Can they ban without a warning?

Can forums ban members without warnings or notifying the person. I'm super upset, I got banned from a skinny forum I'm on. I don't know what I did wrong... Am I that horrible/rude/offensive? 0.oxx​

Yes you can, that's what happened to us on VF (you know what forum I mean) when Ross and I got banned during their banning spree on London people who socialise lol. Just depends on forum rules.

Depends on the place. Some places will just do it outright, we prefer to give people a couple of chances. Edit to add: But it's not like there's a law on it; people who start up a forum can ban whoever they want whenever they want.

exactly what daftscotslass said, the people who make it make the rules. I was banned from one forum because I was a moderator on another... no warning... not against their rules but banned all the same. Look at it this way hun... its their loss

I once had my posting priveledges and pm taken away from me on a forum for joining up apparently (I didn't) as other people and pming them, only problem was I was on holiday at the time and didn't even have access to the internet and I'm not that stupid. Never believed it wasn't me even though I wasn't even around at the time :S I was having a lovely holiday at the time and was most confused when I got home. I don't play games. It's not a forum around these days. But I was cross, I didn't even do anything as I don't do that sort of thing rolleyes

Do you mind me asking was this from Hamster Central? I saw a post on there from a lexybee91 and wondered if this was you?
