    Hello, I am very new to BHW, and I'm finding this site really useful.

    One of the things that I noticed while browsing around was that some members, despite having more than a 1000 posts and more than a 1000 thanks, seem to have been banned from the forum. It totally stumps me how someone who has contributed so much to the community could actually get banned. What did they do that was atrocious that it got them banned?

    You could of been here since 2005, have 9999999 posts and 9999999 thanks. Unless you're Admin, if you break the rules too much or just troll around, you are vulnerable to the ban hammer. No one is exempt because of rep.

    Break the rules seriously -> get banned.

    The policy is that we do not comment on that and that it is not allowed to ask about it :)

    being famous, having big edick is no excuse to break rules. BHW is quite tolerant but if you overdo it, you'll get banned, simple as that.

    So... you are telling us that.. You come here... and register a new account just to post this b.s question?

    There is TOS if you don't follow the rullz you are /kicked for life .

    Such topics should be bannable also.

    What is the point of this thread? Go do something worthwhile instead of researching on why users were banned.

    lol, no they are not.

    But it is their forum and their rules. Don't like it, then go use another forum. More tolerant forums inevitably end up with "abuse" of the forum, which may scare off a lot of newcomers to the forum. Whereas BHW is quite welcoming. Partly the reason why it does so well, imo is because of the rules that are enforced.

    how many posts u have how many thanks u have is NOT the measure of a person
    nor is it a measure which you define reputable.
    i have seen some 10 post members with more brains and insightful posts than
    some users with 1000 posts .
    never judge a person by his post count but by his ethics and his actions

    ps - no matter how many posts u have - break the rules they will give you this
