We notice that some banned members (of the most pernicious kind) continue to contact our current members regarding their forum posts. They even complain about the fact that they cannot join in the dialogue. They forget that due to their past behaviour they have relinquished all rights of participation in the community. We do condemn such approaches (but of course, we are not surprised by them) and we strongly encourage users to report them (as they should report problematic posts and Personal Messages with the "Report to moderator" link). And, of course, there is nothing "private" about such inappropriate approaches which blatantly and repeatedly ignore the rules.
