Is theDX still banned?

He did the COMG thread. His post there are all gone but the first on that thread. If you click his profile it goes nowhere. His profile doesn't exist.

His profile might be set to private. IIRC, if you set your profile to private, anyone who you don't authorize (you can set profile access to everyone, registered users only, friends only, or nobody) cannot view your profile, and clicking the link to it just redirects you to that members page.

This makes sense. It Explains why Trunks, an admin can click on it but not regular users.

I hadn't even thought of that. I forgot that was a thing people can do.

There is a lot of people that uses this setting, since here there is no real private or sensitive information for me it is pointless, but well they still use it.

Serious question but what's stopping this happening again? What's even the point of commenting on this site anymore if there's a chance anything I write, any thread a create just disappears because someone was angry he got banned.
