We might just help someone over a difficult period in their lives. He is 27 but seems that much younger to me. Perhaps I am getting soft in my old age

Was it because he wanted to change his name too many times and logged in under a false names or something else?
Lately he has been playing games trying to get back in here and I not into playing games. He needed to apologize to John and ask for a second chance. Not the way he has been going about it in the latest attempts.

I agree with being tolerant - to an extent. I also agree with Kathryn that there could be some kind of disability involved.
That said, this is John's forum and he makes the calls. It is hard to enforce the rules without creating dissent if someone is allowed to skate for this reason and another for that reason. Pretty soon, there is no reason to have rules.
My heart agrees with Kathryn; but my head tells me this is not a therapy forum. The standards here are high and they are enforced - across the board and fairly as far as I can tell.
