Where possible we will use this points system to deal with users who continually break the rules, however as a forum we reserve the right to remove any user for any reason at any time.

Saying that users will be perma-banned only in extreme circumstances, please help us to help you by obeying the rules of the forum.

Please bear in mind moderating decisions are final and won't necessarily be shared with the user who raises the initial report. Whilst we do appreciate feedback, constant criticism or disrespect to decision made by Si and the moderating team will not be tolerated.
