Believe it or not, I have reserved banning to only two groups of people:

1) Spammers

2) MLMers trying to recruit on their first post, including links and descriptions of the compensation plan. This would be MLMers who show no interest in any sort of conversation with our members. They just want to push their plan. I guess it’s another sort of spam, really.

If an MLMer comes in here and tries to post questions or even those pervasive “Have-any-of-you-heard-about…” messages, I lean toward letting their posts in, even if it turns out to be someone promoting an MLM. I do not ban them. I expect many of them to return some day to tell us how right we were (even if they can’t bring themselves to admit how wrong THEY were).

Anyway, 200 banned members PER DAY. I usually ban between 3 and 8 per day. What do you think? Should I be tougher? 😉

Just wanted you to know a little bit about what goes on behind the scenes here.
