    Banning Members

    How often do you ban members from your forum permanently?



    I often do at codegreen because there are lots of spammers there.

    I don't usually ban members though I will ban automated spammers and people who have no reason to be at the forum other then to cause arguments and be rude.

    I don't have any problems with any of my users so far, but with 10 members how can you? I will delete a member who joins the forum and does not make any posts or very few posts, if they make one post and never come back on for like a month then I will delete them. If i really have a problem with a member then I will most likely ban them, as they should respect everyone, no matter who they are.

    Business forums are a real target for spammers. We sometimes get new members who will sign up and immediately post 10+ ads for mobile phones. I'll give them an immediate permanent ban, on the basis that they are unlikely to ever contribute.

    Depends, if they are bots then ban all the time. But most of the time I don't ban members.

    I think I have only banned one or two people in my life. I am usually lenient when it comes to bans.

    I'll ban people if they are spamming, being dumb, etc.



    Or if they are being plain annoying.
