I have just been wondering, does a caning that follows after a banning ever go away?

How can I get it to go away? I like having my rank shown, and the banning was enough of a blow to get me to be more carefull.

So how can I get it to go?

Edit -sorry if my sentences go all zig-zag (and repeating). I am destracted by my mind yelling "ITS TIME TO READ, STUPID!!!"

You have to make nice with the admins. And you will probably need to show exemplary behavioral improvement for however long said admins deem necessary.

Basically play nice and don't worry about it. PM an admin no more then once a month to ask nicely if it can be removed.

Of course, I have not tested this but it should work... in theory.

Canning (note the second 'n', muffin) is a warning status. It warns you that your behavior is one step away from a ban. It is only going to go away if your behavior changes.

I haven't been paying much attention lately, so I don't know what your behavior has been like recently. I know that it was pretty atrocious when you first showed up, and then (even before the ban) it got a lot better -- for which I validate you heartily! -- but it still needed improvement. If you really have ceased answering questions you aren't qualified to answer (especially in tech support), making pointless posts (and worse, pointless topics), and overreacting to simple comments made by others in ways that tend to fan flames, then (and only then) I would encourage you to politely PM a mod to ask about it.

I've heard of extreme punishments, but I'd take a banning over a caning! ;) (couldn't resist)

No, we don't band anyone. Once they're released into the wild, we really don't care where they go.

Can you if you are permanently banned to just register again with different name?

Yes. But its a serious offence. A mad person (Really mad) named Ed or & tried it once. About 12 times and spammed, flammed and screamed for the past year or so. He will, without doubt try again and will be reading this thread any moment, at which point I wouldn't be surprised if he created another login just to tell me I'm a Strawberry.

Tully never came back after he was Banned. Nalyd misses him, and suspects an administratorial conspiracy.

The moderatorial staff would never even think about such a thing.

I have a banned account! LividFire remains banned forever, but his memory dies on.

Is caning actually used in the US legally for punishment still?

I'm sure caning is still useful in some parts of the country.

I think sugar caning is still performed in Hawaii. It hurts, but it makes your blood taste sweet.

Caning got a big mention over an incident in Singapore a decade back.

Maybe the Spidweb Tortu... Moderators should actually perform a caning after a temporary ban. It would certainly help reformation in the offending vict... member.

Well, he might find that a little hard to do right now. I doubt it's intentional, but still.

I miss him too. He was interesting, if a little odd.

EDIT: Crap. I started posting this when I realized there was something more I wanted to add. Thus, I hit the back button on the browser, and posted again, thinking the first hadn't gone through. Obviously, it did. See the post below for what I was trying to say.

Depends on the type and severity of the offense. Posting something like porn, for example, would result in a ban almost instantly. However, that's the most extreme part of the spectrum. Usually, you'll get an official warning to cease and desist before a ban is enforced. Tullegolar got two or three warnings for posting an offensive image before he got banned (again).

The admins forgot to unban him. They also did that to me, but I emailed one of them and I was unbanned. Someone should tell him when he/she is unbanned...

Also, the reason I got banned was because I posted a thread with a link on it. I thought it was illegal, so I tried to report it. However, the way I posted it gave a missunderstanding and I was banned for two weeks.
