In an effort to avoid the sidetracking of other threads around the forum, this thread has been created for moderators to announce when a member has been banned, for how long, and for what reason. As previous discussion of bans has led to threads being locked, this thread will remain locked so that only moderators can post in it. It won't be stickied, though, and hopefully it'll get moved to the back pages pretty quickly. Please also note that in the case where members have only been banned temporarily, they will be coming back eventually and so please avoid any inappropriate discussion of their bans elsewhere on the forum.
The moderators' decisions on bans are final, but if you wish to contact us with regards to a ban, please do so either by reporting a post and detailing your issue in the report reason, or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
