I didn't think mods had a sense of humor.
When we're talking about banning at the drop of a hat, I don't think it's funny.
I'd like a straight up answer. It's fair enough if infractions can be given as a warning, you take it on the chin and live with it. But if a minor infraction causes a ban I'll turn into a lurker and not contribute anymore just in case I say something a mod doesn't like.
In the rules document, there is a screen shot of the infractions page that moderators and admins use. I specifically put in in there so that there wouldn't be any questions.
It shows how many points each infraction is worth and how many points it takes to get a ban.
