    Exclamation The how do I get banned? thread.

    This is a free site and open community. However, all mods and admins have ability to ban. It happens for many reasons but there is one thing in common with all who have been banned to date...they earned it.

    After seeing a flood of new folks this year, we need to make a few things clear again.

    Things not to do:

    act abusively

    spam posts

    too much promotion and no contribution

    giving mods or admins headaches, thus wasting their valuable time, during or after they make polite requests. polite discussion is always fine. insults and bad behavior earn the ban hammer.

    causing mods to have to repeatedly remove garbage posts, rants, or stupidity, because the user does not think before they pushed submit.

    piracy support or posting pirated materials

    legal matters

    and any other legit reason the admins or mods may come across

    Ugh, why are legal matters in the list? Or is it referring to something specific?

    I'm guessing "legal matters" is a catch all for things that might open CA itself to legal action. I can't immediately think of any that don't fall under the piracy heading, but I'm sure there are many.

    As J Wilson said, it's not so much a discussion over "legal matters" but matters that may find CA in a bad position or liable.

    I had banned a user condoning shoplifting and stealing of art supplies. I don't know if you call "stealing physical art supplies" piracy in the sense that people usually associate it with software.

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Actually, its a good question. Some art related to Loli/Hentai/porn fetishes could create legal concerns. If it does then where do we as a community draw the line and say "you can't post art of *this*"?

    That would fall under "legal reasons" and not under "art", in that case, and would come down to the decision of the admin/mod in question.
