What are warnings and bans, and how do I avoid them?

Members who violate the Rules of the Road may be warned or banned. You will receive a notification via email if you are being warned or banned. Before being permanently banned, members will normally receive two warnings and even a temporary ban. There are exceptions to this rule that usually apply to trolls, spammers, and extreme attacks.

As a policy, we do not share or detail explicitly the specific offense when issuing warnings or bans. Doing so jeopardizes the privacy of other members. Every member should acquaint themselves with the Rules of the Road, utilize the Ignore feature when encountering abuse, submit a Report Abuse form instead of engaging with the abuser, and understand that any violation of the Rules of the Road can be met with disciplinary action detailed above even if it is retaliatory to another abusive action.
