Good grief Steve, are you going out of your way to upset Jeremy ?? As 
for Jeremy having the power to ban you, probably not by himself, but I 
wouldn't lay money on it, if he was to suggest banning you, I am very 
sure the rest of the devs would support him.

I suggest that you apologise (even if you think you shouldn't) and stop 
allowing everybody and anybody to post as 'Steve'. It gets very 
confusing when 'Steve' posts and it turns out not to actually be 
'Steve'. If you do get banned, they will probably ban you from the samba 
list as well and it wouldn't be the same without you.
