    It's not important, but I am curious as to why a few of the Currently Active Users on the main forums page are highlighted by either a red box or a dotted line box?

    That means that they are banned from ABW.

    When a user gets banned (virtually all are banned for spam), they get moved to the "Banned Member" group (the ones with the pink dots around their name). From there, they only have access to the "Banned Member Forum", where they can engage the moderators to have their ban reconsidered. (We've had a few that were banned by mistake and dozens who have pledged to follow the rules [and virtually all have kept their promise].)

    If a banned member spams inside the Banned Member Forum, we have an additional level of banning that removes their ability to post even in that forum. Those are the ones with the red line around their names.

    The pink dots and red lines are basically just a visual queue to the moderators so we can know at a glance that we're looking at a post from a banned member.
