|banned from the end of the world|

GWT is interesting and potentially useful, but it seems really raw and beta even at version 1.4. For instance, if you try to build a project with malformed XML in the configuration file, you get a stack trace rather than an error message. For another, there's this little joy of an alert that I get when trying to run a simple RPC test from GWT In Practice:
So I post the problem to the GWT Google Group, leaving out the parts about how GWT seems really raw and beta and how they should give me a fucking break. I subscribe to the group and get a couple digests that don't contain the answer to my question.
I stop getting digests after 10am today, go back to the group page to see what's up, and it turns out I'm banned. Not clear why, no recourse to contact the administrator to find out. Since I'm banned, I can't even look at my post to see if I was inadvertently rude somewhere, though it wouldn't surprise me if the post vanished as part of the ban.
I'd love to start throwing out conspiracy theories, but my guess is actually that the admin saw the <script> element in the error message I posted and assumed I was trying to post an XSS exploit or something.
