Would one of you please file a ticket with the Council to sort this out 
officially? I really think this should be a little less ad hoc.

I also don't like "threats" which is how I read a "ban from all future 
events" which I consider a "threat" if it is not enforceable. As in, if 
we believe that is the right answer to the situation (which I severely 
hope it never is) we should have a SOP (procedure) for it in place, 
which changes it from a "threat" to just the way things operate.
