I hope they don't ban me for starting this thread.Originally Posted by Marubozo
First geniusGoalie, now john stone - I think I see a tendency... A person gets banned after he gets Man of Month budge!
I went to Members list > search members and typed his name in and nothing came up.Originally Posted by Tangerine_Dream
I think Egor got a temporary ban shortly after getting member of the month as well.Originally Posted by demosfen
now now folks you know this is a taboo topic! but yes he wrote me and told me he was going bye bye.
Gee if its motm then bye bye I guess Im next!
Yeah, it's gonna be either you or varelse
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.Originally Posted by dc dalton
DC fits perfectly, he's very mouthy - 3500 posts in less than a year. It took me almost 2 years to get to 300
I changed my title to Non-member a week or two ago and some one erased it!!
I noticed that. But your signature was still there.
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 approachOriginally Posted by coo_t2
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.Originally Posted by Tangerine_Dream
And permanent bans cannot be removed? I searched the FAQ, but didn't find the answerOriginally Posted by someonewhois

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.Originally Posted by coo_t2
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.Originally Posted by Tangerine_Dream
