Why do you want to ban him? If it is because he is trying to  
contribute in some form or fashion and is not flaming I think he  
should be allowed to stay. Some (MOST) of my posts aren't considered  
by reactos so when someone actually stumbles onto a resource they  
find interesting, insightful people want to ban them, wow sounds like  
the sharing of ideas isn't what you are all about. Sharing ideas and  
resources is what opensource is about. I find it frustrating when  
people write those kinds of posts asking someone to be banned. It is  
opensource, he is trying to contribute something, jump off of your  
high horse. Nobody is a programming god, we can all learn something.
