    Dear Mr Dos Box, this is new?

    Maybe I'm being a bit stupid right now but I have been on EduGeek actively for over a year and I have never seen this before

    :O It's true they do ban people, I kinda want to know what this person did (or maybe I don't) anyone else seen this before?

    Probably people like the film pushers who popped up a while ago, or blatant advertisers.

    Havent seen anything in general posts that are ban worthy (yet!)

    I know but I figured EduGeek would just remove all their posts never to be seen again it seems strange to me that they keep the profile and posts up but just say banned in the rep?

    That would break the sense of threads where they had posted "sensible" content.

    This^
    Spammers are banned with all posts removed
    Others may be banned for a specific offence but previous posts will remain. The "banned" status is then just information
