About a year ago, I had an fairly serious issue with (name redacted) and he ended up on the 86 list. (5th down)
I just had a long conversation with him. Based on this conversation I would like to un 86 him for a number of reasons.
a potential employer in netsec found this information. In this case it would be fair to take it down, but not necessarily unban him.
He did apologize, and explained some of his actions and knew it wasn’t an excuse. At the time, things were very stressful for him for many reasons. I knew that at the time, but was more concerned the stress would push him towards acting on this threats. We spoke about how he is dealing with the issues, and how much he has missed the space in the previous year. I thought his feelings towards the space were the most compelling, especially in terms of informing his future behavior.
I feel comfortable un 86’ing him, and I would give him a second chance to access the space.
I explained to him that the behavior, meant or not, won’t be tolerated ever and will result in a permanent 86 if there is a next time.
If this issue is resolved, I will anonymize this post but would like to keep it up so we have.
