Ignotus - plagiarism of a poem word for word, just changing she to he, and the like. This does not make an original work. Council-enforced ban.

DarkPoetry's second rule in the terms of service is: "This site is for original poetry only. Also, plagiarism is a high crime here."

R3b3lC96 - Spam account. The TOS states, "Obviously, you also need to observe proper internet behavior, like not spamming members to go visit your blog, and so on."

Creating an account solely to link to another page/profile/site is a pretty easy way to get banned for spam.

wonderland hysteria, Council-ban, pre-approved by webmaster.

Assuming one's self is above the TOS (including bragging that one will never get banned for anything), after being warned by Council about vulgarity, disrespect, etc, is a pretty effective way for the offender to find out they're sorely mistaken.

Just a clarification on the last post, there was offensive behavior which led other members to feel triggered/abused/uncomfortable, and some misrepresentations made, it wasn't just a bad attitude. If we banned just for attitudes, we'd be really busy. :lol:

wonderland hysteria, aka fabled: Creating a new account to circumvent a ban, will result in the new account being banned as well.

Council enacted, though again with prior approval from webmaster.

jimadams: Spam posts, no content other than to promote some kind of marketing whatever. Spam accounts have a 100% chance of getting banned.

KinkyVixen666: Extensive plagiarism from more than one other poetry site, and even some books we found listed on google books. Council-enforced ban. Permanent, unless you see a follow-up reply by the webmaster.

myratk13: Plagiarism. Creating an account and starting it off by copying another work is a good way to not have an account anymore. Council-enforced.
