As you will all have noticed, there have been a few members banned in somewhat controversial circumstances in the past couple of months – Rover, Dirty Harry, Navillus04 and Alana the specific members I can recall.
Every time it happens, there is a thread started looking for an explanation, and E-I managers and Moderators are often slated by members who don’t know the full story, and that often adds fuel to the fire.
Would it be possible to set up a location on the board, as a sticky thread, for an explanation by management as to why any member has been banned and, if said member denies the infraction, their rebuttal should be posted with it? Obviously, it would be best if no other members were allowed to post on this thread, so that the thread remains solely for information purposes.
At least then, when people want to discuss the pros and cons of a ban, they are more aware of the facts when they do so.
