    No, there is not...
    If you see someone with 3 (or sometimes even 4) red dots, you'll know that he/she has been banned by the AntiPoints system, though. If they don't have those red dots and they're banned, they've been banned by an administrator or a moderator. Reasons for that are numerous...

    Good Day,

    Seems it has been by their personal request or lack of compliance with the rules they agreed to.

    cheers

    If they were banned by the moderators it's often helpful to look at their profile and read their last couple posts. Sometimes they cussed them out or something and really deserved the banning. Other people create threads containing only the words "neg me" and get themselves banned by the AP system on purpose, but I have no clue why they did this...

    Wouldn't it be more productive trying to work out how people don't get banned.....

    Just a thought....

    Remember this?
    There's nothing wrong with being a non-conformist, but there are lines that should never be crossed.
    Well there you have it... you get auto-banned when MsM constantly makes excuses to keep you around... and when Neg talks about certian members being to punk for punk rock or something of the sort, almost to a point where people begin to wonder if someone as rude as I would end up turning out to be the forgotten crack-baby of Wendy O. Williams & GG Allin.

    Now then, lets all get naked and start a revolution.

    negative,

    isnt it possible for someone to be banned because of extremely low anti-points, but eventually gain antipoints and leading back into the green, even though they are still banned?
    If you see someone with 3 (or sometimes even 4) red dots, you'll know that he/she has been banned by the AntiPoints system, though. If they don't have those red dots and they're banned, they've been banned by an administrator or a moderator
    otherwise your statement is true

    but to answer a question, once you are banned can you still gain antipoints.?
