I collect photos of various rebel groups, and the one above is one that I had in my collection (although not so large).  The Liberian Rebels were certainly a strangly dressed lot.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

You are muted for 99 days for public discussion of a moderatorial decision.

IrishHermit has been given exactly what he has earned. In fact, I have extended to him mercy by ignoring the numerous calls to ban him and give him instead ONE LAST CHANCE to show us he can act in a responsible manner.

You have shown that you also share in his irresponsibility.

Its so perfectly weird I have to wonder if some hipster fashion drop out isn't involved. Its a professional level of weird you would expect to see on a cat walk.

The man in the middle is about to get ordained a deacon. He serves in our parish. The deacon on his right side is also danish and the older deacon on the left side is norwegian.  :)

 We try to work with you. We forgive you for establishing multiple accounts. We warn you about your actions, and your answer to is to continue to do what we have asked you to stop doing.

The next step up the discipline ladder is muting, which is where you are now.
 The next step up is banning you.

The last time I exercised mercy by not banning someone who was already in a 'warned' state and committed 5 additional infractions, thereby earning a banishment, you criticised this action. Therefore, I have learned my lesson that you have taught me, and no mercy will be exercised for you again.

 I need to apologise to Celticfan1888. I had him confused with another poster, with which I also have had past discussions regarding multiple accounts on this forum.

I do sincerely regret this error. However, it does not impact his past actions regarding his signature, and his consequent discipline.
