I mentioned over in Malkazoid's On the Move thread that there is a bit of satisfaction in seeing a serial spammer unable to do anything on the platform for six months, and I remembered the explanation that the length of the penalty for each successive violation increases.
I also remembered that I got my own 12-hour penalty during the alpha period before the fiat price for niche auctions got set to what the NRVE was worth at the time the bid was placed, because what should have been my $75 niche became a $180 niche....and I just didn't have the money, so I missed the payment deadline.
Not that I intend to ever do anything that would warrant being Conduct Negative again, but should I ever slip up, what would my next penalty be? 24 hours? Does it double each time? Does it more than double?
Would y'all be willing to share the penalty schedule so that it can act as more of a deterrent? Like, you know you've had two or three penalties, so knowing that your next one would be _____ days long would be a motivating factor in making sure you don't slip up again?
I noticed that @Teddy is active on here right now, and I'm also thinking about how quickly his penalties added up. He might be interested to know how the math worked out, too.
