@SHaines, recently some posters got banned who I had gotten used to - and I did not see why or, more important, how long they are banned. I can understand you do not want to get into lengthy discussions about whether a ban is deserved or not, but I do find this sad, because this forum is not like reddit, where it does not really matter who takes part in the conversation. It's a "community", and personally I would like to know about the bans. If you don't want to give the reason publicly (although I don't really understand that, after all the post for which someone was banned was public in the first place - maybe it's because it's more work for the moderators, which I would in turn understand) - anyway, in that case, maybe you could put a time under the "banned"- banner? Like "Banned for two weeks". That wouldn't leave me wondering if someone will ever come back.
