    Nope. It doesn't change anything. The comment on the movie was deemed enough with the other stuff, whatever that is to warrant a temp ban in the mod, or mods opinion.

    And its just childish punishing people for comments like that.

    The answer is, you aren't informed you're banned (or, in my case, a fellow SG'er IM'd me to tell me). You find out when you visit the site. That way, the "build up" serves as notice enough, so no further action need be taken by the mods.

    the mods also do not inform you if it is a temp or perm ban and for how long, they also do not tell you exactly what got you banned

    such was the case with me

    Kip banned me but did not inform me i was banned, did not inform me WHY i was banned, and did not let me know if it was perm or temp

    i had to go straight to Ken to find out why i was banned

    i do not like this lack of communication on the mods part

    If this has been happening, then yes, it should be a cause for concern. The moderators should make it a priority to communicate effectively, and we will have a discussion about this.
    Thanks John, you've always done a great job though

    If you're doing 95 mph in a 35 mph zone, and a cop pulls you over...comon, you really going to expect him to tell you WHY you're getting a ticket for reckless driving?

    Add to that...especially if you've gotten several pink slip warnings and verbal warnings from speeding down the same road over the past couple of weeks?

    There's always at least several PM's and discussions, the person chooses to ignore them and repeats the action, then gets banned, shouldn't be any question as to why the ban came about.

    Well, for the record. I never got a pm. I got banned by downhill for picking on Bouncer.

    (sorry)
