When it comes to members and not spam bots. Do you believe permanently banning someone is the answer? If yes, why is it justified and does this mean that you don't believe people can change?

Some people are emotionally unstable and that's something you "can't change" in a short period of time, i do believe that it could be a possibility but not quite sure.

This decision is only made over people that literally goes crazy over your site and members.

I'm glad in a way that I get more bots that get banned automatically than a real person. With a real person, you tend to have a butt pain with them, and end of the day you always start off with warning them or giving them points, and then the last option ban for life.

On my site, I have an 8 point rules system and once they get all 8 points they are ban for life. Like posting naked images is permanently ban, spamming can be one to two points, depending on the outcome. if three or 4 points they get 24 hours ban, then 4 to max of 8 they get longer ban days then over 8 points permanently ban

It depends on the person in question. You have to look at each individual person. Some people can change and become a better person once they've aged a couple of years and have matured. Other people never grow up or mature, they think other people are always the problem.

Seems like a lifetime ban is a bit of an over-reaction. Murder gets life, a serious assault you're out of prison in 10 years. Piss someone off on the internet and get banned for life...

Nice analogy lol, but it's not like you're in jail, just got kicked from a forum :p

It's up to the owner tbh.

For bots, instantly. For spammers, I like for it to not come to that, but if I can't talk someone out of bad behavior, and temp bans don't do it, yea.

It's something that I try to avoid especially for smaller problems. I think giving them a chance is fine for certain issues especially on a somewhat relaxed environment like we have here at DH. But certain users definitely deserve a perma ban.

Honestly the only time I perma banned someone is because they uninstalled my themes and added unrelated themes to my forum. If I ever get members harassing other people and they continue to do so even after being suspended, I'd probably have to perma ban them for good too.
