    It's not in any way chilling.

    An admin or moderator made a decision to ban them because they felt they warranted being banned. I've seen long-term posters banned on other forums. Life goes on.

    Of course life goes on. But at the same time communities degenerate, quality decreases, people flee to other places. It you don't take care of your community things go south quickly.
    I'm sure mods wanted to take care of this community with this ban, but some of us here disagree, and question both the decision and the method.

    I'd be the first to be happy, in that case... but in other places this kind of move is prohibited. It's called £sockpuppeting".

    I had to look that up. Makes sense.

    Having a sock puppet here is likely to get both of your accounts banned. It's against the Terms of Service, listed at the bottom of the page.

    If I had to guess, I'd guess that account is some other user's sockpuppet for joke posting (especially because of the Funny rating on this software encouraging joke posts), not actual ban evasion. (Also, while joke posting sockpuppets are against the rules of most forums, some forums' moderators use their discretion to allow them when they're clearly joke accounts, as the harm created by sockpuppets is usually in people using them in arguments, not for humor.)

    Effective ban evaders will use an account that doesn't appear to have any connection with their former identity - using a pun on your former username is how your account gets found and banned immediately, if you're really ban evading. (I mean, I've seen some very ineffective ban evaders on forums, but they're usually the, um, less mature posters.)

    I started to report this, but I really don't want to lay it at the feet of TMC, given experiences in the recent past. If you're Nathan you're being an asshole, and if you're not Nathan you're being a useless, trolling asshole. In any case I'm ignoring you.

    If ohmman's posts are any indication, Neroden was temporaily banned. We would noticed if Neroden was tempbanned before, right? I am assuming no one would go straight from warnings to permaban - that indeed would be too heavy-handed.

    Depends on the infraction I'd think. If he went nuclear on the mods that might do it. Also obvious trolls and spambots should be instantly vaporized with no second chances.

    Guys, I spoke with one mod one week ago, and he told me he was permanently banned. He has been banned temporarily in these years, but apparently the last actions/messages were too much, and owners (more than mods, from whatI gather) wanted him out.

    If he is permanently banned why does his profile signature not say banned?
    But what amazes me is ... it looks like they deleted ALL his posts?

    His posts are still up though
    neroden
    And click on postings.

    There were many deleted at the end, @GreenT. That might be what you noticed.

    Unfortunately, TMC has a long history of driving the best and brightest contributors away to other forums. Sad really.

    When I click that link, all I see is Tesla Motors Club - Error.
    He is the last person I would have on an Ignore list.

    If by 'TMC', you're also including members who give passive-aggressive responses (or just leave a rating that doesn't fit the post) and/or attack anyone who doesn't agree w them (pro or anti Tesla), I agree.

    :cool:
