THAT is more than fair! The Mods can't scrutinize each contribution! It IS up to other poets to report. My question is, why is the offender only "banned" and not "terminated"? Does a leopard change its spots?
We have to enact a ban first to be able to set up for an account suspension. The website configuration doesn't give the terminate option until a ban is in place.
People can redeem themselves -- if God, himself, can give second chances, then shouldn't we humans, try the same? Yeah, there does come a point when chances run out, if the person(s) in question refuse to smarten up, but at least we did the honorable thing on our part, by extending an olive branch and it can't be said that we/us are guilty of acting like thugs on a power trip with the delete button.
To address the issue of multiple bans and why it seems like sometimes it just goes in a cycle with no resolution: there are 5 mods here, all in different time zones around the world, and it sometimes happens that if a ban expires, another mod logs in after that, sees a problem & sets a ban which ends up as a re-ban, for not seeing the original one because it drops off the list. We usually communicate it to each other when one of us takes an action , but occasionally things fall through the cracks.
