Default Permabanned Members With High Post Counts

Recently I’ve been using the search function a lot especially before posting record reviews because I want to see what’s already been said about the band I’m writing about. Two things I’ve noticed is there are many former members with great taste who no longer post here. And another is I often see people with thousands of posts who with disabled accounts (again often with great taste in music).

Why was there so much banhammering back in the day?

I dunno but banning should be a real last resort imo.

There are guys on here who would have been perma'd in the past (in my time on here).

IMO.

It's kind of hard to say in those cases, since those bans were predicated on specific events and multiple temp bans that often happened widely apart and are difficult to assess years after the fact. The only two I can think of in all my time are Sansa and JWB. JWB was always pushing the limits, and after his, I believe, second ban kind of went all in and clearly didn't give a **** about saying whatever could get him banned. He definitely brought it on himself and never even really posted much about music, so it was clearly a case of banning a troll.

Sansa was a very longtime member who just had a cracked out personality where she would occasionally just lose the plot and go on abusive screeds for a few days or a week or whatever, and sometimes she went hella far. She got a lot of chances, but she just had too many one-offs that she got banned for and finally got that one last ban. She could be a legit contributing member, but to keep her indefinitely would definitely have been a sign that the mods were simply not going to perma ban members with "tenure".

Any good Sansa freakouts you could recommend to look up?

Not really. They were interspersed too far apart for me to look them up and it's been so long that I don't really remember specific events. I know the last was an attack on Roxy basically just for being a conservative, but that was in the shoutbox so it's gone. You'd have to comb through her posts one by one to actually find anything, but I guess if you were dedicated you could check her posts in political threads or anything that might involve feminism. She was RRRREEEEAAAALLLL big on that ****. Too bad you can't cross search for posts made by two members in close proximity, cause I know she despised Trollheart and had at least one really good breakdown about him.

Thumbs up

Enough time has gone to give our banned forumistas a second chance. We all make mistakes.

Anyone agree?

They requested a ban. There's a few who have done that.
