It confuses me when someone says they are banned but really they mean they are suspended for a few days. --- https://controversy.wearscience.com/img450/turtle.png

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. --- ill be here 4 u eco jus lyk the mop on the commercial babby-wechina23 fighting games suck-bluerain

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. --- https://controversy.wearscience.com/img450/turtle.png

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. --- GT: hawkeye2188

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