If you are having difficulty with your acct, the best way is to contact Tom via email at Tom (at) bike forums (dot) net.
Creating another account and using it to post is against forum guidelines.
In order to get banned other than spam or porn, we have what is called an infraction system. Users (depending upon severity of violation) will usually get a warning with explanation on first issue. The next violation will be an infraction. It takes 3 standing infractions to get banned, hence 'accrued points' or 'accrued infractions'. Each infraction is a point, warnings are just warnings.
With each infraction (or point) issued, there is a statement sent to the member that accrued points may restrict access. Infractions do expire given time, which is why standing
infractions equal a ban. In other words, the violations must be fairly recent in order to get banned.
So there should be plenty of warning.
Hope that makes it easier to understand.
PS. Infractions are not visible to other members, only to the person involved and to the mod/admin team. They are located on your profile.
