While we are on the subject, why do you guys (mods) have a policy of "3 warnings" before a ban?
First I've heard about it.
To get banned, one has to violate the rules, mainly SPAM or excessive flaming.
At least with three strikes, you get a chance to fix the problem.
I canot ban anyone, but I can recommend someone to be banned. However, this is not done unless there is a real reason for it. And the majority of these are 1-post spammers.
Basically, keep your nose clean, and you'll have no worries.
