You're so damn right. I'm covering him all the time.
I banned him once and Maxtor told me to unban him, after that he was banned from other mods and then asked again to be unbanned or to let him be with the new accounts, after some point i just got bored banning and then asking to unban him so i didn't do anything.
I don't have personaly something with Kara, he's been nothing but good with me, however i know to seperate my personal likings from what i have to do in the forum to protect other members.
Also one more thing, if members are dumb enough to get scammed by someone already banned it's their personal choice, we've said several times how to avoid being scammed and almost 95% of scammed members always sees the signs but just ignore them. Now regarding Kara i know that he made a lot of successful deals since i even have done some works with the same clients as him and most of reports against him are reports because he (for the guys report him) didn't provide full functionality of the codes or was late to deliver the product and maybe that's why people still trust him.
