Is there an official policy on how many times a person can have Permanent Account Bans before they're, you know, permanently banned? I know one guy who just keeps coming back, spewing the same lies and arguments... been permanently banned 3 times that I know of, comes back, let's people know it's still him, and continues to post... When do the mods say "enough is enough?"

Permanent Account Bans
Members who are habitually abusive or otherwise commit repeated or serious T&C violations may be subject to permanent account bans.
In such cases, former members may use the contact form to appeal, but should be aware that permanent bans are never applied without ample cause, and are rarely reversed.

It seems some people keep falling into the same cyclical trap that the elites keep providing for us, so this seems to be the result. Solutions are needed, not conventional partisan arguments. I do not know what else to say but please see through the trap that is so easily handed to us on a 'gold platter'.

I just begin to wonder if we actually hated the conservatives like that or we just hated the Republican party when they were under Bush.

In the same way that you're telling members to show some restraint, I would politely suggest that you consider the same approach in the moderation of heated debates.
A warning first is usually a better option than an outright posting ban, that makes more sense as a second option.
Your site, your rules, I just hate to see someone get the bullet for one stupid post.
