What are all the things that get someone banned from CF?
CycloneFanatic - Site Rules
Hello, I am Chris Hansen from "To Catch a Predator". Dont lure me in sir.
I could let you know what gets you banned for a week ...
While this site is very strict compared to many similar type of fan sites, in general it helps keeps things civil, albeit while squashing some poetic license. (I'm getting there mods) :biggrin:
Exactly what identifying internet marks does a moderator ban - the IP addy; the Routers IP addy; the MAC address; the ISP Gateway ???
I thought a posters IP addy is usually a "dynamic" address (for cable & DSL ISPs), so doesn't the addy change every time you reboot the computer?
no idea, but i can tell you that bashing current coaches and players wont get you banned
Claiming N'Sync is better than NKOTB
Using "TTFN" in any post
More than ten "That's what she said..." posts in any 24-hour period.
Using serif fonts.
The inability to turn any given thread into a discussion about LE.
There are numerous others, but these are the main ones.
I'm guessing gocy444 is isusux....
I'll betcha we might have a record for fastest ban set by isusux and his thread.
Not using the jimlad appropriately...or at all. :jimlad:
Asking a mod what his problem is. That brings out the
too many sarcasm pirates in one day:jimlad:
Never, ever ask whether season ticket sales include students.
Everyone knows "That's what she said" posts are the most fun! Well if I cant say that anymore I guess Im stuck with "Thats what THEEEEYYYYY said!" :jimlad:
My guess is they ban the username, since that makes the most sense.
Banning IPs works fairly well too, since they do not change very often. IPs are indeed dynamic, but systems are pretty lazy and tend to assign the same IP to the same ethernet card over and over again. You'd have to ban entire blocks of IPs to ban an entire ISP. And since the majority of CF posters share only a few ISPs (would be my guess anyway), banning a whole ISP would be a bit draconian.
You should be fine. Even with the 10 per day limit, you may post "That's what she said" 3650 times per year. And in 2012 you get 4 bonus posts. What a year that will be.
thanks for the explanation. I just ran an IP check on my computer, and it's the same IP addy when I ran it last week. So much for the ISP saying my IP addy is "Dynamic". the liars!
