Yes, the banning system works as follows:

1st time: Warning
2nd time: Temporary ban [Changing of password; after a certain amount of time, it is returned to you through e-mail]
3rd time: If there is a third time, you're banned forever.

Read here for more infomation on banned members.

And Mad's quote on your last question,"They weren't banned with the idea that a new screenname and IP address would make their presence welcome or tolerable."

Hope this cleared some things up for you.

I assume to make the point that they arn't welcome.

You're right, there's a loop hole that some banned members choose to take advantage of, but it appears that most get the drift and leave. Either that or there's one awsome internet course on ways flawlessly up-holding new identities

well i feel that all they have to do is make up a new username and email and their back in. i feel that there has been some strange and stressful to deal with users here the past few weeks i like coming here but there are times when i feel like i dont. probally the same for others too though but if it seems there is chances for them to easily come back. unless they are ideitified by being bannable again. do you think?. . thanks for any advice people can give me.

If a banned user's IP is not stagnant, then yes, he or she can easily sign-up and post on the board again.  However, when that does happen, he or she is just as easily spotted and banned again.  It is tiresome and I don't purport to say that the staff's system of picking out 'banned members-in-hiding' is flawless, but if you take a look at the Wall of Shame, you'll see that the banned members have been caught using new fake identities numerous times.  Until they find better uses of their time, it'll keep happening and the moderators will just have to keep a close eye on everyone.  

And I don't mind doing that at all.

You're such a badass, Mer. 

Banning is pain and the staff seems to strive to not have it happen so I really wouldn't worry about it if you have fun without offending others.
