moderated Re: Temporary ban #suggestion

I will "third" the agreement with Duane.

If one wishes to ban, as in permanently remove someone, then do it.

If one wants to put them on notice and on a short leash then the group owner or a moderator first needs to tell them so then keep a close eye on what they're doing for some "adequate" [the definition of which will vary] time period afterward, which means putting them on moderated status.  They should also be told they are on moderated status.

Those familiar with the situation that brought all this about should be more than able to determine when to unleash/unmoderate or outright ban said member.

And if you've got more than one or two of those in a group of hundreds at any given point in time then someone has not been doing their job in ongoing enforcement of group decorum from the get-go.
