It's not hard to understand. The ProgSoc executive thought that locking
the account of someone who has been a member for over a decade (and who
has donated time and equipment  to the club) was a good idea, and I
think that's bullshit. So... I'm starting a club that doesn't have
policies like that. Beyond that, I want a place where it's easy and
encouraged to collaborate on programming projects, and so far ProgClub
has better facilities than ProgSoc in this regard.

The name of the rule is "in his honour", it's meant to be a gesture of
good faith. I can change it if someone finds it upsetting for some
reason I don't understand.

All policies are locked for editing, and "the first rule of ProgClub" is
a policy. Of course, I'm pretty much *breaking* the policy now, aren't
I, seeing as how I have to respond to you.

I trust your public scolding of Daniel will be forthcoming too. You can
see for yourself that he sought to isolate me and put me down:
Everything I said was in response to that. It's not as if I was going
around picking on people unprovoked.

Where were you when Daniel was picking on me? Huh? Where were you
*then*? I think your double standards are showing.
Anyway, I've moved on, and won't have anything more to say unless I need
to respond to more onlist commentary from people.
