The thing we don't want to talk about, but need to keep us in check
The system will be simple, first three strikes, you are banned for a week. If you three more strikes within the month following the unban, you are banned for a month. Finally, if you get three more strikes, you will be permanently banned.
Strikes will "disappear" one month after they are acquired, but if you consistently get two strikes per month (for 2+ months), the following warning will be given: "If you have one more month with two strikes, you will be banned for a month."
Banning due to strikes will be ruled by the current active strikes, and the monthly strikes will be ruled off of the month they were assigned. Only the Server Administrator is allowed to edit this, but strikes will be discussed with at least one non-involved person before being applied.
