I haven't been here long, so a little clarification would be appreciated. How is a decision to permaban a member made? Is it a three-strikes (or however many) policy? From what I've seen, there are members who have been tempbanned numerous times, and then when the ban is lifted, they immediately start up with the same shenanigans that got them banned in the first place. At what point do the mods decide that they've given them enough second, third, fourth chances and ban them for good?
Or does tempbanning have less to do with the number of previous bans, and more to do with the severity of the infraction itself?
