Castlemaine had previously been known as Aragon and Occitania before that nation was deleted after threatening to hack The Internationale's forum to access Red Fleet data. Several other nations belonging to Castlemaine were deleted for harassment and impersonation, such as the nations "Fascist Proletaire" and "Mizlee." Moderators publicly warned Castlemaine after the last round of deleted nations that the next offense would result in a puppetsweep. Due to the nature of the latest offense, moderators launched a DOS discussion that lasted two days and was concluded March 20 with a decision to permanently disinvite Castlemaine from NationStates.
Anticom's leaders have named an award for Castlemaine, describing him as "a true hero who fought for what he believed in and never said die."
