Re: What is happening here?
I want you all to understand why the moderators are taking the actions they are. Permanently banned members are not allowed to sign on under a new alias and post in any forum for any reason. You only get two user name chances in accordance with the rules of this site. Those rules are posted for all to see here: viewtopic.php?f=85&t=46628
An excerpt of the rules are shown here:
One of the quirks of the site mechanics is that once a user is banned they cannot read their PMs. The moderators issue all warnings by PM. If a member has used up all their warnings and commits a further rule violation that causes them to be banned there will be no PM generated. This is because there will be no way for the member to read the PM. We have had members come back under a new user name and ask us by PM what has happened. We have always been responsive to those inquiries.
If a user comes back under a new user name and behaves within the rules there are no issues. There are members here now that have done that. If however, they come back and immediately make a large number of posts which violate the rules it is likely that they will use up their two remaining "warning" chances before an official warning has even had a chance to be given. In that case a permanent ban can come without warning.
RainbowJude has already used up his chances. That is why all of RainbowJude's new posts will always be deleted under whichever alias he decides to use.
Normally this would not be disclosed publicly, however in this case it seems appropriate.
