  1. One More Question

    Once someone is banned, are they allowed to come back after a certain amount of time, or is it just a 1 strike and you're out policy? I only ask because I have seen several posts where someone's rank under their avatar was listed as "Banned" (I understand that your ranking is changed on all past posts when your rank actually changes - I was just curious if they are ever allowed back to the forum...perhaps after a few hours on the rack, or in the Iron Maiden?

    Hmmmm.....I never noticed that. Guess I'll actually have to read the Forum Rules.

    Just something I was wondering about...I should probably read the forum rules myself...

    When I ban someone I send them an e-mail telling them that if they promise to behave I will unban them...

    Correction; some come just to ban, i.e. create a new account for it, for them I give no options...

    They usually create a bot that posts a few hundred replies... Mass Prune and ban gets rid of that...

    Understood...and yes Stormbringer...I was supposed to read the rules and TOS when I signed up...I suppose I didn't read them carefully enough....I stand corrected.

    Well as long as everyone is straightened away, and you don't have to be the one that needs to get banned, lets move on.
