Right. Since the other attempts at starting such a thread all got derailed beyond recognition, and there's starting to be a real need to get this written down in one place, let's try this one last time.

Let's try to keep the chat to a minimum in this thread.

To recap:

projectorion and sock wayne_smith banned for repeated offenses (http://www.bautforum.com/showpost.php?p=544913&postcount=17).

Zarkov for violating (http://www.bautforum.com/showpost.php?p=552214&postcount=3) the "be nice" rule.

We don't remove members, since that's how we keep them banned. But we will remove all evidence of SPAM posts, since all they want is for people to see whatever it is they're advertising.

Perfect. But why can't I find superthusnap in the member's list?

And a new one: Zarkov. I believe for not being nice.

- Publicly criticizing a member of the boards here (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?t=36788) while providing no substantiation of her claims.

Note these portions of the rules:

From Rule 2:



Attack the ideas, not the person(s) presenting them. If you've got concerns with what someone is saying, feel free dismantle their arguments, but do not resort to ad hominem or personal attacks. Be mindful and respectful of others' feelings. If you feel that someone has crossed the line and insulted you, please contact one of the moderators via private message or e-mail. Don't write scathing posts in the forum to try and humiliate people publicly.


And Rule 17:



If you disagree with a moderator action, then PM or email the moderator, a different moderator, or an administrator. We will review the case and take action as needed.


- For apparently uttering a threat against another member of the boards here (http://www.bautforum.com/showpost.php?p=647643&postcount=51).

Natural-Philosopher suspended for one month for excessive political diatribe. He/she opened an ad hom laden thread in General Science on a global warming topic. The one month suspension would have been shorter for most members, but NP frequently takes long breaks between posts, and so this suspension is made long enough for him/her to notice that a suspension has been issued.

post-edit: I see that ToSeek has banned him for life for the same offense. I agree with ToSeek. NP is now banned for life.

Ha, I got there first! But, seven day ban either way.

It's interesting that these last two incidents - Coldcreation and Noclevername - drew the attention of more than one Mod, but each Mod had the same reaction.

Xylophobe, Crosscountry banned 7 days each for blatant pornographic posting, a Rule #3 violation, and one which will not be tolerated on a board frequented by children.

Edit: Upon further reflection, I feel I over-reacted to the situation. While a banning was in order, in hindsight it clearly does not warrant a 7 day banning. Ban reduced to 24 hours, with time served. My apologies to both Xylophobe and Crosscountry for letting my personal taste influence the decision. Note: this revision was made without prompt or complaint that I am aware of.

Sam5 basically hijacked another Member's Q&A thread and used it to discuss his own ATM ideas. Both of these are violations of the BAUT rules. He also ignored my post telling him to stop.

I have split the posts from the Q&A thread into a new thread in ATM.

Sam5 is banned for 3 days starting yesterday, 4/18.
