Members may be banned from our community due to violation of our community rules or violation of our Terms of Service. While we do reserve the right to revoke your membership at any time, it's actually quite difficult to get banned. When a member violates a rule, they receive a three point warning. When a member accumulates ten points they will receive a three month vacation from the community. If, upon their return, they continue to violate rules and make it to fifteen points, they'll be banned for six months. If, after all this, the user still doesn't get it, and somehow manages to collect twenty points, he or she will become a member of the exclusive 'banned for life' club. Warning points do not expire, and once you're banned it is very difficult to regain your membership. To put into perspective just how lenient we are, to make it to the first level one has to violate our rules four times. For a lifetime ban that number jumps to seven. However, please keep in mind, if we see you exhibiting a blatant disregard for our rules and deem you unlikely to change we will bypass this and revoke your membership.
