He went beyond PMs. He actually emailed me with some bogus email site, pretending to be Stevenf, and offered to give me a gift under said guise. I wouldn't have even told anyone had it not been for the fact that he used Stevenf's name, and I had to respond. But his banning only lasted a day or two.

It's not like a government over a country, where it's a real hardship to pick up and move; people can very easily stop coming. So yes, they have the legal right to administrate as they see fit, but if it's not a fit way to administrate, then there are some natural consequences, such as people leaving who weren't actually banned.


Actually, that's surprisingly true. I had such support on Jimmie's Awesome Collection of Funny Pictures that a lot of people complained about the banning. In fact, I got messages from dozens of people saying that if I made my own funny picture site, they'd join it, meaning the banning can potentially have real consequences for Jimmie's site. I think the public posting of the conversation really helped it. Jimmie actually re-friended me and offered to re-open negotiations. So now, I'm in a tricky spot, where if I'm polite (but not groveling, otherwise it's against the entire point of the discussion of admin abuse) and shrewd, I might be able to convince him to unban me. But at the same time, if I mess up this opportunity (and by the way, I contacted two of the other admins, and while one already has a personal tiff with me, the other one is on my side), I might be banned from it forever.

More on this story as it develops. ;-)

In the same way a person with a gun could shoot someone, as that is within their power, that power doesn't make the shooting right. It's the same story with admins/moderators on forums. Just because they have that power, and CAN exercize it any way they see fit, doesn't mean they SHOULD do that. So, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "The fact that it isn't fair isn't really the point."

I think a better analogy would be kicking someone out of your house. It's your house, and you're perfectly entitled at all times to determine whether or not somebody should be in it. That doesn't mean you wouldn't be a dick for suddenly turning on someone for no obvious reason, but it's your house, and you have no duty to house people in it. Forums aren't really a public service, unless they decide to frame themselves as such. They are, at least in some cases, private communities run by private individuals. I guess it gets a bit messy when it comes to discrimination by group (analogous to a private club banning a minority), but as far as I'm aware, that's not what we're dealing with. Legally, Jimmie has done no wrong; morally, little if anything; socially, he may have made a significant misstep, depending on the specifics of the situation.
