If someone is banned, they are TOLD that they are banned, right?

Not about anyone in particular.

Just a request for info.

If I were to be banned, would I receive an email saying "you have been banned because..." (with actual specific info) and perhaps an indication of whether teh ban was permanent or temporary?

Or would I simply not be able to log in one day?

Not that I expect to be banned any time soon, of course smile

Haven't a clue, but interested.

From anecdotal evidence, I believe it is the second option but welcome clarification.

I feel there should be something like this

oh there was a now-vanished thread about this very subject this morning from someone who appeared to have been banned with no explanation (that poster had posted some pretty awf things and had heaps of deletions recently though)

TrillianAstra Thu 15-Sep-11 20:13:23

I know there was Woof. Which is why I wondered. But please don't make this into a thread about that or else it'll get deleted instead of answered.

WoofToYouTooLady Thu 15-Sep-11 20:14:43

yes, I understand

TrillianAstra Thu 15-Sep-11 20:15:24

Thanks smile

I'd imagine they'd be emailed. I'm guessing. Maybe it depends on the person with their finger on the red button at the time - if it's a "more in sorrow than in anger" banning, they might email. If it's a "you've made our lives a living hell for months and this banning is the highlight of our week" banning, they might not bother.

TrillianAstra Thu 15-Sep-11 20:29:39

A case of "you know what you've done" perhaps?

ShowMeTheMonet Thu 15-Sep-11 20:32:12

I think if they've been warned that if they do it agin then a ban will happen then it's tough tits, no email. Maybe they also flick them the V's as well grin

I have GOT to stop posting this as I'm sure I am annoying folk who haven't watched The West Wing but
"the Secret Service doesn't comment on procedure."

Oh Olivia. Stop with the references to West Wing. Some of us haven't ever watched it, you know!


Go on, tell us the answer...

Tortington Thu 15-Sep-11 22:53:26

yes on the occasion i was banned i just couldn't log on. i had to ask why

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 15-Sep-11 23:15:36


Olivia - do you call Justine POTUS? grin

No. By her Secret Service name Flamingo of course.
BIWI - get the box set. I implore you. Fashions are dated but it's GREAT telly.

Fimbo Thu 15-Sep-11 23:19:58

Grrrrrr my dh is a West Wing freak. Yes a blooming freak, he is watching the box set on repeat loop as I type. Freak, did I say that. I don't get it at all. Only watched it about once to see Rizzo from Grease.

bibbitybobbityhat Thu 15-Sep-11 23:22:27

Ooooo, never knew you were banned Custy. Was it back in t'dark ages or more recent like?

BecauseImWorthIt Thu 15-Sep-11 23:25:18

Gah. No time. DH always has bloody sport on. I have a boxed set of Mad Men to watch, and we have recorded endless series on the Virgin box. Never any time to see them.

<plots dastardly plot to see off DH>

<hard stare>

I think you'll find Flamingo is my secret service name.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 15-Sep-11 23:36:04



<hard stare>

I think you'll find Flamingo is my secret service name.

Yes but Justine doesn't suit "eagle" grin

I'm sure that justabout was talking about this on a thread once and she said that when she tried to log in she got the message "forbidden" grin

<wonders if it's possible to be banned because Olivia wants my username>
