Suspended people are GREY...

I noticed a suspended person is now grey...(at least the name / location area...)

Interesting...

Would still like to see a closed/locked thread on Suspensions, so we know what the person did...It usually doesn't help to look at their last posts to understand...

Edit: Never mind. Nothing looks gray to me though (Firefox browser)

I agree (mostly because they're last posts have been deleted).

That'd make for an entertaining forum/thread.

The Moderators and Administrators do not want you to know why others were suspended. They want to exact justice without needing to consult the masses. Kind of like communism.

Basically, unless you're like Bandoman during the Frontier(s) fiasco, posting in every thread, no one will know why you are banned/suspended. And, unlike Bando, there will be no cry of outrage when it is obvious you were railroaded in your suspension.

It may be unjust to have banned you, but to avoid accountability, deletion and cover-ups prevent any scrutiny.

Personally, I agree that having the ability to see the offending thread is a good idea. I think there should be some oversight. I think if the offense warrants action, and you take a stand, I think you should be able to defend your position. If you can't, maybe the guy SHOULDN'T be banned. Checks and balances are more equitable. Operating in the shadows never is.

Except it is their site and they can do what they want. I doubt they would claim it was fair and I doubt they would care (and I don't blame them).
