I had an interesting exchange with nismaratwork too about dreams, where he showed himself to be quite a reasonable chap.
When I saw he had been banned it definitely drew my attention.

Thanks for the explanation.
I still wonder though what the point is of being banned permanently over simply being an inactive member?

Most people are banned as crackpots, or refusing to follow the rules, or both. A very few request a ban to prevent them from posting. Jared and nismar fall into the latter.

Of course, that actually makes a lot of sense!
But wait! That means all our frequent posters are at risk!
Like tiny-tim or micromass, or, god forbid, Evo!

Not Applicable

Well I know that. But what does it mean when placed under someone's username?

And does that mean nismaratwork will never be able to post on PF again?

Well, it's not that Evo never banned me before... I just never requested it

Sorry Evo

I believe it means that they no longer show up on searches, even though you might still stumble on one of their posts

Nismar is not N/A, he requested a permanent ban, so technically, yes, he could come back. I doubt that he will.

If you contact them next time, tell them it's not cool at all.
