Hey, I see we now have a "This account is disabled" flag to slap on banned users' profiles. Any other additions along these lines?

Is there a meta-index of banned users? I got a strange e-mail about a month ago from someone who claims to have an account but 'cannot post this week'. It was stupid and I wrote back that I thought the link was very commercial. It got me thinking: is there an index to check whether a user name has been banned?

At what point do you get a perma? I'm not going to link back to the post, but Reklaw's Harry Potter post was out of line on a major level.
Am I overreacting?

ParisParamus made MetaFiler more interesting. He's been banned too long. Can ParisParamus be unbanned?

I think it may be time to ban Leyna Howe
. She's posted nothing but pseudo "questions" and mostly irrelevant comments
about how to convince older men to not have kids (most of her comments and posts have been deleted already). I'm sympathetic to pet causes, but she's not engaging with the community in any way other than to "get the word out."

How long should a generally good contributor be banned for giving a
bad jokey answer to a controversial AskMe topic?

Seriously, if this doesn't come out everywhere on Monday morning and this turns out to be a stupid rumor, truthout and rawstory links are going to be banned from mefi.

is the second time RonZ
's linked to komar.org. The first time was to the halloween lights display
and this time it's the christmas lights. If I recall correctly, the original poster of the christmas lights thing was outed as a self linker (although I can't find the thread) so I suspect it's a sock puppet at work.

Is there any history of banishment here? And if so, what happened to cause being banned? In all my years of visiting, I have never read about an actual occurance of this.
I did a couple of searches and came up with nothing.

If a user is banned for blatantly violating the no-self-link rule, would it be a good idea to either a) note the banning on that person's user page or b) delete the user page entirely? Seems strange to keep a user page from someone who took a dump on the community.

I want to be able to ban myself from Metafilter temporarily.

In light of the recent tragic events in AskMe, and on MeFi, I move that we enable some kind of vote-banning system, or just close new user signups altogether until inbreeding causes us to become one eyed, immune-system-less pedigree albinos.

Banned from MeFi? Are there any hard and fast rules? Why does lazy-ville
get banned for weeks, others only a week, and others forever
? If I ever happen to step on someone's toes while on a bender or something, I just want to know what the results might be. Also, is there any page for information regarding who's been banned in the past?

If he hates MetaFilter so much, why does he keep this up?

I'm going to go out on a limb here, and I know there will be detractors, but I'm going to ban this Ed V... guy soon. I built this place, and it wasn't for trolls like this. My reasons are as follows.
He's mucking up the place. It's as if you were talking to people at a party and some guy barges in on the conversation, saying outlandish things just to get a rise out of people.
It's got nothing to do with his positions, it's that everything that comes out sounds like trolling bait for other people to argue with. I've seen it on countless numbers of online forums. The last place I remember seeing it was Slate's boards (called, "the fray" heh). It seems there was a small pack of very conservative posters that would tromp on any thread that mentioned abortion. Every response from them was pure trolling, and usually done in all caps. Every one of their posts would be followed by 5x as many posts refuting everything they had said, but then they'd follow up with more trolling. It rendered any sensible discussion meaningless, which is what I think was the inteneded purpose.
So that Ed guy is gone very soon, and I don't feel bad about doing it.
