There has been a study of randomness of punishment. My childhood.

I think one of the larger points made by Jimi was that a poster's larger "civility history" seems to be considered in dealing out punishment. Of course every "rule" has an "exception" but it looke to me that there is a general trend to give some benefit of the doubt to folks that are generally supportive - at least when the letter of the law is broken but not the spirit of the law.

Again there are exceptions to every rule, but it also seems to me to be a trend that posters who are generally argumentative get punishment of some sort as soon as the letter of the law is broken.
