A] its not really your business if another member is banned, if they are a friend, search their profile, or they can let you know.



B] it would be a waste of time/effort/energy just to post who's banned. Its not conducive to this site's purpose, which is helping.



C] A word of advice, stop dragging topics you post in off topic, I've caught quite a few off topic posts by you, tonight alone.

Well, you don't really NEED to know, lol. It's not exactly something we announce because if they do something bad, it shouldn't be promoted.



Example: My freshman year of high school, we had about 8 bomb threats called in by winter break. Every time the threat was reported on the news. Then, suddenly, they stopped. After that, the bomb threats stopped as well.



I see it kind of like that. Although, obviously the admins may have a different reason.

Don't worry, you're not going off topic...



Well, if you're worried about a member all you have to do is click their name and find out. The reason it says banned, this is all my opinion btw, is because some people are nosy like that and want to know.



Nick - Nice try of what? I get confused too easily :huh: :bag:

I answered your question. The information is made public when a member is banned, but the reason is not announced nor is the ban. Its a quiet operation that shouldn't get much attention.



I didn't give you rude comments, I simple let you know it a 'ps:' that you were breaking a rule in some of the threads on this site, i'll not do it again though, i'll just report your post to a moderator and spare myself the aggrevation of helping you out.



also, new bans probably don't say 'banned' because i think HT admins use the suspension system now..

a) don't have the time to post everyone

b... you only need to worry about your own hide, not everyone elses

c) there's a list of about 20-30 people right know banned just in the support groups alone

d) there are people we ban by IP address in the .htaccess file when they try to get around bans

e) there are over 40 IPs in the .htaccess file

f) too much time taken for alerting everyone - we just alert staff via a bans sub-forum in the staff section so that they can be apprised of the banning as they are the ones this really affects (in case they try to get around the ban)

g) if you want to find out if someone is banned, look at their profile - their tag will say such.

getting banned is sorta like going to jail...

when people go to jail it is in their local paper because they know each other...so in enence if you know them, you can always check their profile...Knowing all who got banned is like reading about people from accross the county who were arrested...its not really necessary...

i think the possibility of getting banned is a good thing. at least it shows people that there is a limit to how far their behaviour can go before it gets too much.
