I recognize that name. Some of his posts were... memorable. I'm not surprised to hear he was banned.

Hi Pawan,
Why would you listen to someone about the future of Apache Phoenix who has no involvement in or knowledge about the project? Michael Segel was banned on the HBase lists for a while due to being too belligerent. He's not a committer on any Apache project. Has he even contributed a patch? To any project? Ever?

Hello Phoenix group,


There was some doubt on phoenix project closing down in future so wanted to confirm with you.  I don’t see that coming but It will be helpful to have your views. Thank you.
