That's assuming the mods made an example of him. Could just be a strict interpretation and consistent enforcement of the rules. The board has been getting rather laid back until these past few weeks, ex. running commentaries in For Sale threads, numerous accusations against the mods.
For what it's worth, I too, (based on the little info I have about this case) am of the opinion that Identity didn't deserve a perma-ban. He apparently got it from dealing with a tempban the wrong way, a moment of hotheadedness at the worst time possible. This isn't a democracy, though.
