Occasionally Ian decides to unban former members of AH.com when they explain their actions and attempt to redeem themselves on the forum. This is a select category–far fewer than the Member List or the Hall of Infamy, the Repentant are a select few. This also does not include people banned or kicked at their own request.
The number of repentant dramatically increased in late 2013 for unknown reasons.
