I somewhat recall either Jojo or Topaz confirming it somewhere, but I can't seem to find that post, so I could be misremembering. Tho as you said, Nick's comments are vague on which way things went down, you might be right about the facebook thing happening after the ban. It does make more sense.Also, re-reading some posts about his ban 1 2, I don't actually know if he got banned because he posted on Nick's Facebook or if he posted on Nick's Facebook because he was banned. Again a problem with the new forum in that it doesn't give us an explicit reason for ban and a link to the offending post. But I have to wonder why exactly Yoshi even went looking for Nick's personal Facebook to begin with. Nick says he 'blocked' 3 him out of existence, but he doesn't actually say he banned him from the Escapist. It's certainly plausible that he was already banned at the point he contacted Nick, perhaps he was trying to appeal.
