Ron Maimon has his account "temporarily suspended" network-wide, as stated in one of his profiles:
This account is temporarily suspended network-wide. The suspension period ends on Aug 8 '26 at 7:47.
His profile at Stack Overflow. Here is global profile.
On his chat profile, the ban is for 273 years (3 centuries).
This user is suspended on the parent site and cannot chat for 99737 days.
Does temporary mean for the next 10 years (which is 2026) till his retirement, or is it a typo and is supposed to be '16? Also, why is the chat profile inconsistent, and it reads 99737 days?
Three centuries is quite a while for a "temporary" ban.
He was mainly active at the Physics site, where he was blocked probably by talking openly about cold fusion (LENR), which seems to be off-topic there. Does it mean his ban should be active for the next 10 years across all Stack Exchange sites? If the date is not a typo, should his account be suspended only for one specific site across the network?
BTW, the maximum limit seems to be 1 year (unless it's a spam user with multiple accounts, so it's calculated differently). So if the limit is one year, and this user has been temporarily suspended by a regular moderator before the limit has been introduced, should the suspension time be adjusted to the current maximum limits?
