    Guys:

    I'm browsing through some old posts so that I can learn a few alternative IM methods, and I'm noticing A LOT of members that are banned. These are not your 1-time-post members. These guys have 300+ posts and a high reputation?

    I know there are ways for this to happen, but its odd that someone would let this happen on an account that they worked at for so long.

    Oh well... I hope I never to anything to cause these actions...

    Yes, I got banned for a week or two once and it was my own fault. I did not follow the rules. Keep your nose clean and you'll be okay.

    Hmm. Part of me thinks that people would create a fake account for something like this but I guess having an established account helps with the reputation of the product.

    I do not plan on being in a position where I'll be banned but its amazing how many have put them selves there.

    ... Times are tough I guess. I'm sure it was a good idea at the time but BHW does a pretty good job at what they allow and where.

    Revisions could always be made. Maybe a revision should be that there is a Revision board.

    BHW is just a bit strict, as far as the rules go. If you break one you're usually banned, doesn't matter if you have been here for 5 years or 5 days.
