This is being posted just for information purposes.

Someone recently asked if there were any statistics related to the temporary or permanent banning of members who do not comply with forum rules. I could not find any records for members who were given temporary bans, and who were since returned to active status. I vaguely recall that that happened twice. But here is a summary of the permanent bans (dating back to the beginning of the present forum format):

In terms of numbers:
? 334 members were banned during 2006.
? 357 members were banned during 2007.
? 78 members were banned during 2008.
? 86 members were banned (thus far) during 2009.
? That makes for a total of 855 permanently banned members.

In terms of the reasons for being banned:
? 535 members were banned for posting spam or advertisements.
? 100 members were banned because they were homeowners or because they clearly had no relationship with the electrical industry.
? 47 members were banned for giving false information during the registration process.
? 26 members were banned for using profane language, for posting inappropriate material, or for insulting other members.
? In 147 cases, the reason for the ban was not available.

In terms of who you don’t want to upset ;):
? 222 members were banned by Bill.
? 185 members were banned by Roger.
? 156 members were banned by Bob (Iwire)
? 102 members were banned by George.
? 96 members were banned by me.
? 11 different moderators were involved in the remainder of the bans.

I don't particularly want to get banned. It's really a lot of fun listening in on some of the conversations - and poking some small holes in the obviously inflated egos:D You know a little prick from a ......:roll:

But I wouldn't mind getting censored more often.:roll:

Is this thread a
  • harrowing persuasion of officious haughtiness? :-?:grin:
  • shop talk of supercilious and unwanted advice or service offered up by past-tense posters? :-?:grin:
  • an overview of ludicrous blunders leading to censure and exit?:-?:grin:
Whatever the point, this is the most unusual thread I've seen in all of the forums I've subscribed to...........but for some reason, I'm interested....:confused::)

We should have a drawing, something like Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery", to see who gets to be next.
