Infractions as a alternative to banning someone?

Because as someone who was banned from a forum back in 2008 and recently asked the person to reinstate my account and had the person ignore my request.

I find it wrong,i feel people should be allowed to turn their lives around and given a second chance,instead of being banned for infinity,which i feel to be wrong.

Everyone makes mistakes and such,and people should be allowed to be able to turn their lives around, even on forums.

A infraction system i think would have a meter of every offense a person makes and when it is filled up, they are put on a timeout the first time,but if it's filled up again. They are perm banned.

And forums might ban a person for any reason, But i feel what should be more important nowadays is people's feelings.

If a person doesn't want to be banned, then shouldn't their feelings matter?

I guess it depends on the type of forum.

People who break my rules did so intentionally. There's no gray area.

I have a one strike policy.

I also have a very small number of rules, mostly regarding illegal content.

I don't care if people use words other people find offensive because there's a block function.

Most of the forum rules I see are probably why people are abandoning forums.

People do not like to be micromanaged, especially when they are trying to entertain themselves.

Yup.

I think so too.

On one forum that had a thread area titled "to post material irrelevant to the various forums"

But yet they disallowed discussion of video games, i feel if forums started being more lenient on some rules like allowing discussing of stuff they forbid before. More would be going to those forums. That forum that forbid video game talk is now a ghost town.
