    I was just reading the thing about the contributions and I was wondering, even after somebody has paid $25, can they be banned? Not that I'm planning on getting banned or anything, I was just wondering.

    Yes, Demis must abide by the very same rules that non-contributors must abide by. If they violate the rules they forfeit their $25.

    I know a few demis who have been in time-out and at least one who has been banned.

    Rules are uniform and equal to everyone, even those paying.

    For an extra $US50 I can mentor your demi journey and insure you are never banned.

    Don't ask what the mentoring process entails.

    I'll have to check my sliding fee scale considering the extra work that would be involved in your case.

    He's nothing but trouble.

    Charge him $100. That's more than fair.

    Oh is there a such thing as the "time-out?" I thought if you did something wrong you get the straight-out ban!

    For some reason, I only prefer their acoustic version.
    Depends on the situation.

    We might have a fancy title under our usernames, but the same rules apply to us as to a newbie making his first post. When you sign up you agree to a standard of behaviour, no matter what that doesn't change.

    So sad that people are attributing "Nobody [puts] Baby in the corner" to Fall Out Boy. *sigh* :)

    Been in time-out once.
    It was :( face. It was for 14 days and it was over the course of WWDC. Bad timing.
    But I wasn't a Demi then.
    Come to think of it, I've been pretty good since becoming a Demi.
    Stopped calling people a*******. Things are quite gravy.

    To solidify your answer, be nice. Everyone can be banned.

    I wonder what it feels like being in time-out. It must be so lonely...

    But looking at this, I can't see where it mentions you're one of the best things to do in Chicago... :p
