I spoke to thor about the incident and I've decided to unban the affected users. Mistakes were made by thor, and in this case there were extenuating circumstances. It would be great if users didn't attack our mods (and other members too) but we recognize that this comes with the territory and we sometimes need to be able to turn the other cheek. Thor and I had a good discussion about this and he won't be making the same mistakes again. It would be awesome if we all could be a little nicer to each other.
tl:dr we are sorry for the bannings and they are reversed. please don't attack the mods.
