    yeah, lol, hate those mods.
    I think I lasted a whole 3 posts before I got banned, actually I wasn't banned, my posting privileges were removed, basically the same thing though.

    But lol @ Eric Bornemann, you have to admit that mugshot of him looks like a proper criminal, and what on earth is he wearing, looks like he's wrapped in a straight jacket, shame maybe he just had a mad moment, like Koekemoer does when he goes skinny dipping in the neighbours pool, yes Sean, I heard all about that. :lol:

    :lol: Time for the roles to be reversed I think, Sean must stay at home and cook, clean, watch the kids, while mommy goes out to work and play.

    Sadly, I think he's wearing one of those "Humane Restraint" suits that they put on people they fear might attempt suicide.

    I'm actually surprised by how sad this all makes me. Even though I thought he was a bad researcher and too irresponsible to have a permit to take wild protected corals, I wouldn't have wished something like this on him.

    I suppose, the only positive way to look at it is to think, if he does have drug/alcohol problems, maybe this will be the event to force him to get help. Who knows? Whatever it is, I hope he comes back from it all and comes back to the hobby as the talented and entertaining reef aquarist he was.

    Looks like a ninja outfit... But that's impossible. A ninja wouldn't have been caught.

    This is quite a hectic story. Dr Herbert R. Axelrod was also arrested. But for Tax Evasion... There are lots of reef keeping criminals out there... Not sure if I trust any of you buggers anymore. :eek:
