    Well, not really about him, so much as something I noticed in trying to fix his problem with creating new threads. Even though he was no longer in the Faceman group, it was still affecting his permissions. Any permission setting in that group applied to him as a user. I think this means the system can't differentiate between user and group names when it comes to the permissions hierarchy. Therefore, no more group names that match user names. :bailey:

    I deleted his group, as it served no purpose. I did not notice if we had any other groups named for users, but if anybody else happens to notice one, it should be renamed.

    Renamed the Packard group to Packarded as a precaution.

    I thought the Packard group was for those immune to bannings of any sort (and thus why not even Packard's in it)? :unsure:
