You guys know I don't think your banning procedures are fair, but this is ridiculous. Jordan apparently got banned, and he doesn't even know why, for how long, or anything. Didn't you guys at least have the decency to e-mail him or SOMETHING? There definately needs to be some official procedure if you guys are just gonna go around banning each and every person that says something negative about the Williams sisters.

For one, we should ALWAYS have recieved two previous warnings within the past year for offensive posts before getting banned.

Secondly, when we do get banned, it should be YOUR responsibility to e-mail us why and for how long our banishment should last (you shouldn't permanently ban someone right away, but if they come back and STILL post offensive garbage).

Thirdly, there should be a thread in this forum discussing reasons why certain members were banned, so that other posters don't make the same mistakes.

Finally, the official board rules HAVE to be posted in a prominent section of the board for everyone to see if they so choose. Kind of like in Ancient Rome, when the Plebians demanded that the laws be posted in the Forum to prevent Patrician abuse, the posters have a right to always be informed of rules and regulations, because NO ONE can keep every single detail in their head for more than five minutes.

Please do something about this ASAP, because I don't want peopple to just get banned from something they enjoy so much without knowledge and understanding of why, and previous warnings.

Are you the account holder? If you were, and you had an email address in your profile that was actually valid and that you checked regularly, you would have known that we DO send suspension notices and this thread wouldn't exist.

Yes, in fact. And this is exactly the reason we usually delete topics like this.
