How do I get banned from SI's forums?

Though SI reserves the right to ban anyone from the forums for any reason at any time, we’re not eager to do that. Banning usually occurs only when a member has made it clear that he or she is not going to behave in a way that is compatible with the purpose and spirit of the site. That usually means they’ve violated the Comment Policy in a serious way or have shown a pattern of skirting the edges of the rules. Occasionally a member finds a way to avoid flagrant rule violations yet still be a constant headache for the Moderating team. That can also result in banning. The decision to ban or not ban is usually made collaboratively by the moderating team.
