Just curious to see what percentage of you lot have been banned from xkcd.


Also i've never been banned, but I could join funky new groups if I did get myself banned, is it worth it?

Once, from a IRC channel. It was a clipboard dump, what I accidentally dumped was against channel rules. I was banned for a day because it was accidental.
And than OOTD bans me daily from the Mafia channel :P

Have been banned a few times from chat channels. Mostly by auto-anti-flood-bots when I was talking to someone and copy-pasted a sentence a few hundred thousand times...

Banned from this site?
I can hear you speaking but your words aren't clear.

I've never been banned. I'm not noticeable enough.

I was permanently banned from the #hugs irc channel (I don't remember which network) immediately upon joining it and declaring I wanted a hug. :( I bet they couldn't imagine I actually use the Hugs Haskell compiler, which is what I later found out the channel was actually about.

From here. Never.
From other sites...
3 so far (well, 2, but one was for multiaccounting because of a suspension on my main ;))

There are those who are banned from specific areas of the forums. I believe all that really means is that they are no longer allowed to post there, but can continue reading. Or maybe not, I'm not 100% sure. Regardless, it's not worth it.

If you're banned from the whole forums, usually it's for a specific period of time, usually a day to a week. Attempting to circumvent that gets you a Permanent Ban.

There is no coming back from a Permanent Ban. Circumventing it just gets you banned whenever we catch it. And we will, eventually.

I highly recommend it.

Now, if you're talking about the irc channel, #xkcd... beats me. I don't go there. Them folks are scary.

I was going to vote "yes", and explain that that was only from S/FI (before we had this fancy new group for it), but then I remembered that I posted in Belial's "Post here and get banned" thread a while back, and was served with a week's worth of not being able to visit FaiD.

Surely you would still be able to read forums from which you are banned if you just don't log in? Or is it IP-based? Or is that classified information?

Well, there are certain parts of the fora that can only be seen if you're logged in. By banning people from those places, I expect they'd be unable to read posts.

Nope, but about 8 times from the PlaystationUnderground forums...it was almost like a forum of YouTube comments and I went berserk on people's stupidity.

Now I'm permanently banned, but I did manage to rack up about 12,000 posts over a few years :P

That's why I'm assuming you can still read those parts, just not post in them. Section-bans are via username. Circumventing that gets you banned in the bad way, which is done in a variety of methods.

The only time I've been banned here was the Post and get banned thread, and I had the F1RST P0ST!!!

I got perma-banned from the WoW EU forums about a year ago for posting the browser-hijack rickroll link, which another person had previously masked behind a separate URL to suggest it just hosted some screenshots of upcoming content. Although, there were 2/3 items of temp. suspension leading up to it for misconduct. Sometimes you just had to fight fire with fire, and it seems the mods there only like the normal red fire, not the retaliatory, intellectually-superior, sarcasm-rife retorts I pulled off.
Not been banned here yet, and no that's not an invitation.

Every few weeks I get an urge to play that game. So far, I have resisted.

Never been banned from anywhere, by the way.

I am 95% sure that it is possible to ban someone from a certain forum in the sense of can't-even-see-it, and that this has been done here at least once. I think the normal bans are called "Banned from [forum]" and the can't-even-see-it bans are called "Bye Bye [forum]." But yeah, if you weren't logged in, that wouldn't matter, would it? Unless the ban was for LSR, Dear SB, or some group that included those.

Voted no.

From here, no. But I've been at a few forums that turned to crap, and got myself banned as I left for shits and giggles. I also once got banned a number of years ago from some silly forum for bypassing the swear filters and maximum topic length. :P That was fun.

I've also been members of forums when people hacked in and banned everyone, but I guess that doesn't count.

Guess who was just banned from FaiD!
Me! I was!
And why?
Because Jack Saladin is a douche and told me he supports me committing suicide!!
And I told him to shut up, kid!

Seriosuly, why the heck was he a mod.

I got banned for a week because I asked for it. Probably come close a few other times.

Hey! That's happened to me. The LSR forum has just dissappeared. I voted no, but maybe I have? Was I banned before?

Yup.

Time to write up an elaborate post to shake the 'Post and Be Banned'. I'm not scared. This should play out interestingly.

Jack Saladin is a Douche. Therefore, Jack Saladin is the king of FaiD. QED.

Because he provided a good perspective. It is too bad he no longer is willing to fill that role.

I've never been banned, but I don't post a lot, so that could explain it.

And Belial's thread is made of pure temptation. I. . .must. . .resist. . . </Captain Kirk>

I have been warned by the XKCD mods more than once (for good reasons), but never banned. But I did get banned from a Mac forum once because one of the mods said there never has been any malicious software of any kind made for Mac OS, ever, and I said that was not true, and the next day I logged in to a message saying "You were banned for calling Shweb a liar."

I've kept my record clean on xkcd, but I was banned from the IGN forums a few times when I was like, 11 or 12.

I got kicked from an IRC channel once, when I was younger... I thought I was being clever, but looking back I can see I was just obnoxious. One of the admins opped himself as a warning... I reacted like it was directed at me, and begged for mercy as a joke... little realising that it was directed at me. So now I still think I'm being clever, and the op thinks I've been warned and I'm ignoring it. The obvious happens.

I don't recall ever being banned from anywhere though. Yet. But tomorrow is another day!

[edit]
Oh yeah, I also got kicked from #dsdev for arguing with the douchemonger of a mod there about something rather trivial... there's a good reason I stopped idling in that channel a while ago.

I guess I've never managed to be enough of an asshole. I've insulted people and/or used vulgar language but never gotten so much as a warning. I guess its because it's always pretty clear I'm not a troll or trying to make trouble?

I got warned by two different mods that my posts in serious business weren't up to par so I banned myself from that forum. Now off to post in belial's thread.
