It wasn't me.

Not here.
Some really goofy advice is already going unchallenged in the practical and technical hitting forums
It's like the wild, wild, west for me.....I'm going GOOFY over there........
Thank God we now have a PAID hitting coach over there(technical & practical) to stop me and others from going GOOFY over there.
Remember kids it's knob to the ball and not the barrel.......NOT.

Back on the dirt...
I’m not going to disagree with you SL. He did it to me more than once. But he still shared great knowledge and made you think for yourself sometimes.

Would still like to have him around to provide feedback.

Not sure what happened, but my daughter sees him for hitting when time allows and he one of the most giving coaches I have ever met. His guidance and motivation took her from an infield dribbler to a line driving, confident hitter. She loves her time with him. He would spend all day working with Jenna if his schedule wasn't packed with students. He doesn't accent a dime...

I'm ok with getting him back but just make sure he stays out of the Pitching forum where he would occasionally stray :)
He's possibly one of the better pitching authorities in our area who isn't a PC. He's committed to his hitting students but dang, if he had more time, he'd prolly be the best PC in our hood!

Did he break the rules, or just hurt someone’s feel bads?

From what I have come to understand, FFS made a comment on another DFP'er's promotion of a product. An Admin determined that FFS's comment was over the line, and brought down the ban-hammer. I was not a witness to the interaction. This is what I have learned from other sources.

There's quite a few posters (and some moderators) on this site that are often blunt and a bit over the line with their responses and opinions. His being banned was ridiculous and reminded me of a spat on an elementary school playground. He asked a fair question and based on the response then questioned the site's policies about sales and marketing of products/services on the forum. FFS was told if he asked or mentioned it again he'd be banned, sorta like "if you touch me or step over that line I'm gonna tell" So of course what did FFS do? Exactly, and he immediately asked again. Someone got carried away with the heady powers of the ban hammer and we are all worse off because of it. And also sadly, the gadget being promoted (that seemed to have some real value) is barely being discussed here anymore. They got a bunch of attention, raised the price significantly and ???? Seems like a few folks that were major contributors have also decided to limit their visits. Still a lot of good info and good peeps here at DFP but...tread lightly.
