Looking quickly back to June 8 (God bless Gmail! ^.^), I find the following
clarification from Eliezer on the killthread:

"Obviously the Killthread wasn't for that, but because of the apparent
sliding into ad hominem."

I take this to mean that the topic isn't permanently banned and can be
raised again after a reasonable interval provided it doesn't slide into ad
hominem again; correct me if I'm wrong?
