This topic serves as a log for probations and bans so that you know what's up if someone isn't posting when you are expecting them to post since there isn't a very obvious way of telling if someone is currently under a posting probation.
This isn't meant as a public humiliation topic. If the staff catches you harassing these people on PureZC, the rules will still apply to you and you may end up finding yourself on this list as well.
Minor offenses won't be recorded here unless they lead to a probation or ban from adding up points. Ban evasions that don't make it very far before being handled also won't be recorded here for the sake of saving time, though the ban length of an existing ban will be updated here if it needs to be.
If you were banned or restricted and do not know why, check to see if you received any PMs from a staff member and check your warnings. Your warnings can be accessed by going to your profile and clicking on the "X warning points" link under your avatar.
Posting probations are not too big a deal because they are always for extremely short lengths of time (1 or 2 days) and you can still interact with the site quite a bit. They are meant as brief breaks from posting. You should still take them seriously and strive to not make a repeat performance, but they are definitely not the end of the world if you get one.
Chat bans are obviously bans that happen from the chatroom.
Bans [from the entire site], on the other hand, are when the staff pulls out the big guns. If the staff are issuing a ban, you either have 9 warning points or the staff has lost patience with you and feels (usually after a vote) that you need to take a more serious break from PureZC. You cannot use most of the site while you are under a ban and if you use the chat, you'll also be banned from there.

aaa2 --- Banned --- 11/12/2013 --- Forever
This was originally a posting probation for harassment (particularly misogyny) that would have lasted for one day, but it turned into a full ban when aaa2 started blowing off the warnings bluntly and threatening the site. Given his history of probations, bans, blowing off the staff, and his proud proclamations of being a troll, the staff decided to make it a permanent ban.
