    Shouldn't they just be banned???

    I know most of us have made some mistakes regarding the rules, but how stupid do you have to be to get banned?

    It takes more then a rule violation to get baned. Although I agree it is quit annoying to see post like that one.

    I know. I guess that would suck to be banned for one mistake, but I am so sick of the COD idiots. Especially the ones that are that ignorant. You mods must have the patience of saints!

    It's a very rare case that a user gets banned for a single offense (no matter the fail). There have been exceptions; most with an egregious violation when feasible get sent to the Reading Room to give them an opportunity (sometimes this works; other times it... works in different ways --- user violates other site rules like creating a second account which solves the whole issue in the first place).

    If it makes you feel any better, I did make a contribution just now to the cited thread, lol.

    How about if the first offense was something really stupid...Like providing a direct link to pirated material? Not that I've seen that or anything. Just hypothetically speaking.

    It's happened. Many times actually. Usually someone edits the link out or removes the thread altogether, based on the severity of the fail. Then they get a love letter from one of us and possibly some time away from posting.

    So it's still just a RR violation? Anybody that calls you guys too harsh needs to be shot in the crotch! lol

    There are a few things ppl have done to get insta-banned, but I don't want to give anyone any ideas. Some ppl just live to make others as miserable as they are.

    I think we can say (on an innocent level, as I seriously doubt any user reading this would consciously decide to do this), the average insta-ban case involves a commercial spammer. That's about the only example I feel like sharing, lol.
