I just witnessed someone getting the banhammer

And all the while, I know what the ban was for. Question is; how much amount of trolling or what is deemed worthy of banhammer? Is it the max number of infractions? Reported posts?

It's on a case by case basis. Generally we go through the warning, infraction system and if the behaviour just keep repeating it will escalate. other times if someone right off the bat comes in and starts posting offensive images (as a random example) they'll get removed right away.

reports are the primary way we're alerted to such behavior and we act upon those reports.

So the mods does a huddle and make the executive decision as a group?

There’s no predefined limit that we work with. Some offenses are worthy of an instant banning while others are more cumulative. We don’t publicly disclose the details around a users banning except with other staff and the banned user.

So you can still talk to the user after the ban or is it more like "hey, we decided that you need a banning" and then ban them?

Also, what is to stop the banned user from creating a new login? Do you IP ban, etc...? Does banning result in being able to login but not post?

Is there a way to see a 'banned members list'? In the alternative, how may I join the staff in order to have access to said info? :D

Temporarily banned users still have access to PM's. Permanently banned users can contact us via our contact us page.

Nothing outright stops them however if we determine a previously banned user has returned, there's a high likelihood the new account will be banned.
