Whooooooo! Banned! I'm scared! (that wans't sarcasm, BTW!)
Bertuzzi's been banned! Now I'm getting scared! This proves to me that it is possible to get banned, I almost did in the first week I joined! Honestly, when I say I'm scared, I'm not meaning it sarcasticly. Honest!
Whoa, that's troubling, with a few exceptions.
Why did you almost get banned?
Is it alright to be discuusing this (my instincts say no, but we've done worse )?
There are also people who go to jail, doesn't mean everyone has to go to jail. If you were to make flamebait, and trash Toon Zone, then you are banned. He wanted to get banned, he even wrote it in his title before actually being banned.
I'm not sure about the entire story behind Bertuzzi's banning, but if you have any questions or worries about a mod's decision, you should contact them privately, rather than post about it on the boards.
There's no need to be overly worried about being banned. As long as you follow the Rules, you should be OK. For the most part, the Rules are just common sense. And even if you do slip up, the mods usually send you a warning, to see if you'll learn from your mistakes.
In most cases, you're fine, unless you make it blatantly obvious that you're just here to ignore the Rules and annoy everyone else.
