Sometimes people get sent to their rooms rather than thrown out of the house. Sometimes people get second chances, too.
There are ways around even IP bans (which we try to avoid unless someone's using a fixed IP), so there's not much you can do to prevent someone from trying to come back under another username if they're really determined and have nothing better to do than get banned over and over again. You just have to ban them over and over again. Some people are addicted to message boards, some people seem addicted to getting kicked off of them
Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.
