It confuses me when someone says they are banned but really they mean they are suspended for a few days.

Technically, being banned is just having your access to something revoked, no explicit time frame. You can be banned for a short period of time. It's a proper use of the term.

Actually youre wrong TC. Banned doesnt mean any specific time frame. You can be banned for a time period.

If youre going to make a topic complaining about how people used a word, you should make sure youre using it right first.

If you just say your account was banned, I will assume it is forever disabled unless you otherwise specify a time frame.

If you say your account was suspended, I immediately know that you will be getting your account back.

"Banned" is ambiguous. Also using "suspended" is a lot better.

I get where your coming from TC, however I don't think when someone is banned they are forever unless they say permaban, I suppose you could use suspended and expelled like at school, but even then some schools let you come back the following year you are expelled. Confusing.

The terms Riot uses are time bans and permanent bans. They're both bans. Generally you're right. Here you aren't.
