Moderator/Admin discretion requires us to use our best judgement. It's all about the context of the words and images being used. If someone says that this site sucks, that does not require a permanent ban. Alternatively, someone who is spamming the forums with pictures of penises and exploding brains probably will receive a suspension longer than one day. If you feel a suspension or ban is unfitting, compare it with the guidelines above and contact the Head Moderator.
