    If the member is banned, how come s/he can still post? Kinda defeats the purpose, no?

    In "I ain't no birther" thread:
    #21 (permalink) Today, 04:29 PM
    PubliusInfinitum
    Banned
    Member #11706

    He wasn't "banned" earlier today because his book-length signature still appeared. And that reminds me: Wasn't there a new ruling that signatures should only be six lines maximum?

    The tag line changes to "banned", and any place your tag line appears it's the same one.

    You can't post if you're banned. See what KK said.

    (I don't know about the sig line ruling.)

    I think he was banned about a half hour ago or so for putting out a "reward" asking someone to give him Ravi's real name and address. I take it a threat on a poster is one of those big no no's.

    How long he's been banned for, I don't have a clue.

    I've defended P.I. before but he crossed the line there. I hope he isn't allowed to come back.

    Signatures are limited to 10 lines and it's only enforced when its being blatantly abused.
