Should banned accounts display a reason for the ban?
Posted 11/15/13
Nah


You look good in your avatar

Yes though because I'm curious what happened to their account, but I guess it's mostly something that no one will know ~

Yes For I Would Like To Know what NOT to Do Since I Sometimes like Pushing Limits XD and Not To be using it To Ridicule the person but it would make more sense as to why a person has been banned but this is just me .

Yes because at least that way it can be a warning to everyone else about them & what they're like

I have never, ever seen a forum give a reason for a ban in the ten years I've been involved in Internet communities. That's private matters between the administrators and the first party. Just seems like a way to be nosy and gossip if it were to be displayed, to be quite frank.

I personally wouldn't mind that! But then again, Other People's business is their business - not Ours.

I have to agree with most the people on here, I'm a super curious person, but as everyone else said it's none of our business.

If the offending poster's actions did not involve you then there's really no reason for you to know.
But at least if you were one of the people who reported the poster that subsequently got banned, it gives you the satisfaction of someone being punished for something bad they may have done to you. I think that fact makes it more encouraging to participate in feedback regarding user behavior.

I think its a good idea personally, then the troll gets fed more. Full disclosure works both ways, y'know. Partial disclosure, on the other hand, if it directly concerns the parties involved sounds like a good deal. Then that party can tell their friends, and it will feed the rumour mill and enevitably start an urban legend, or mythos if you will. Even better for all involved. The victims get recompensation, and the trolls become immortalised. Win-win.

I always felt like it was no one else's business, and should not be displayed. Now, as a mod, I feel even more strongly about this. You're always welcome to ask someone why they were banned, but that's a very specific matter in many cases, and has nothing to do with their posts in unrelated topics that still show the BANNED message.

If you ask someone why they were banned, they will also be able to tell you what mod banned them, if you're interested in "the other side" you can ask that mod in turn. And if the formerly banned person won't tell you who banned them or why.. that tells you something as well, I suppose.

In many cases it's simply too complicated to list the ban reason in a short line like BANNED. "Well, this user attacked others in this thread, posted porn over there, sent highly inappropriate PMs to a number of users, and linked to illegal websites in another section" doesn't fit in the avatar area very well... but it's why that user may have earned themselves a lengthy ban.

There's also the fear of reprisals. "I know you reported me for XYZ, therefore I'm going to look over every single thing you do to find any minor infraction that I might get you banned over!" would be a terrible thing to have going on.
