I've been browsing through the forums on Crunchy a little more frequently now, and more often than not there's a comment from a banned user. (Posted prior to them being banned, obviously.) So my question is, how and why are such a large amount of users getting banned? I have noticed that if I am familiar with the user a little bit, then they're usually the ones to post more controversial things, but never really stuff that could get you banned from Crunchy... I dunno, I'm not even really sure what gets you banned here, other than posting stuff that is most definitely not acceptable. Right now, though, my definition of what's definitely not acceptable on here only contains completely uncensored nudity and harassment of other users. Those can't be the only things... right?

Controversial topics aren't so bad, but sometimes those guys get passive aggressive. They're start becoming more and more condescending as they reach further in discussion because they don't agree with other people's beliefs and values. I don't get what's the point in asking people's thoughts if all you're gonna do is get pissed off.

Same reason as any banned user. Broke the rules... (keep in mind those are rather vague and subjective)

Strictly speaking, you'd want to follow these: http://www.crunchyroll.com/library/Site_Rules . Granted, their vague and broad, so I will give my won two cents.

To the best of my knowledge, the ban is itself a result of an extremely abrasive comment that, in addition to warranting the content creator a ban, also was deleted due to its abrasiveness. I'd imagine the fact they are commenting on controversial topics is itself a correlation and not causation--people tend to get heated when discussing their own opinions. My guess is, so long as you don't come off as you're flamebaiting, you're probably be fine. That said, I'm not a moderator here, so you'd probably want to take my speculation with a grain of salt.

Abusive comments.
Harassment.
Racist/homophobic/anti-semitic/etc comments and slurs.
18+ content.
Trolling.
Flame-baiting.
Phishing.
Creating multiple accounts.

There are many reasons one could be banned.

I got banned once for being a proper rebel and gangster and double posting.

I remember reading something where you can ask an admin to ban you, so you don't get distracted when you have an upcoming exam or something.

Well, its probably for a multitude of reasons

Creating new threads every few minutes (really shitty ones at that) while some of them are pretty funny, it does get annoying after a while.

Being an outright asshole

Making threads so you can bitch about how much you hate everyone and everything and how all humans are horrible people. (there was one guy who would do this, but I haven't seen him in a while)

or posting threads that really would better suit /pol/ than they would crunchyroll.

ikr? don't you just get curious about why people are banned?

would like to see the reasons why they're banned, and the comments/posts that lead to the banning.

They broke the taboo of not being allowed to watch [one of approximately two hentai anime that folks love to mention].

This hidden sub forum often sheds a lot of light on what's going on in regard to people being banned: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumcategory-6/closed I periodically peruse the closed threads for that reason, it can be sort of entertaining.

Crunchyroll is actually extremely tolerant of trolls. Way more so than I think they should be. Sometimes you just know someone is fishing for attention/a ban (I won't name any names but I'm sure most of you know of at least a couple people who fit that description) and I'm often surprised at how many weeks or even months of warnings it takes to finally have action taken on them.

So yeah. I don't think Crunchyroll is taking a harder line on bans lately. I think there are just more trolls now who like to toe the line and see how far they can go.

They fought the law.

And the law won.

I recently received this private message from someone on CR:



Went to check their profile and found...



Banned until 3015. So maybe an influx of spammers and trolls now that some schools are on break. Could also be people that were previously banned making new accounts to troll and what not...

Anger is an energy.
