few is continuing with even large ISPs being swallowed up.
Working from an office above a shop was apparently offensive to him. Plenty of small businesses do that - it's how many start then grow. It doesn't need a swanky office to run a small vISP.
Granted, the recent history of vivaciti has become a little disturbing. I stopped recommending them a while ago. Their latest accounts are a month and a half overdue at Companies House.
