So I will happily tell you here.
My banning was because I called someone retarded, several times.
Now that word is used daily without a second thought from the mods.
Times have changed, or the mod pool was refreshed.
Never considered myself as unfortunate, I broke the rule and paid the price, no hard feelings though toward the one who swung the "Ban Hammer."
OK, forgive me, but I am a rookie out here and the question I have is this: if you have been banned (totally) is there a time limit where you can post again, or do you have to change your IP address?

Honestly, no idea on a time limit, I just decided for my own sanity to take a year off.
I don't think you have to change your IP address, many get banned several times a month only to return the next day with a new moniker. My IP address changes every time I log onto the internet. They would have to ban an entire block of IP addresses and that would also ban innocent bystanders that share my same internet provider.

BAN 'EM ... I say.
Teehehehehe
J?K
Tehee, if they are all banned then who will we have to chat with? I would hate for anyone to be banned. If I see something that appears offensive I pull up my big girl panties and turn the page. I try to post in an inoffensive manner, but if I do not I would wish for the person offended to tell me or look the other way. My skin is pretty thick, Tehee. How about yours?

When they ban you or give you a warning do they e-mail you or PM you?

I know someone on another forum had one of my post removed once. I was being a little hateful. But I didn't receive a PM or e-mail about it. Also I noticed it still showed when I logged in even though they removed it from the thread. Why do that? Why not just take it off? What's up with that?

Once I called someone a retard but the someone was the person in a news story. I've also done my fare share of bad words like the F and D words. But maybe I did use @&%# and stuff every time?

Are the Mods on here right now? I mean do they always have a person watching? Or does anyone know if any are registered as regular users during their personal time. Just wondering

I think the way it usually works 3 4 5 people work together to get you banned. Kinda like being voted out?

I hope you won't mind, but I'm going to carry this one over to the Bannable thread.

It's Daisy had quite an interesting story as well.

I do as well. Apparently though unless you have a group reporting it's not
going to happen.
