About moderation guidelines: do the moderators have an agreed-upon grid or table of bans and suspensions determined by frequency, volume and severity? I've seen instances at another BBS where a moderator gives one user a medium-length suspension, and another moderator extends the suspension to the middle of the next decade. What is the likelihood of that happening here? When a moderator takes action, does she take it independently and the other moderators accept it without question, or is it possible that another moderator would think "nah, three months is much too light. This needs to be eight years or longer."
Judge One: "Deary me. You stole a car. First offense. Three months in jail for you."
Judge Two: "WTF dude?! The user STOLE A CAR! OFF WITH HIS HEAD!!"
