But why leave people in the dark when people are interested? Everytime someone is banned people speculate about it and wonder. Why not just have it available?
I can PM you every time I ban someone if you like. Of course 99% of the time it's a spammer so your inbox will probably fill up pretty fast.

It's not for the mods to go around announcing bannings. You just give them even more attention if you do that.
It's not like they're banned from the whole internet.
I'm sure if it's a regular poster someone will talk to them at some point.

If they want everyone to know, then they'll make that info available.
How do I know if they'll be back? Why not just post it in the member bans thread? Like Randy Marsh: banned for _______ days for _______ reason

Lol..drunken insults...oh yeah it is friday isnt it??..nice!! Naw I get what your saying and like ive stated before drama is interesting in everything its involved in. Look at that crappy show Jersey Shore. As for Marsh he always fired back with vulgarity..he even did somewhat to me when I was trying to help him out as what to not post. Didnt bother me though I found it comical

Actually, I don't mind transparency, but I don't think I'd want to report in a thread to the whole community every time I ban someone. Besides, when explaining why you ban someone, you'd also have to demonstrate how the banned member broke the rules. Often, the banned member's offending posts will be deleted and so reports like that could put the banned user in a worse light than he/she would otherwise be. Hence, perhaps there should be some level of discretion - not the keeping it a secret kind, but perhaps we shouldn't advertise the reasons why when people are banned.

But, if someone sends me a PM asking me why I banned someone, I'm happy to explain with quotations of the offending posts etc. It's only natural members of the community are curious, interested or even offended which is perfectly alright, so don't hesitate to send a PM.

Really!?

Basically it's just like... A lot of members wonder when someone gets banned how long they'll be gone and for what reason. "Why?" doesn't really even matter does it? Curiosity, maybe it's someone who they talk to on here a good bit in certain threads, whatever. I don't see how it's nobody's business when it's all happening on a forum that we are all a part of.
