Hi Tim,

Criticism of any kind (constructive or not) is a very important component of 
freedom. It's just freedom of speech, if you do not like his ideas just 
ignore it. As a person who lived under comunism I'm very sensitive to any 
kind of censorship (which is useless anyway in this case, because he can 
express his opinions elsewhere). For this reason I hope you will change your 
mind and unban Ilya.

Thank you.
