Yeah but not trying would just make things worse, if people keep getting banned. most of these behaviors could potentially be prevented without ban, it would make it easier for this website to grow. Excessive banning will eventually kill this website.
If people are banned without warning, it damages this sites reputation and will slow traffic signifigantly. It gives other websites that potentially could support us the impressions that staff here really don't care about their members. I am pretty sure that's not the case, I just think more people being online is a benefit.
Nobody wants to come and see a dead website. there are 12,000 members but only 150 peeople are active. That's not good...
