Banned on PG? Why?? Chit-Chat

Have been receiving many queries such as:
- Whats the criteria for banning someone?
- Why was XYZ banned?
- What should we avoid so as not to get banned?
Since its a people's forum, I thought its better we have a thread on this issue as well. Henceforth, this thread wo...

Premmm What ban you are talking about? Are you talking about the.... 11 Jun '13.

When you're banned on PG, permanently, you've done something so drastic, broke the rules, that the mods took this extreme step of banning you.

If you've been banned for some time, take that time to stay off the forums and learn the rules and identify the nonsense that you did, that you will no longer do when you are back on the forums.

@kuljeet_the_warrior was banned for 2 weeks following a report. He created a clone, @more_deadly and had the temerity to ask us to verify things before taking action. The first ID's ban increased to a month, the second one banned permanently.

IIRC, @sonnes had warned him in the past as well. One more such action and his IP itself gets banned for life, just like we do for spammers and advertisers.

    @silent_spectator and @sharkey banned for 7 days each.
    People have a right to have opinions contrary to yours, and that does not mean they are spamming or insulting others. Trying to silence their words by reporting excessively will only mark you are confrontational, not them. Take care.
    @vrchawade has been banned permanently for advertising for some cribby site that promises cash for brain, in the name of mocks.
    @alihaider786 has been banned for 30 days for initiating communal and hate mongering statements on a post that did not need such a reaction. Despite being warned, he continued to engage in unnecessary communal arguments.

    @nitin119 and @plant.waters banned for 7 days each. We've mentioned it a number of times - take your vendettas out of PG. And you think we can't get to see that you're reporting each other's posts and comments just for getting even? Please, think of some new ways to entertain us. This is getti...

    Courtesy @sonnes : Fake accounts and cheating on Mocks invites an immediate ban. Please ensure you play fair.
    @dragster banned for one week - frivolous reporting. Mind you, people have already been warned - take your vendettas out of PG - if you use the reports system to irritate authors, you might find yourself on the receiving end.
    @vavi1978 banned for a week for abusive language. This is a zero tolerance issue and no warnings are given for such language. Banned on reporting.

    A few days back, I posted this ping: http://www.pagalguy.com/pings/alrighty-then-debating-whether-post-not-ping-17108350/ but not many have taken it to heart. I was saddened to see one good and helpful puy resorting to such frivolous reporting. The puy has been banned for 7 days.

    @NMIMS_HR banned 7 days for fake reporting of users. PG does not recognise your internal PR rules of posting on threads. Therefore, you have no right to threaten or report any PG user to refrain from posting on any PG thread.

    @dhruv_malhotra banned for 7 days for excessive reporting of normal posts. Take your vendettas out of PG, and before that, learn what needs to be reported and what is worthy of being on PG.
    @scrabblar tried to impersonate @scrabbler hence was banned by @sonnes.
    Subsequently, the same person behind the first ID came and created a clone @jaspuniit trying to impersonate @jaspunit. And then went ahead asking everyone for more Karma by liking their pings. And mentioning yours truly in...
