    ?? What have I done ??

    I hope I dont live to regret this, but I have removed ALL bans.

    I will be reinstalling a warning system/point system and will not hesitate to put the spammers back into the banned member user group.

    If you do happen to find yourself banned I have added a neat little system that will...

    1. Slow response (time delay) on every page (20 to 60 seconds default).

    2. A chance they will get the "server busy" message (50% by default).

    3. A chance that no search facilities will be available (75% by default).

    4. A chance they will get redirected to another preset page (25% & homepage by default).

    5. A chance they will simply get a blank page (25% by default).

    6. Post flood limit increased by a defined factor (10 times by default).

    7. If they get past all this okay, then they will be served up their proper page.
    ...... but still cannot post.

    don't you think that is a little over done? why dont you just have a page that has something like this:
    http://350south.com/great/testfiles/banned.html

    overboard...against a spammer? Is that the same as too much money?

    There is a method to the madness, long time forum owners will probably understand.
