    I'm not asking because I intend to test the threshold in anyway. I'm much more of a lurker of the Men's Style section.

    As I go through older posts, I occasionally notice some members (even those with high post counts) have been banned. In some cases, their comments to make them appear to be a bit of a twat (in which case, I can extrapolate and assume some extreme twatness led them to be banned), but in other cases, they seem reasonable (with an admittedly small sample of a few posts, so...)

    Yeah, what do some people do to get banned on this forum?

    I actually would. I was sort of disappointed in the lack of informative responses. Just like a few examples would be really cool. I've not been active on a forum since...well...ever...and trying to get a feel for this place.

    Again...as a fairly conservative person, I don't plan on pushing any boundaries.

    If you had balls you'd create a memorial thread to all banned members with links or explanations to why they were cast off.

    People are banned for being assholes, typically repeatedly.

    There are several behaviors that will get you an automatic timeout. Example: posting nudity (no nips, no bush, no franks, no beans). These sorts of infractions result in 1 to 2 week timeouts, i.e. temporary bans. If you were to cross this line repeatedly in a fashion that made it clear you were just being an annoying dick, you could get a permanent ban.

    Racism is the other big no-no around here. If you start calling someone out for being a jew, expect a ban. Depending on the severity of the infraction, you might get only a timeout, but fuck that up twice, and you should probably start focus grouping new handles.

    In other cases, the bans are more subjective. There was a gentleman some time ago who had strong opinions on clothing, so strong that he quite vilified several other members and generally became a scourge. He could not play nicely in the sandbox, and finally was thrown out. Another gentleman, who now posts under a different name, trolled many people, including mods, and eventually they got tired of his act. His new incarnation is more respectful.

    Spammers are also banned, but in most cases they are instantly banned and their posts are deleted, so you won't see their legacy posts hanging around.

    The general rule is that SF is like a bar. We take all comers, but at a certain point, if you're enough of a dick, you're going to get thrown out. Act like a dick to the bartenders (moderators), and you may find yourself on your ass in the street on an even quicker trigger.

    Most will note that moderation here is pretty fair. If anything, the complaint is that moderators are too slow to pull the trigger.

    So, with kindness, please don't be a jerk.

    I'll add the following:

    Sometimes, the posts you read may seem innocuous enough - that can often be the case; that's how you'd get to a high post count before being deleted. But every once in a while somebody just loses their shit and has a meltdown, and buh-bye. They can be a good member for a long time and then just break. It happens. So what you're seeing may be posts from before they crossed the line that resulted in a ban.

    Pro tip: You can generally see a person's most recent posts by clicking on their name and selecting "All Posts." This shows posts in reverse chronological order. Typically, the posts that get someone banned are amongst their very last, so you may see some of the leadup. The weakness to this method is that sometimes the ban-worthy post, for example if it's a racist post, may have been deleted entirely and you cannot see it. And in some cases entire threads have been squirreled.

    We should ban the people who post those "I'm leaving the forum forever" posts.
