Provisional banned users thread

While you deliberate over the banning transparency issues and whatnot I think it would be nice if in the meantime you made a provisional thread, locked it, and updated it with who is getting banned and for how long. Cause you know, you can't really be promising transparency while not even making public who you're banning.

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

Re: Provisional banned users thread

We are reasonably* close to releasing a Banned Users 2.0 and the provisional list might not even beat the real one to release.

Compiling it would take time, and we'd rather spend it on the real deal.







*Note that this is my definition of reasonable.** Your definition--and that of other admins--may vary.

**as if someone who is a JoLa fan has any grasp of what "reasonable" means.


(All kidding aside, we have made a lot of progress and I really do believe we should be able to address this concern).

Re: Provisional banned users thread

Yeah, that's right, especially as long as I've noticed there are bans almost every week lately.

But the reasons of the ban should be also given, I saw that on other forums.

Bans tend to rise and fall with the amount of activity going on in the tennis world, so we'll probably see several more around FO and Wimby, then a decline as we head into the USO and fall.

I know nobody believes me, but honestly, we don't enjoy banning people.
