What about the users who have been banned who want to delete their images, threads, posts and content here? Because they are banned they are unable to do so even if they want to. It is their intellectual property. Will you honor and respect the protection of that property by allowing them to remove their history here?
Currently banned users have no way of removing their history here.
There is a long list of users who would prefer to not continue to have this site benefit from their hard work and efforts when they are treated so disrespectfully. The least you can do is allow the content to be removed. If all the banned users removed their sketchbooks and art from the site, it would be a shell of its former self. Maybe that is the reason why.
It's deceptive to ban a user without fair warning and leave their artwork around, giving the illusion that they are still active members who support the community. The new guys wonder why the old guys don't post anymore. Could it be because they CAN'T post anymore? Like half of the Massive Black artists accounts? Your actions are the reasons why half the amazing talent had to leave here to find new homes, because they couldn't log into their own accounts to keep posting.
After so much bad press lately, many of us want no trace of ever being associated with this site, and we would like a way to wipe our history clean here. Every other site provides users a way to do this. Can you provide a way for us to do this?
If you can't do it, you should add something to the sign up form which flashes a big warning sign that says:
Alert, you may be banned at any time for no good reason and without warning. Especially if you say or do anything that the management doesn't like. But we won't tell you what we don't like until it's too late.
After you are banned, you won't be able to log in and your account will be kept online with no mention of how or why you have stopped posting. We will continue to promote your images and threads as if you were still an active member."
