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

Re: Infractions

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

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.
