    I already recommended that in my first response to this post yeah. But if the thread starter feels better for needing a reason ..

    Playing games is childish. Just ignore the person.

    Responding to the person's threats and cajoles is a waste of your time - and he prob'ly enjoys the jousting. Just ignore the person and he will soon tire of talking to himself.

    You can play by his games, LOL, and pull a number on him. Tell him he is unbanned. And then tell him he is banned for threatening staff. Therefor he now has a valid reason. If he keeps complaining about it, you have a good reason to not unban him since it's obvious he won't change that behavior. This way, both you and him are satisfied with the ban. haha.

    Yeah, at least they'd threaten on behalf of the client(s) as a scare-tactic to make you settle out of court.

    Be aware that you can ban anyone for any reason whatsoever, just as you can do with your own home.

    He's blowing smoke, and think logically: who's going to pay thousands of dollars in lawyer fees to regain access to a forum?

    My personal belief is that if something happens on another site, but my community isn't dragged in, then it stays there and they aren't banned from my community.

    However if something happens in another site, and my community can be potentially dragged into it, or has been dragged into it, they are banned.

    I make pubic fools of these people by starting a thread on the threats. I just tell them that "I am really looking forward to seeing you in court. Bring it on."

    I don't know about banning someone just because you don't like them...would you want places you post to ban you just because? (I'm not trying to be a smart a...)
    Sometimes it happens.

    It's your site, your rules, you allow them to be on your site. They're not paying for it, they're not supporting it, they're just visiting. It's like going to someone's house; it's theirs, not yours. If they don't want you to be there, don't go, and if you still try it, you're trespassing.

    No lawyer would take the case. It be a total waste of time, even if you did it yourself. I think even in the vB register text it says that you can be banned for any reason.

    wiki:

    "Freedom of speech is the concept of being able to speak freely without censorship.Freedom of speech is one of the crowning achievments in civilization however many people being opprotunists abuse freedom of speech to launch endless waves of verbal hand grenades although this freedom was meant to be able to speak ones mind without government opposition many now simply interperet this freedom to simply mean the right to be legitimately intolerant."

    Freedom of speech is void as soon as they sign up. Plain an simple.
    It is your site, your rules. Without prior notice you can block whoever you want with a reason or not. Let them complain and threat and go to court. It's his time and trouble, and his money he's wasting. I've banned enough people as a preventive measure. They complained, I ignored. Getting access to a web site is a privilege, not a right.

    Do you have a Terms of Use policy? You can point a section out to the user where they are in violation.
