Having owned some forums for very nearly 5 years I have no foggiest
idea what you are talking about.

There is this absolutely standard thing called Terms of Use that is
filled by a forum administrator. It lists things that are allowable
and things that are not allowable. When you register, you agree to
you, or you don't (and then you don't register).

So you never heard of bans in mailings lists, apparently. Would you
like to know more about it, with examples and background history? :)
