Question Seeking a ban?

I was in a discussion and a user said they had once sought a ban- to ensure that they would be stopped from coming onto the forums for a period of time...

I was just wondering though, can a user request a ban and if they did, would it be granted?

There have been cases where it has been granted, I do believe the most recent policy is a blanket "no", though one case comes to mind lately, though the user and the mod were on good terms, so I guess there are ways.

The discussion you witnessed though, the guy wanted to vent before being banned, I believe.

Is this me you're speaking about? let me know if it is, so as to take back any of the following I'm about to state.

As we all know these boards serve as a pastime and even an addiction at times. Even the most critical of discussions are not enough to keep a person from coming back. The answer on requesting a ban has always to my knowledge been "no" because there's a chance down the road they'll want to come back and all that jazz. However, the easiest solution was the immature solution I decided to take and to my unfortunate dismay, the ban wasn't permanent, rather three days.

Sometime ago, Globals gave self-requested bans. Some people were asking for, example, a week ban so that they could study. Raz told the Globals that this needs to cease. Ergo it did. With the exception of Schecter, that is.

Ah right, so Schecter broke the rules by being banned? How strange. I don't blame him for asking for it, really.

It saved Ush the work and obvious pleasure of handing out yet another temp ban.

talking from own experience. the best way to gain a ban is to had a fight with Raz, but actually the easier way is just to stop coming here if you're tired of forums.

I think what she's saying is there is an equally adquete alternative to a Ban...its a little self-control.

Doesn't make as good a point.

Self-control? Has this been tried by the people praising they can do it? Maybe the odd aree they couldn't. However some can.

it is not about self control. it is about having life (or some other stuff to do on the net)

Some, if not many, severly lack something to do on the net.

Just to make sure, is this thread about me?

Why does it bother you what other people want to do with their time? Or whether they want to be banned, or not? How's it any of your business?

Not really no, its about whether or not users can ask to be banned.

Is there irony to be found in the fact that she has the third highest post count?
