might be a good idea

this post is pinned at the top of the proxy list freebie section
https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/proxy-list-posters-read-this.224401/

i will not get into banned part not my field, wouldnt it be prudent to remove that
pinned thread of proxy section posting rules
and have it replaced by a pinned rule post of a respected active mod/admin. ?

sends out the wrong kinda signal the rules for that section is layed
down by a banned former mod. just a thought.
