    I think right now they're doing important stuff and will pay attention to users later.

    I presume you or the guy seeing the banned message has been banned for something more serious than a grammatical error (liking biting a chunk out of another forumist), so that should be the least of any ones woes.

    Nice that you brought it up again, as Thaminda had said in the thread linked to by ryon420 that it had been fixed.

    They'll get around to it, just don't think it'll be high on the list to be actioned.

    Some warning points. I actually got em taken off but after the ban was over. And the other 5 are because a mod didn't read white text that said "Good enough, yahweh?" in response to him saying sarcasm was dead.
