by definition of the words, yes banning is more extreme.  in context
however, banning on IRC is the only way, I am aware of, to prevent
auto-rejoin.  used short term, really no more than being kicked.  just
prevents the op from having to re-execute the kick over and over and over
and . . . for each auto-rejoin.

purpose and length of ban are things to be seriously considered for any

i would prefer not to have to have policies, however the real world seems to
force them upon us, eh.

very nice post matt.
