Are you still able to watch anime? Send PMs? Are you just banned from the forums or are you not able to access your account? If you have a paid membership, will it be refunded?

Just curious

I don't know for a fact, but I'm pretty sure a standard ban just bans you from posting in the forums and maybe the episode/News comment sections for the period of time you're banned for (a few days to 50 years). I would assume they wouldn't ban you from watching anime/drama since they'd like to keep you as a paying customer (or patronizing the Ad supported streams in my case).

Spammers, real spammers, might be treated differently and their bans might be a tad more harsh (if that's even possible).

Just speculation on my part as I haven't been banned yet. Actually, I've been online since 1989 and I've never seriously been banned from any site, forum, or eating establishment, and it was almost impossible to get banned in the un-Modded USENET forums back in the day.

To be honest I'm quite curious as well. I have never been banned from any websites. I always thought that mods give some sort of a warning first, and then if you get banned your account is deactivated. Maybe the way it's dealt with depends on what the account user has done.

Your account can get deleted. I have left comments on a banned account.

See Site Rules ! Usually if it's borderline you get a warning. But dont post Spam!

It depends. But one thing is always true. Being banned never means you are not able to watch anime (or read manga or watch drama).
