    Once an infraction has expired, shouldn't it be expunged from the user's public record? Otherwise, it basically hasn't expired has it?

    "Expires" in this context means whether an infraction counts towards the ten-point total required for an automatic ban.

    Re: Infractions

    As jtbell explained, whether a particular infraction has expired or not simply determines whether it contributes to your "infraction point total". The record remains to allow us to keep track of repeat offenders and as a reference should the validity of the infraction be called into question. However, please note that your infraction record is not publicly viewable; only you, the mentors and the administrators have the permissions necessary to view your infraction record.
