    Looks like he was, says Non-member in his profile. Of course, this thread will now be locked, since discussing banned members is not allowed

    Guys, guys, guys... Since john.stone reached SitePoint Addict level, he can write anything in his title, say, "The Governor of Texas state". And you gonna believe him?

    I think Egor got a temporary ban shortly after getting member of the month as well.

    I believe the trend is more of mouthy members, not members of the month. Afterall, Globalfusion was banned, and he was never MotM.

    Yeah, they'll definitely ban you after you kill Archbob for making fun of your age.

    DC fits perfectly, he's very mouthy - 3500 posts in less than a year. It took me almost 2 years to get to 300

    Yes, and he cannot receive PMs, but why his member profile is still active and doesn't say that he was banned? Another "ToDo" for SPF usability/UI? BTW some russian (custom) forums use so-called forum "rules" and "violation notices", so when a member violates one or more forum rules, (s)he gets a violation notice (datetime - thread/post - violated rule ## - moderator - ...) record in his profile; after 5 serious violation notices (the threshold depends on the forum configuration) like advertising in inappropriate forums or abusing people, (s)he gets banned. IMHO this is much fair and more pedagogical approach

    SP does too. They warn, then give 1 week ban, then warn, then give permanent ban. We don't know, and definitely shouldn't speculate, what John Stone's status is. He is, however, currently banned.

    And permanent bans cannot be removed? I searched the FAQ, but didn't find the answer

    I don't think SitePoint's policies has anything that says they'll ban you for killing a fellow member. Well, maybe that'll fall under the "respect others" bit.

    And I've been member of the month and I've never been banned. Yet. Just to keep the streak alive, maybe this will do it:

    I think Vinnie Garcia is a big doody-head.

    They can be lifted (anything's possible), but they usually aren't. Someone usually has to be a repeat offender or do something pretty brazen (i.e. first 10 posts are all spam) to warrant a permanent ban.

    Our dealings with members are confidential. In order to respect John.Stone's privacy we can't discuss this matter - hence the locking of this thread, I hope you can appreciate that.
