High Maintenance Posters (HMP)

A mechanism is in place to deal with posters who come to these forums for the specific purpose of derailing threads, posting personal insults despite repeated warnings to cease, and generally causing disruption on the boards. This type of poster will have received U2Us from the moderators letting them know of the problems associated with their posting style, and giving them a chance to rectify the problem.

If you are found by a consensus of the moderators to be such a poster, and if you do not choose to change your posting style to fit more amenably into the boards as a whole, you will be banned for up to 90 days.

This post is to serve to clarify reasons why a poster might be banned from the boards for a period of time without having, necessarily, accumulated the requisite points through the Violations system. It is based on the section of TOS that allows the Administrator(s) to ban a poster for any reason deemed to be in the best interests of the boards as a whole.
