I understand that most material is removed extremely quickly, but if you look at the activity of some of the banned members, they didn't act in any way that would lead me to believe they should be banned, and I honestly can't think of them suddenly and randomly making a trolling post, especially with how genuienly intelligent, nice, knowedgeable, etc about bettas most of them were.
*sigh* I had a feeling this thread might technically be ban material, but I was honestly curious about wheter other people were noticing this asides from me...

true, same here....

Also, I apologize for opening this thread up, I probably should have asked around via Pms instead of opening this for everyone. If someone will close/delete the thread, it's probably for best.

when a person keeps coming back after being banned is it because of their love for bettas or do you think they just wanna annoy people?

I'm also sticking to my guns. I think most of the people that got banned broke a rule and deserved it. Whether it was a while back and they've learned their lesson or if it was recently and they have yet to reform. If you're banned you're banned. :P I was surprised by how recent those two were but my opinion still stands.

If they reformed; great. They should e-mail the mods and talk to them about lifting the ban or something. that's the end of my bit in this thread. ;]

I'm a girl! =]

I would surmise that it's because they feel that they're hurt because they've been cut off from what they feel is their community and because (in their mind) the penalty was unduly harsh for their offense. None the less, a forum is quite literally someones private property, bought and paid for by them and as such, you and I are guests subject to their rules.

JK Fish is kind of right, i have seen a couple of people get banned for somethings that they didnt know what they did wrong. Also These people should get from 1-3 warnings based on their action.

The results are in!

Also do keep in mind that mods on a lot of sites have access to the user's IP address...it's quite easy to 'fake' being someone on the internet, but if they have the same IP address as a banned account it's pretty much a dead giveaway.

I'm going to agree with Wallywest and say that the most offensive stuff is usually hidden or removed...and warnings are done with PMs...I remember DQ PMed me once because I accidentaly used an inapporpraite word, so yeah...most of the stuff is hidden from us.
