This board is more laid back then the rules let on, but some rules are more serious than others. Spamming the board with random comments and derailment is a less serious offense than posting a link to a virus that will damage someone's computer for example.
Depending on the severity, you will be warned and your post/thread may even be edited, locked, or deleted. If the behavior continues after a warning, you go through the following steps for every repeat offense.
Step One: Banned for a week.
Step Two: Banned for a month.
Step Three: Permanently banned.
Before any banning occurs, I will be sure to get the other mod's approval to be sure of having a less biased judgment.
KEEP IN MIND VERY SEVERE OFFENSES MAY RESULT IN AN IMMEDIATE BAN WITH NO WARNINGS.
I will never do this unless I have a VERY good reason.
