Reasons People Get Banned from this Site
We are trying to build an online community, and that community requires comity and courtesy. People will get their points across with much more force if they are logical as well as polite as opposed to illogical and irate.
Anger doesn't sell a point. Logic and respect of others are more effective.
-Hate speech-- in comments, diaries or other content. No second chance. Immediate banning.
Most of the people who are banned from this site have been members for a short time, often one day. They come in, think they can get nasty and leave. But consider this-- being banned on this site is recorded. You are banned by your IP address and email, not only from this site, but from all the sites in the populum.com system. That system is growing. Do you really want to risk not being able to access other sites as well?
