When someone's banned...

I'm always interested in stuff that's none of my business. I'm sure we all are, which is why we're here reading this stuff. Anyway, when you see a person's been banned, are you ever curious why?

Personally, I look up their most recent posts, and read the ones that are closed and try to piece it together. Then I decide if the ban was justified or not.

Anyone else do this?


Johnny - I'm pretty sure their post on puppies didn't get closed, though. I don't read any open posts they've made.

You should keep in mind that the post they made to get themselves banned will often be deleted due to offencive content. So if their second last post is about how great puppies are then dont asume that the post was the reason for the ban.

Yeah, I will always check out bans if I see them. If it's a dead end, oh well. But I'm always interested in that perverse staring-at-a-car-crash kind of way.

Also note that people occasionally request temp bans to keep themselves away from the forums for short periods of time..

Also guilty of trying to satisfy my curiousity, if the posts don't give it away I duck into chat for any fool rumors or stories those crazies can come up with.

I go as far as to ask if the reason is not evident, knowing full well there's a moratorium on discussing bannings and such questions are PM material. I'm a nosy bastard.

Im not very active anymore, but I did use to think that bannings should be public. To show the operation of the mods etc, to show that people that others dont actually get away with push lines. I guessed this applies more to the trading forms.

If I "know" them through their posts then yes I am, if not I really don't care so much.

I confess I do a bit of police work if I notice someone is banned.

It's an old ban.. I just happened to see it because an old post was bumped. I read through the various closed posts, and it just didn't seem like it deserved a perm ban. Just got me thinking, that's all.

I've tried to get myself banned from here but failed <sigh> now I can't be bothered since I did succeed on another forum and I'm running out of places to spam ;)

Dondrei and I used to exchange PMs about banninatings, but I'm barely active enough to know who is still posting these days, much less who has been banned.

Hell yeah : Especially when it concerns someone that can be considered a regular. Those 5 posts bannings are usually self explanatory, but what did those 5k posters do wrong when they have all that experience in not getting banned :)

I do a little bit of investigating when I see someone that's been around a while banned. If it's some random that joined yesterday, I don't care why they were banned.

If searching for past posts don't lead to a reason why they were banned, I just poke one of the mods on MSN for answers.

Go out and socialize then. Go poke some kangaroos or toss koalas at cars.

Being the nosy bugger that I am, I pretty much always go snooping when I've noticed someone get banned. Sometimes I point and laugh, other times I shake my head.
