no it's been like that since he was IP banned, Jeff just forgot to change it...
Actually, when you get IP banned it doesn't say that you've been banned below your username. If it's a temporary ban then it will have the 'banned' text under the username. So I'm 99% sure that as of right now he has been permanently IP banned unless Jeff plans on letting him back on his own in time.
Sucks that Cool got banned, he should PM Jeff and ask him to come back, I'm sure Jeff will lift the IP ban eventually, maybe a week or two the most.
If its a permanent ban, then thats complete BS... there are MANY more offenders that are trolls and behave much worse and detract from this forum. I am disappointed to see this happen and its just not consistent.
Cool has been a solid and consistent contributor! (except for when he fights with Lakerfreak)
