I've seen a few post from a couple years ago where the user was not registered and still posted (?).They can't post after they're banned, but their existing posts don't disappear.
So are records kept when a user breaches the posting guidelines?
To be fair to the moderators they will usually post "closed" and link to the particular part of the guidelines or the other thread of relevance.What annoys me is when a thread you start is closed and you dont get a reason why....
In fairness to the Mods, if it really was a basic question, the probability is high that the answer would easily be found via the search function or google.Just a couple of days later, I then read the thread on magic mum where various people stated that they dont use the forum any more for fear of being made to feel stupid for asking basic questions.
In fairness you could apply that logic to any question asked on the AAM forum.In fairness to the Mods, if it really was a basic question, the probability is high that the answer would easily be found via the search function or google.
It can be very tiresome for members on this site to answer the same question 400 million times to different users.
