Actually we do not ban - not right off, anyway.  There is a progressive "Warning" system, whereby once warned you then have to have each post reviewed by one of us before we publish it (*For* you), and if no further issues come up in a short but defined time period, you revert to normal status.

But if a second warning happens during this time then more restrictions come up.  Don't recall right now what they are (we've never had to warn ANYone since y'all's been behavin' so good anyhow) and hopefully we never have to find out!  It is all in the software which has been tested and refined over several hundred other forums, some of them many times larger than either us or another flashlight forum, so we have a good, solid and proven "autopilot" system already in place.

So unlike some places where it is a short and straight path from the finger of an all-too-human moderator - who arbitrarily "perceives" a slight, however technically correct it may be - to the Ban button, our is a system of checks and balances that serves to keep bias and personal prejudice out of the equation. :headbang:

Is that a bit like the '3 strikes & you're out' system?  :angel4:
