Sorry, I meant banned from debating.
Actually, yes. After the tempban, they'll learn not to FF, so we get a more active member, and they get more ELO. Win-win! (Unless you're a noob-sniper)
Talk about discrimination
If that policy was established then I would have been perma-banned by now
No, but people who plagiarize should be banned PERMANENTLY.
Not in the least. Banning exists for a violation of rules. Forfeiting rounds is not a violation of rules, just misconduct. Moreover, external factors are often the reason for forfeits, things that can't be realistically avoided. Banning users for this reason is discriminatory to external factors that don't exist within the sphere of the site, or debate itself.
People who forfeit frequently are probably people who just joined the site, took their first debate, lost interest, and are never going to come back online.
