    Okey dokey smokey - wake up this morning and see that somebody dropped the ban hammer on @oktane. Did I miss some delicious cat fight in the night? As much as I disagreed with him, there is definitely somebody on this forum who deserved the hit quite a bit more.

    Even though he seems to be an owner, his endless Tesla bashing was getting old. It occurred to me that he could be an employee of an ICE manufacturer. As for the banning, I predict we will see a new member with very similar posts appearing soon.

    Could be for a number of reasons - members get banned (temporary or permanent) due to repeated warnings, reported private messages that were over the line, etc. Meaning, just looking at posts won't necessarily tell you the whole story.

    In my experience, people usually end up banned for member bashing, not contrary views.

    After wasting $55,000 on a Chevy Tahoe, I spent a lot of time on Tahoe forums bashing GM...
    Seemed the thing to do, given my disappointment.

    Why this subforum (for this post)?

    This is the "Model S" subforum and Oktane is/purports-to-be a Model S owner and was a frequent poster in this forum. Showing an interest in the actual human beings who comprise the forum is normal. It would be stranger if we did not ask questions or point out when a frequent poster suddenly disappears. There are humans behind all these screen names.

    I think that is true of a couple other non-Tesla forums that I frequent, too. But I seem to recall the mods of those forums will not tolerate what is considered repetitious criticism, which at some undefined point moves from criticism to trolling. But the bans on those boards seem to be mostly symbolic as I am quite certain most of those folks resume posting under a new posting name.

    Moved to Site Feedback.

    Most common reason for bans is repeated personal attacks. We start out with a temporary ban. It would eventually become permanent if the member does not change behavior.

    I think his point is this is more suitable for the site feedback section since it has nothing to do with Model S.

    Anyways more than one person got banned recently (and not only from the "negative side") and from the snippiness thread it's obvious why.

    Wow. My day just got real.

    Honestly, I thought he'd mellowed quite a bit recently. He certainly was a foil to the apologists.

    As pointed out earlier, some of these may be temporary bans which hopefully serves to warn to not repeat the behavior.

    A ban log would be a nice feature here.

    I disagree. That would be interpreted as a "shame list". I don't think that's appropriate.

    (Logs do exist... they're just not shared.)
