    What can a person be banned (temporarily) for?

    I have reached the conclusion that there may be some general uncertainty of what is and what is not permisible on this bulletin board, and what the penalties can be for various actions. I have tried to compile a representative list of all the hypothetical misdeeds one could imagine to be perpetrated on this bb, but in doing it I have realised no such list can ever hope to be exhaustive. DISCLAIMER: Please note I am in no way insinuating that all such behaviours have necessarily occurred on this bb nor am I accusing any particular person of any such behaviour. As far as I know, options 10, 11 and 12 do not apply to Matt.

    2 & 3 really depend on what you past while drunk.
    As for 7, I don't know what a hydra is apart from a mythical creature, or a secret sociaty dedicated to evil.

    Gee, didn't think of that. Is that what you would have voted for? If so, click "other" and post that here, "none of the above" or whatever

    hydra accounts are multiple accounts that originate from the one user, many heads, one body, like the original hydra.

    Nah, I found some. Two of those are legal issues (defamation and sexually suggestive to a minor) so had to vote yes on those. Another (improper promotion/spam) is also kind of a legal issue.

    The only one that's not that I voted for is the 'continual warnings plus continual disobedience' thing. If a forum has such rules then sure, temp ban. However, I will say that policy can be too strictly adhered to at times, so there should be a degree of discretion on which those moderation powers are exercised.

    Banned for insulting Bill? Shouldn't that instead carry some kind of reward, like +reputation? (oh wait it's been disabled... maybe just some free cookies then).

    And come on.. posting drunk?! That's where all the fun posts originate, i.e. kegless!

    I considered the "business interests" one would apply reasonably well to Liberace-was he not banned for plugging the Guru's business(which he is now part of)? As for the last two, those bannings related to the disclosure of PMs, is that correct? Guess I forgot about that one. Well, if anyone wants to vote for that they can do it in "other" and specify "disclosure of PMs" or something in a post. I assume you won't?

    I apologise GC, I missed that option.

    As for ACs banning wasn't it thread related?

    Cheers Fg7

    Apparently was because he kept trying to repost a post that was deleted as it was deemed off-topic.

    Aren't "can" and "should" totally different questions?

    I also voted other and as asked:

    Disclosing PM's without other person's permission.
    Re posting posts/comments from the coffee lounge to open forum.
    Continually posting off topic, especially with the purpose of creating mischief and trouble.
    i am sure there are others, but cant think of them at the moment
