Most of the time people forum banned will say they were banned unfairly/unjustly/no reason. Most of the time they did something that had some contribution to their undoing. This topic concerns the opposite. The unlikely aspect of them getting banned for literally no reason at all whatsoever except the powers that be using their power unwisely.

I mean literally where the banned user did nothing to warrant a ban. The only thing that went wrong was were an admin/mod decided to ban them for no reason just because they felt like it. Their superiors saw what happened and banned the banner(s). As far as the unjustly banned parties, either they got a proper apology on the forum and were unbanned or go the "[apology/no apology here] We know you were banned unjustly. However, we are still going to keep you banned".

I know this is very hard to prove and is very uncommon but that doesn't meant it doesn't happen.

Like I said, the banned users did nothing (not exaggeration but the truth) at all that would even bring the idea of forum banning up. It was just a case of the mod/admin abusing their power.

I clearly have put all the variables and factors in. Now, what are the results. What is a case that you are aware of (made up ones for hypothetical scenarios are allowed) where they truly were innocent.

many years ago (6 years ago from memory) on a forum called kh insider a new admin came along called "the midnighter" ; along with him came alot of changes the community didn't like. Thus there was massive protests on the forum ; alot of users got banned for disagreeing with the changes (and more left because of the changes on their own accord). In atleast one instance the midnighter framed one of his mods for something he lied about and not only demoted her from being a mod but also banned her after she sided with those complaining.

I'm presuming there was something behind the scenes with the midnighter and the former mod considering he framed her (shortly after someone linked to one of his old posts proving the lie "mysteriously" his old posts were removed)

If an admin/mod bans one by accident, those situations don't count. That happens and is understandable. I am talking about those that willingly do if and the harmed parties are innocent of any wrong doing that warranted a ban. MullerCherry, that is the usu. reason. However, there are always going to be those rare instances people do get banned. To say someone never gets banned for literally no reason is foolish.

lol @ this thread.
Seriously, a huge "WTF?!"

Oh yeah. I'm going to go ahead and ban 12 year old little kids for no reason.
Anyone that I catch with an anime character avi.
Well I'm at it I might "accidentally" push the "ban" button, and accidentally push the "confirm" button and accidentally give them the time and date of when the ban will be over. Accidentally of course..

Oh..mi...GHOD! Someone doesn't like doggies?! Ban for opposing my likes!




......

I'm also going to ban Okazu606 for reporting me!

The majority of the bans I've given were for a reason such as: inappropriate avatars (usually hentai), harassment, user requests (for those who've asked to be banned) spamming, stupidity in general, etc. I don't do petty banning and I could care less about the users who feel it was "unjust" and whine like children when I don't kiss up to them.
