I thought it was

It means previously banned poster anyway

Not sure that's a positive thing. PBPs shouldn't really be a thing should they? They have been banned. Adding it to the list is a bit accepting.

I think it's so people know what PBP means

It's not on the acronym list, and it was mentioned in a thread I was on earlier (MNHQ said they were shutting it down as the poster was a suspected PBP). They then shut it down. I had a quick search and found what it means, but should really be in the list if it's going to be used by MNHQ?

But as a newbie looking at the acronym list and seeing 'Previously Banned Poster' it's a bit offputting.

Hi there,
We can certainly feed this back but can imagine it getting much the same response as here, to the effect that it's not that gorgeous a message to be putting out.
