This may have been discussed already, but anyway... I think it would be a good thing if bans of members were publicly announced, stating who was banned, for how long and why. Possibly with a link to a particular thread where the behaviour is manifest. It would help remove the confusion when people suddenly stop posting, and also serve to clarify what is and isn't tolerable behaviour on TB. It's something that diyaudio.com has, and I find it quite informative.
