These warnings will carry a penalty of a temp ban if they are deleted. Just stop and think about what you're doing before you start harrassing; how would you feel if you were on the receiving end? There's a human being behind every mod team member's name just as there is behind every user's name... and we don't have to take abuse.
Honestly I would permanently ban them if they continue harrassing any of you. I totally understand where you all are coming from as it is not fair. I don't understand why these members(generally being our new members) don't read the rules entirely and or read them and ask questions if they don't understand them. I haven't recived one email about questions they may have about the rules and instead a new member will break them the next day and you mods have to place the rules on their profiles, because they don't read them or don't read them carefully.
I wish there was a function for the mods to be able to view all members that have or haven't read the rules and the one's that haven't should be restrained from posting untill reading the rules...
