Heh. No one knows for sure. Just rumors really. Seemed like a pertinent wrench to throw into the discussion.
If you are referring to who I think you are referring to, the way to tell where they were given a temp ban or not is just see if you can message them. If you can't that means they've been given a temp ban. As of today, that person can be contacted. Not sure if that case was different a couple days ago.
