Regarding DPSX, I'm working to restore his post history, even though his account history is so tiny, it was still a mistake.

John unfortunately can't be restored, I'm told the back up is only a couple weeks, I'm going to see if we can restore some of his post history from beta site at least, it won't be the entire thing but it will be up until mid-2020 at least.

I do think moderation went one step too far regarding John.

Imo he was punished for being his own non harmfull overly expressive self, a warning should have been enough for what he did.

I don't remember the situation in question. But generally when it comes to bans, they're a result of a progressive system. If you let's say commit the exact same offense several times in a row, eventually you'll get a ban instead of a warning. And then a longer ban.
And if you haven't been in trouble for a long time, then we may be more lenient. Etc.

There's more to it, and there are exceptions, but basically we also look at a users mod history when deciding what to do.
