a) #centos-social is not a support channel, as that channel's topic
   clearly states.

b) The ban was *not* for you being correct (because you are not, 5.2
   will have 2.6.18-92, but for your behaviour over the last days/weeks and
   your *constantly* asking about progress on 5.2 (and getting the answer 
   everybody getsdoes, see http://planet.centos.org/).
