About that "people who do not want to get banned" thing....
There are several very clear and straightforward steps which are followed before a member is banned. For first few violations, a member is always warned either via public warning or PM. Most often, a final warning is given before putting a ban on him/her. So incase of "people who do not want to get banned" .. they do get ample opportunities to restrict themselves from facing a ban. There has been countless examples of members who realized their mistakes and later became valuable posters in BC.
The only instances where immediate bans were imposed without warnings happened when spammers signed in BC just to post some extrememly abusive languages or comments about other members/bangladesh cricket/bangladeshis/any other nationalities.. stuff like that.
