    On every other forum I frequent, when someone gets permanently banned, not suspended, all traces of them are gone. There's no opportunity to engage or troll. The site is officially rid of their BS.

    OTOH, FH is probably the most lenient and forgiving forum I've seen in terms of cutting slack and giving 2nd, 3rd and 4th chances. So when someone gets Permabanned, they've tried really hard to earn that distinction and it's most often for cause with the approval of most fellow posters, often expressed through alerts.

    So why only here is there still a pulse, however faint, when someone finally gets "deaded?"

    hahaha, or maybe a not-so-subtle reminder of why they were kicked to the curb in the first place?

    I do understand that in principle it's no holds barred abuse in insulting them, their mother, their family, their mental capacity etc, but still.

    It's like an ex wife.. when you're done with them, you want their BS out of your life completely. I've not spoken to mine in over 5 years.

    What I don't understand is that considering all the other fins forum options in which they can continue to troll, some of them truculently keep hanging on by a thread, literally and figuratively.

    All I can say is thank god for the ignore/block feature. It makes the forums a lot more bearable.

    I actually kinda like the pinking feature. It keeps all the chaos confined to one forum that is easily avoided if desired and has some bonus entertainment for masochists like myself.

    Just to annoy you?

    But seriously, what would the point of that be? If someone comes in here and starts posting rude and crude things like porn or something of nature then of course their posts will get deleted along with being banned. But in most cases members who are banned have been banned after a build up of issues, rarely is someone banned soon after becoming a member.

    So because a member was banned after for their most recent behavior, not their earlier behavior. So that means at one time their opinions didn't irritated people and members could debate them without issue. Yes even Junc, because I'm pretty sure that is the reason for this thread, was a contributing member before finally getting banned. So there is no reason to erase their "existence" from the board all together just because their most recent behavior has been bad.

    Whatever you contribute to finheaven for better or worse is property of finheaven, unless that contribution is of copyrighted nature. Because finheaven owns it there is no need to erase it, and erasing posts can delete not just the users post history, but also all interactions with that post, thread... thanks, likes, reputation, no thanks, etc etc. why would we delete all of that history? If someone has an issue with a poster or a posters history... put them on ignore. It would serve the same purpose.

    Well to be fair if you're talking about your new fan club in the Locker he was never permabanned in the first place.

    really? forget the rambling waste of bandwidth general troll douchebaggery.. Doesn't overt racism get you kicked to the curb permanently like it has for some others?

    No actually. You get waterlogged before permanent banishment.

    I think it's ****ing priceless that certain posters get banned to the Depths. It's like catching a poltergeist and keeping it in the room where lost souls go.
