    say you banned someone for an infraction of the rules. now this person used there home email address to register on lawn site.
    couldn't they just register again from either a public library computer or some other email address?

    if they can whats the point of banning someone at all?

    Yes banning works to a certain degree. Banning will make it more difficult for the person to come back, but does not make it impossible. However, if they come back as someone else, more often than not, they will have learned their lesson, and they will behave. If they don't, then they will be banned again. Fortunately for us, we don't have many troublemakers.

    There is a behavior pattern....someone who gets banned usually has an attitude problem...and if they reappear under a new name, they want people to know it's them....an ego thing.
