A doggerel-writer, a keener,
By mean peers was judged coarse and obscener:
("From this site, you are banished!")
Wrote some winners, then vanished —
He'd committed a gross misdemeanour.
Here's our hope: We'll now cope, much serener.

Authors' Note: We are talking here about an open-forum collaborative website, so the reader will realize that there are only a few opportunities for misdemeanourship. A major one was apparently undertaken by the prolific writer in question, but he did leave behind some great five-liners, including this author's favorite — (originally published under the title 'depressing').
WORKING AT ZOOS
The work is depressing at zoos,
So I often go home with the blues.
And it's getting more bleak;
For example, last week,
We received really terrible gnus.
