I do find the whole 'why were they banned' scenario akin to a classroom full of kids at times all pointing at the naughty person and getting off on it.

Not always but why people get banned should remain within the mods lounge most of the time unless they have done something that has seriously impinged upon the forum as a whole and dragging peoples names up whilst they are not around to defend themselves is a little unfair.

There's nothing more annoying and time wasting as having to explain to another curious member why someone gets banned.
There is no reason not to have every faith in the mods here. Decisions aren't made lightly.
When a decision is made you can guarantee it's for a very good reason, without question.
Believe me, there are enough mods here to call out another if they think another mod is out of line.

Nobody is more in touch with what goes on in the forum than a moderator. It goes with the territory.

RT, that's not the point of me mentioning transparency.

I wasn't trying to say that the mods aren't doing a good job. I'm sure there is like a little council or w/e that goes on behind the scenes and several mods agree and maybe a few might disagree with the ban but it's not taken lightly at all.

If a mod finds it annoying to explain to a member why someone was banned then they can just say piss off.

There are other mods that would be more willing to talk about it as long as it doesn't discuss every single detail of it and it's handled in a diplomatic manner.

Majority of the time when people want to know why they got banned it's more to hear about the time length of the ban so that they know when a favorite poster of theirs will be back.

Yes some like to know what they did to receive it but that's completely up to the parties involved and certain mods discretion if they'd like to share that information or not.

In that case then, the issue was addressed immediately, as requested, in an appropriate fashion.

Last night I only read this page. Namely, jackhammer's post and my remarks were aimed at no one in particular.

Why doesn't someone make a thread/post/feature that shows members that are currently banned, the length of the ban, and the reasoning behind it?

Call it the "Penalty Box" and make it a sticky.

Why?

It just gives them more attention & notoriety, which is what most of them want.
The quieter they're dispatched from the forum with the minimum of fuss the better.

Yeah, I will never agree to such a thing.

I am happy to answer you as to exactly when someone will be back, which is really all you need to know most of the time.
