Norm, would you go for this? A $1,000 reinstatement fee and even one wrong move is a ban and no reimbursement?
    It’s the fun part of a forum just before Norm closes it or someone gets banned. The events leading to it is fascinating.

    I guess a tentative reinstatement might be okay. For example, on another website, I created my own website because a woman was being bullied. I created that website so she would have a safe place to post. I was permanently banned for creating my own website and NOT running it through the Admin first. On another website where we were both Members, I explained that I created that website to help out the bullied woman. He said something like,"It's nice that you created that website to help out a bullied woman and not for selfish reasons, but you went about it the wrong way. You should have told me about your website first before linking to it. I'll let you back since you were trying to help someone out." I was let back. So sometimes banned people do deserve a second chance.

    I wouldn't suspend a person for one second for that. Indeed, one user here set up competing sites and posted numerous times that people should go to his site. I didn't even remove the posts, much less sanction the user. Users that have been banned here have committed egregious acts, like threats of violence, months of false criminal accusations and personal attacks, etc.

    What kind of ticked off that particular Admin was that some OTHER Posters got the invite to my website before he did, LMAO! I explained that the website was only like SEVEN hours old and I was going to give him an invite too but was going to give it to him the next day.
