Sometime I see someone that got banned and I'm curious why they got ban. Should Mods add board and name it "Banned Forum Users Temporary/Permanently"

And explains why Users got banned and how long?

Or should it be unknown and if you want to know.. Simply ask that person and its up to him/her if they want to tell you or not?

I'm also quite curious when people are banned but I imagine a ban to be sort of embarrassing. I don't think people would want others to see why they were banned. I sure wouldn't want that if I were banned.

Personally I am actually against any form of indication that a person has been banned as I think of it as public shaming, but this is not my choice to make here.
As for giving a reason for banning someone, I will personally never disclose this except to the banned person in question for the exact reason given above.
If the users decide to share this information with others themselves, it is up to them however.

Just note that most of the cases where a user has been banned either temporary or permanently, one or several warnings have been given to the user beforehand depending on the severity of the violation of the rules.

I feel at least a vague explanation might be useful for transparency. Such as, "Banned until yyyy-mm-dd for Rule 4 violation," on their profile. An official reason should at least be somewhere. Something like that wouldn't be any more publicly shaming than the current system is. It doesn't need to go into details or be posted openly and permanently like in a, "Thread of Shame."

As things stand now, the posts causing bans are usually removed, and no reason for the ban is given, leaving people to wonder, "Why?" Unless you happen to witness the violation before mods arrive, it can leave the subconscious impression that there wasn't due cause for the ban. It doesn't help that the banned user has no incentive not to try reinforcing that impression if asked about it.

I think if you're the one banned, you're told why.

Nobody else really needs to know - and anyway, with some banned users that I shall not name, it's fairly bloody clear why they got banned.

It doesn't need to be public knowledge as to why people got banned. If you feel you need to know just ask the person.

True, heh I recall saying that we shouldn't let any citizens to see public record on local Criminals (Or Even Upstanding Citizen break a law like getting speeding ticket etc). I was working at Court House at that time, and I was surprised anyone can view what record they had once they broke the laws.. Like getting speeding tickets, running the red lights, or domestic abuse (Wife/family abuse).

I thought that they have the right to keep it private.. Just the minor stuff.. I didn't realized anyone that surf the internet can just go to their local court website and type in their Father, brothers, sisters, friends Name.

Than my Boss said to me.. "They shouldn't break the law in first place!"
