I realize he was a respected member of the hunter forums, and represented a very successful player for the hunter class, so I'll chime in here to clarify as much as I can.
We can't divulge any information regarding disciplinary action unless it's to the person that has had action taken against them, so specific reasoning isn't something I can give. I can however tell you that it's a temporary suspension from the forums, which has no bearing on his access to the game. Forum and in-game warnings and suspensions are not tied in any way, they're completely separated in that regard.
It's normal procedure when dealing with specific types of posts to moderate them in such a way as to remove all posts made from that account. This was one of those cases, and unfortunately it may have resulted in some informational or otherwise useful posts being removed. We apologize if that's the case and hope those threads have been archived in some way.
I'll close by saying that the moderation action was taken for a specific reason, there was no amount of hard feelings or animosity involved with any statements that he may have made. If you look around you can see that we're not just suspending people for saying something generically negative about a class, skill, etc. I'll be bluntly honest and say that I doubt the moderators have any idea who he is, but I can at least verify that the reasoning for the suspension taking place was appropriate and standard for the type of offense in-question.
