Saw "banned" under a member's name

I noticed while looking at some of the posts that a member had "banned" under their name. What does that mean? Are they not allowed to post?

Not allowed - If it's the person I'm thinking of she (I think she) used DC to spam a bunch of us into clicking into a website that was weird. Yea, banned.

You are correct, elaine. When you see "banned" under a member's name, they have lost the privilege of participating on our site because they violated DC's Community Policies.

There are different levels of banning. Sometimes we ban people for a week or so and sometimes it is longer or permanent. If you see banned under someones name then that means that currently they can not post.

There might be more, I don't know. But the only two I've seen banned are Keltin and Fluffygrrl (I think I spelled that one right).

Honesty is not what PO's anyone bowlingshirt. It was the disregard for posted rules that was the issue.

Just curious?????? What's the number one reason someone gets banned? Is it the posting of spam? I know that the mods are vigilant on protecting members from that as soon as they know.
