No, I have not been asked until now but I will honor that request even though he has been rude, arrogant, and condescending from the start. Actually, I had no idea that 'Newfie' had any negative connotation in his culture but if it does I then apologize to him.
But you know what? As a moderator here, you have seen fit come in to a thread I started on global warming and disrupt it with off-topic trolling and insults with absolutely no intention of contributing anything germane to the topic. This speaks volumes about the kind of person and moderator you are. You should conduct yourself more appropriately if you are moderating a forum.
