What part of GSU basically spent their entire existence causing the team gigantic headaches and violated conduct codes like a million times do you not understand? They didn't just decide to ban them for the hell of it, they simply got fed up with dealing with all the nonsense. As I said I had no problems with them personally but they only have themselves to blame for this.
Great, the other groups cause headaches all the time too and violate conduct codes all the time. Just because the FO lets ESC and Viking slide because they "play nice" in other ways has no bearing on what could happen down the line. Still haven't seen a statement from ESC, but I may have missed it. Thanks for pointing out the VIking statement - it's better than nothing.
