That's a bit harsh.

What's the penalty for the people who spam my phone all day or who drop advertisements all over my front yard? Maybe a penalty for auto-play videos on Websites should be enacted. Or a penalty for Websites that route rush-hour drivers through quiet residential neighborhoods to avoid congested main roads?

Typically in Canada, lesser crimes earn 2 years less a day. This keeps the person out of prison, but in jail.

Number one, he wasn't an astronomer but a telescope hobbyist and number two - people here don't get banned but they do get bullied which is more like the genuine workings of a society. You can't survive in this forum if you are weak so although there are plenty of best-boys-in-the-class type contributors, more work gets done here than in all the institutions on Earth put together where cause and effect or structural interpretation is involved.

Every now and again the insights make it into wider circulation in a half-assed but the hard work was done here in this unmoderated forum where people maintain their own discipline instead of being forced by 'moderators'.

Most here are empirical clones or drones so they are immune to productive and creative work while all those who think they are astronomers because they own telescope equipment are like people who own a guitar and think they are composers.

When I was a kid, I had a guitar and made up new lyrics to popular songs. Most of us probably did that. So we are composers, even if we never made any money at it.

That wouldn't make you a composer, but a lyricist. Like Hammerstein or Lerner.
The respective composers were Rodgers and Loewe.

If you had heard me play the guitar, you would have considered me a composer too. It was that bad.
