... To be banned means you have been formally marked as a sacrifice to Cthulu.

Banned members can't post. If you see posts from them it's from before they were banned. Sometimes a member can be banned and then later unbanned, but that's rare.

I think that any old responses from a banned member shows up that way. If I make a comment now and a year later I get banned for some reason, this and all comments I posted would show me as banned. I am pretty sure they are not new posts. Correct me if I am wrong.

You broke a rule, and the forum administration has seen fit to revoke your access to the forum. You may browse, but cannot post.

As far as I see it you don't need one there. Your country doesn't just welcome in anyone and everyone and then give them an unfair advantage over anyone that was born there. The usa has become a prison. Anyone born here has to work 3 times as hard and pay all taxes, versus the illegals that get healthcare and only pay sales tax if they buy something. At least your country lives by immigration rules. You must be useful and have a certain level of income in order to move there. Here, you get to move here if you want to just be taken care of. I say it is a prison, because there is nowhere for a citizen to run. Fleeing to Mexico? No, they would lock us up in a filthy prison for a few years before deportation. Same with any other countries. The usa, now this place needs a revolution. Doubt it will ever happen though. Electing Trump is the closest we will get to a revolution.

It means that, for some reason, the admins have banned that user from the forums. We often see that with new users because they're either spamming or are actually old users making second accounts (which is a bannable offense, known as being a sock puppet or, if you're Moms and using Autocorrect, a cock pimple).

USUALLY there's an explanation posted in the Ban Log thread. This time.... none. I was curious, but not curious enough to ask. Besides, Moms feels like enough of an animal in the zoo in that thread without being explicitly told that people are watching it.
