Is the "Banned" group really means that a user is banned in BleepingComputer ? Or is it a funny thing?

Really banned. Generally happens to spammers or members who repeatedly disregard the forum rules.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Thanks Budapest. :flowers:
In that case, it is quite shocking that xblindx got banned. I always saw him helping out others in the forums.
Personally, I have already made a mess many times too. I will try to behave myself from now on :thumbsup:

Is it the username banned or the user themselves? I seem to remember at least one person being banned on one username but then returning on different one. I guess I don't know the ins and outs of it but thats how it seemed.

Banned means the user/member is banned from Bleeping Computer. It can only be done by admin staff. It is done on a case by case basis, and it is not an act or measure we take lightly.

Just for the record, the details of why any particular member may have been banned will not be open for discussion.
