Default Steve Hoffman Forums - has anyone else been banned for no reason?

I was browsing the site as usual this morning, and suddenly I received the following message:

"You have been banned for the following reason: SCum."


When I signed up for a new account, I posted a few messages, and within minutes I was banned again (same message).

I rarely posted but had been a member for a decade.

Has this happened to anyone else?

There seems to be plenty of other people who have had surprise bannings. Maybe it's what he does for fun.

Damn, that is eye opening. I guess I never spent that much time there.

I remember Hoffman working on Blue Note reissues years ago, and right around that time he began to trash the original engineer (& legend) Rudy Van Gelder. When I questioned his motives, my posts were wiped out.

Why is it called the Steve Hoffman forums? Who is Steve Hoffman, anyway?

I think you'll find it's a lot more fun here.

I remember looking at Steve Hoffman forums one time. When I saw a thread where people were tediously arguing over which Eagles remasters sounded the best I got the hell out of there.
