At present, the forum policy is that no individual should ever be banned but suspended accounts are required to agree to the forum guidelines before rejoining the Forum. Suspension is offered as a "cooling off" period for the individual and forum as whole. A unwillingness to respond to administration requests will be taken as a refusal and cause an automatic suspension. If the member does not respond specifically to an administration request, their membership will remain suspended infinitely.
All members are afforded personal anonymity but are required to identify which usergroup (or non-group) they belong to. Members will never be required and are advised not disclose their personal identity to any other member, moderator or bulletin board system operator unless they so wish themselves.
The forum membership process does require individuals to state which group they wish to join. Failure to do so will mean membership is refused or suspended. Requiring members to respond is used as a way to filter out spammer's accounts and general forum trolls.
If members wish to comment, criticize or appeal against person or third party suspensions etc; please do below, or by email to; firstname.lastname@example.org. The following log documents all user management in no particular order of either severity nor chronology.
