I don't want to just tilt myself at the "settling private issues" conspiracy, but I swear that anything short of fraud to the ABA would not warrant the kind of noise a suspension creates (and the ensuing PR buzz, which is infinitely more powerful than a simple retraction would have been).
tl;dr - if the conspiracy theorists are incorrect, then this suspension is likely a poor decision (barring the obvious potential that we're still missing key information)
Ya, the more I think about it, the more this seems correct.
Given the popularity of Dean Pless as well, it must either be something bigger than this or somebody's got an axe to grind with him.
