If you’ve followed the thread, it’s unlikely he would ever return to this forum.
I have and also re-read through it all again last night and I agree that he likely will never return. It’s more our apparent “response” to finding out he is making a profit from editing the movie that I thought may be important if faced with the mouse coming down hard on the matter. Banning his account and only leaving the thread open as a means of discussing his editing choices and methods I thought might be a prudent course to take. Of course that is for yourself, the other mods and Jay to decide.
