I've just been talking to someone who claims they just had their account deleted without any warning, notice or anything, they just couldn't log in anymore.
Don't people get a warning first before they get banned? I thought that according to the FAQ, that was part of the procedure.
Well, okay. Technically "account deactivation by admins" is not part of the FAQ. That just makes my question more important to ask. ^_^

There are people abusing the reporting system. I thought admin would be fair to determine why they were being reported for before cancelling their accounts.2

The only accounts that are cancelled without several warnings first are blatant spammers or duplicate accounts.
Everyone else receives at least 2-3 warnings, sometimes more. In the case of duplicate accounts, we cancel the duplicate immediately and warn the original account to not create duplicates again.
People often say they had no warning and they don't know why they were cancelled, but that's never the way things happen.4
