I've noticed while surfing through threads that some members have a rasied line (strikethrough) in their name. Does this mean that they are blocked (banned from server)? Everything else makes sense, like the colors coresponding to importence of site.

I believe that denotes a user who is no longer registered, but whose posts are still saved.

When boulderhead moved back to the jungle, he requested that his account be made inactive.

As long as the line remains BENEATH your name, you're momentarily safe, though!
