Bans are pretty rare here. When they occur it's due to (usually) repeated violations of the Participation Guidelines and Terms of Service. (There are certain cases that we won't warn first, but its pretty rare.)
99% of the bans on our ban list are system generated, and came from the user clicking a link. If you subscribe to a thread or threads, each email that you receive from the forum contains a link at the bottom to 'stop all emails' from us. Its actually a two part link, once you click the email link a web page loads that requires a conformation. The web page explains that you are about to inactivate your login, but that seems to often be missed.
If anyone has concerns about specific issues, please contact me via the forum Private Messaging system (click my name to the left and then 'send this user a Private Message' on my profile page).
