In digging through old posts researching topics of interest, I've seen "Banned" users, and wonder what that's all about. If someone here is trying to mislead others into using an Exit Strategy scam, for instance, I'd expect they'd be banned, or even just "deleted" - but are there other things that can be reported to a mod that would get someone banned, like a member who doesn't honor a contract and backs out, or one who misrepresents their listing after it being pointed out to them that there was an issue, etc?

For the following behaviors, posters usually get multiple warnings, and only get banned if they won't stop:
Offensive posts
Self-promotion
Politics
Contentious social issues

+ We occasionally get scammers involved in fraudulent rentals or sales.

RULES: https://tugbbs.com/forums/help/term...2.2000260488.1720196968-1917326551.1697582985
As always thanks for the amazing and hard work mods do to keep this one of the best forums on the interwebs.

takes quite a bit of effort to get a permanent ban here for a regular (ie not spammy/shilly) person...

though rare, that feat has been accomplished by a handful of people over the years most of which were given repeated warnings and temporary bans in an attempt to correct said behavior. at some point there are no other options left when someone simply cant play well with others.

Thank you for the clarification. I hadn’t noticed the link to Rules, perhaps added as an edit, but very helpful. Hats off to all who contribute to making, and keeping, this forum so awesome for all! ☺️

Too bad you couldn't send them to a full day owners update.
