    Banning Offenses

    People can be banned for various reasons, but some are a lot more common than others. The following always result in immediate banning. Other things are decided on a case by case basis.

    - Support of Nazism
    - Holocaust denial
    - Advocating genocide
    - Advocating mass murder
    - Threats to inflict "real life" harm, including lawsuits, on other members
    - Use of an anonymizing proxy, including and especially Tor
    - "Spam" trolling (posting many deliberate trolls all over the place)
    - Trolling immediately after signing up

    The last one deserves a little explanation. When established members misbehave, they generally get warned or kicked first, and occasionally posting something "crackpot" isn't an offense. However, when the first thing a person does after signing up to the board is troll, flame, or act like a crackpot, I figure they're a lost cause and just ban them right away.

    This thread is for discussing kicks and bans that have already happened. Don't be a circling vulture by discussing people you think are about to be banned.

    Is there a list of things which are generally frowned upon but not instantly banworthy like the ban on shock news.

    It's here!

    Also, it seems I have posted in the very first page of a HoI. I feel so proud.

    Psh. I bet we could've got it by the second post if people didn't slack so much.

    Of course, being AH.com it'll inevitably fill itself again...

    BTW: Posting Shock News isn't an instantly Bannable Offense. Threads are locked and repeated offenses may result in Mod Action.

    And may the rule of Hall VI be longer than Hall V.

    The humour in this thread should be related to Justin Bieber jokes, considering his recent altercation :p

    Man, I have a craving for Irish Cappuccino today...

    *AHEM*

    Any recent infamy going on around here? I hadn't noticed all that much happening. Then again, I've been kind of absorbed in my last two weeks of doing-nothing-ness.

    Perhaps the last noteworthy ban of the HoI V.
