While in the majority of cases an Admin will, or attempt to warn you that your actions are unacceptable, in some cases a ban will be issued instantly and will apply across all like servers.
This is the only Australian ISP that can ban without warning, pathetic imo. Why should a person who dedicated him/herself to moderating a game have the power to ban without warning. Have a little enthusiasm to a job that there is tons of people in line for or step down and let someone else get admin who is willing to write a one sentence warning before a ban. As an admin for another isp I always take the effort to specifically warn and only proceed to ban after the disruption continues, instantly just banning a player ruins the community base and I have no doubt that has contributed to why the DOD:S player percentage has gone down dramatically since release. Internode should definitely think about rewriting this instant ban non-sense. The whole point of an admin is to serve the gamers trying to have a good time and not just remove them from the game.
