You can change tone, but drastically changing the *way* that you communicate is very difficult. And one thing I got a lot of experience with managing BTF day-to-day was ferreting out sockpuppets.

Publius is not nearly as belligerently offensive as Kevin was, perhaps he's gotten older and mellower, perhaps he's making a conscious effort to not get banned, perhaps he's staying on his meds :-). Publius' beliefs regarding various topics appear to match Kevin's, but Publius is more, ahem, tactful, in how he presents them
dlf (or anybody else): Is the arbitrator constrained to make a ruling between what the two parties are asking for (i.e., between 0 and 211 games in this case)? If MLB were to make the argument, "A-Rod used in 2009: violation 1; A-Rod used in 2010: violation 2; A-Rod used in 2011: violation 3. Under the terms of MLB drug policy, 3 violations can be punished by a lifetime ban. We only did 211 games as a courtesy to A-Rod." Could the arbitrator (theoretically - setting aside the likelihood of this actually happening) say, "I agree with MLB: this is 3 separate violations. I'm going to ban A-Rod for life."?
Then how come you never found out any of mine?
(Confession: I'm RDP as well as Esoteric. All those knock-down dragouts we've had over steroids are really just me arguing Sybil-like with myself.)
