When certain users are banned, some online communities do not display their banned status, while others do.
What I am not referring to
- I am not referring to the visibility of the banned user from the banned user's point of view
- I am not referring to shadow or ghost banning, where it is not immediately clear to the banned user that they are, in fact, banned
- I am not referring to the banned user's content either
I am referring just to the fact that, for some communities, these users' banned status is visible to the rest of the community, and for other communities it is not.
Any best practices?
Aside from technological choices or limitations, is there any well-established rationale for either choice?
