Recent "history" does not change the nature of a person, nor does it
rebuild the bridges they have burnt.

So you expect us to just ignore all his past problems and give him a
fresh start everytime someone mentions him? Do you really expect us to
not take a persons well-known history into account when dealing with
them? This is at best unrealistic and at worst trollish.

Having witnessed Ciaran playing nice for a while before getting back
to vitriolic attacks several times before, I take all this with a
record-shatteringly-massive grain of salt.

brains fall out and get eaten by zombies.
