Right! So...I can't figure out by looking exactly what happened to a poster by looking at their User page.
For instance, Hellboy's posts still show on an forum page, but his post count is zero. He was banned, right?
Angry Hippo's posts still show on an forum page, and his post count is zero. But...was he banned? Not that I recall.
Varus, of course, was nuked from orbit, his posts are gone and he has no user page (not one us plebes can see, anyway).
So I guess the question is "what are the different levels of punishment/banishment"? And "how can I tell by looking"?
