:P I know this makes me sound like I've been on the forum for a long time (which I haven't) but: I remember around the time I joined, there weren't that many bans. Banned members were only banned for serious offenses or repeated offenses. There were members who would be warned twice, maybe even three times before being temporarily banned. Even then, it was only for about a month or so, then they'd get back on... then the ones who didn't listen after a temporary ban and would keep on acting incorrectly would be permenantly banned.
This makes me really upset, it makes me feel like this forum isn't as welcoming, accomodating, or understanding and family-ish as it once was. :/
Edit: also, the ones that come back as new users, I"m not counting them, the same person's multiple accounts are just one person to me and were banned for being idiots and returning, so that's acceptable. But others, new people seem to be banned for the stupidest of things with no warning at all...
