Sorry. I thought that was common knowledge.
I was being more or less tongue-in-cheek by taking a cheap shot at the type of player I regard as more worthless than pond scum; but whether a few manage to crawl back in under the fence or not, on the whole its an effective enough system to deter most and make it harder for the rest.
To take the latest notorious banning as an example, the player in question was well known in the forums and well regarded by most. And that was back when he was, presumably, an honest 1500. Whatever honest accomplishments he managed are now tainted along with whatever friendships and clan relationships he had. And on top of that he has become the forum joke.
Sure he could manage to crawl back in under another identity but certainly his old life on RHP is over.
