As a rule, we do not discuss the reason for members being banned. On very very rare circumstances has the banning of a member been discussed on the board. In my tenure here (almost 4 years) this has been done exactly once.




Ummm, I can think of 3 just off the top of my head where the ban was openly discussed by staff, admns and members with no problems.

John Lear (exstensivley discussed)
And that guy who said plane lights landing on the other side of a lake were ufos. I cant seem to find the thread.

Wait, do post bans count?

If you go to the banned members profile and click "posts", you can usually see where things went south within the last several posts the person made.

Also, if you see a member sporting a "warn" tag, you can go to the offending post by clicking the "warn" icon below the persons avatar.

Oh, there are ways around an IP ban, but usually the banned unnameables jump right back into the subjects and posts that got them offed in the first place.

I would tell you----
But then I would have to shoot you----
Then I would be banned.


Not worth it.

Mods, Admins, experts alike - I'm wondering what it means when I see this symbol where you would usually see the empty star (for starring a post): ~

Sorry, I know it's tough to see. I will post a larger font of it: ~ does that mean the member has been banned or just suspended or can someone please clarify? Thanks!

Yes, it does mean they are banned.
You will see also that they no longer have an avatar, or a working mini-profile.

E.g. www.abovetopsecret.com...

Good to know, thanks for explaining this to me. I'm now a bit saddened to learn one of the members I was a fan of has been banned... guess that's just part of ATS. Thank you DISRAELI

I always thought that there were two types of banning: normal username cancellation, and IP banning; with the former meaning you could come back under a different screen name and IP banning meaning you could not come back at all if you tried to re-register from the same IP address>? You have me thoroughly
now.


I have heard from a friend that sites can set a ban cookie when the banned person logs in for what will be there last time.
This clues in the site admins when the person tries to come back under a different screen name.

Now the person has not only find a new ip address but use a new computer. or wipe there computer. My friend uses this to spot when someone uses a number of different screen names to spam his medical site with fake cure posts.
