I think that's where the ban thing comes from - rather than wasting a lot of the mods time in PM conversations with people who have infringed the rules, they just give out a week long ban.
Might not be the perfect solution, but I think your solution of the mods sending you a rollocking message has already been found to be unworkable by the modding team. - It just takes up too much of their time (apparently).
Good points Brian.. I am assuming after advice that it was the PM thing that may have done it.. Fact is I suppose I will never know and that was my point...
And yes if I infringed the rules a rollocking would have resulted in an apology from me.. But as said I will likely never know......
