Have you ever had to ban someone on your forum?

I've owned forums for almost a decade now and I've had to ban a few members from a few of my forums. Most of the accounts I banned were spam bots, never actual humans, with the exception of one individual. I had promoted them to Admin, which was a mistake on my part. They changed all my forums' themes without even asking me, and the themes they picked didn't even fit the niche of the forum. So I demoted them, and they got upset so I banned them. It was on a Proboards hosted forum, they even asked Proboards staff about un banning them but obviously the staff couldn't do anything about it. :P I'll never make the mistake of randomly promoting someone to Admin again... :S

I've had to ban a couple of spam bots, but that's about it. I've run forums on and off for a long time, but I never really had a reason in the early days. These days, I work hard to make sure spam bots get booted. They deserve to be.

Other than spammers (who were banned shortly after signing up), I've had two people who asked to be banned, one person who created constant drama, and one person who turned out to be faking everything they said about themselves. But, that's it (and I hope it remains that way).
