Thanks everyone for participating, it's always a process, but interesting to know where we stand.
That sounds about right. Recently there has been an enormous fuss about a few people who were banned, so it sounds like it's happening all the time. But sit down and count them up, and it really doesn't happen all that often - and when it does, it's the same people.
And, of course, the people who flounced off in a huff after being banned wouldn't have been part of your sample.
