Lock comment section on banned user profiles - A Site Idea.

Few good reasons for it to remain open.

There are no good reasons for the comments section of a banned user's profile to remain open. On few occasions it is the place to learn why a user was banned when a reason is not officially displayed, but this question is just a curiosity and the answer has no helpful application. Many users flood this comment section with taunts and "last words", which always end up in discussions focused on further reducing the banned user, which is redundant since **they're already gone for good.** This unnecessary drama is sometimes enough to push the banned user to return the favour, as evidenced by the recent spam.

    Moderators and higher are able to remove the comment module manually. Post discussion on bans can be both good and bad, but if things end up being bad, they should remove it.

    Props for this idea. Besides what's mentioned above, once a member has been banned (no matter how bad his/her actions were) he/she has no longer means to defend himself/herself or argue his/her side of whatever happened, so it's only fair the profile should be frozen for good.

    After seeing Mr. Arab Spam earlier today, I have to agree; a banned user has to appeal privately to get their posting priveleges back (since being on the site is a privelege). I'm in favor of the concept. Someone would have to be REALLY bad to be getting a banned status. *ends ramble there*
