Nope, not kidding. From the number of reported posts he was getting it was inevitable.

If you put together a valid argument for him returning please do so.

As Northern Lad rightly said, there is a place for his 'opinions' and it isn't here..

I take a bit of crap for bating people, but I wouldn't dream of going to the lengths that he does.

Personally I disagree with almost everything Beardman says, but surely we are intelligent enough to realise that he is merely trying to provoke debate. Yes, his comments about the Holocaust were ill-advised, but surely a warning would have sufficed. After all, we are guests in his country and would not expect to be banned ourselves if we hinted at criticising Shariah Law or whatever. My vote is to reinstate him.

questioning the holocaust is a bit too personal for some people, I include myself in that category.

freedom of speech on BE for one thing...
and over the past months this guy has had some serious abuse thrown at him, both personally and for his religion, yet he has never done the same thing back....
and as I have said many many times before...if the people that couldn't deal with his posts would just ignore him instead of continuesly (sp?) replying to him and trying to make him see their way of things...he might have left it at that...who knows...
Just as we don't agree with him on most things, he will never agree with us...it works both ways...we don't change, he doesn't change...some of the threads that he's posted on were great entertainment or even interesting...
but, I can take it or leave it all, he's not on my rader, I don't 'do' religion and as such has never managed to upset me...just find it weird that he now is suddenly banned, that's all...

I don't think was trying to provoke debate - more like trying to provoke people.

Setup a poll if you like to re-instate.

I agree I don't think he is a local.. maybe a saudi that has been locked in a shed for the last 30 years..
