Sorry for this question, but I still need to understand the different dynamics of this site (site which I find very interesting and helpful).
I'd like to understand if I can trust users who are currently suspended.
I am referring in this specific case to a user who is very active both on ELU and ELL (probably a bit too much) in giving advice especially to new users like me.
I've seen that this user is currently suspended from ELL, I have no idea why but I guess that being suspended is not a good thing.
Does this imply that this user should not be trusted or is it just a temporary problem that has no impact on the reputation of the user?
I want to clarify that I am not referring to their (the suspended user) linguist competence, but to their advice on the rules and their application on these sites. If they have been suspended, I may reasonably suspect that their behaviour was not "compliant" to the sites rules, so "should I trust them in this respect"?
