"Why was this member banned/unbanned?"-thread
« on: December 22, 2015, 04:52:03 pm »
Though I originally decided not to get a thread like this, today I banned a member and I realized that making a small public announcement about it would actually be a good thing. So, I changed my mind and created this thread. It's to be used only by me or other moderators to explain why members were (temporarily) banned. Mutes and warnings will not be posted here.

StevenChilton is banned for 60 days for making a special thread in the Off-topic section to spoil the new Star Wars movie. I'm not a Star Wars fan myself, but I know and understand people for who it means a great deal. This was a deliberate attempt to ruin the enjoyment of other users, and we simply don't need members who do that.

Stark99 is banned for 30 days for PM'ing a fellow user that he found it good to hear the user's relatives were murdered.

This kind of "Tough guy' behavior will not be accepted.

John Price is unbanned. I forgot to check the date before deleting his ban, but he was banned for around 8 months.

Akko is banned for another 7 days for insults and trolling.

Once bans are revoked or terminated, it's not a good idea to continue the behavior for which one was banned in the first place.

Ketchup is banned for 60 days for using dupe accounts to troll and harass other members by posting private photos.

Let people be aware we take actions like that very serious.
