Plagiarism is undoubtedly both very wrong, and a major problem within the forum, but I don't see the benefit of removing someone who only did damage (plagiarized) years ago, especially if they are now otherwise being a member who is contributing to the forum.
There's a flaw in this ideology.

Let me simplify the structure of my thoughts into four alternative timelines for a given plagiarist.

P:= plagiarizing user
S:= plagiarized post.

1) P posts S. No one catches onto P. P, over a long time, contributes much to the forum. S is discovered years later. P is let go scot-free.
2) P posts S. No one catches onto P. P is an average user and much time passes. S is discovered years later. P is permanently banned.
3) P posts S. No one catches onto P. P is trying to contribute to the forum: they add some contribution. S is discovered weeks later. P is permanently banned.
4) P posts S. No one catches onto P. P is not trying to contribute to the forum. S is discovered weeks later. P is permanently banned.

The difference between 1 and 3 is the time between the discovery of S and the time it was posted. One user is pardoned because of their contributions. Another is not because they did not fulfill the baseline requirements of minimum contribution.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Retort: "They should have contributed right away!"

If both users 1 and 3 had the same localized post quality and contributory status, the situation would play our similarly. (after all, if you're copy-pasting, it's unlikely your post quality suddenly spikes)
I am not arguing for anyone who has plagiarized to get off scott free, I am saying they shouldn’t be banned forever.

There is a reason why most jurisdictions has statute of limitations laws, and I think there should similarly be limits for forum punishments, especially permanent bans.

If the plagiarism is only a week or a month old, any subsequent contributions are not going to be relevant. If a year or two has gone by, and in that time, the person has not caused harm, he has shown himself to be someone who will not cause additional harm if he is allowed to continue participating. The person who plagiarized a month ago has not shown this.

Also the administration should have caught the person sooner for the one plagiarized two years ago. Someone could have a legitimate defense to what they did, but might have lost the evidence or forgotten the circumstances under which they made a few posts years ago. I think the number of people with legitimate defenses are few and far between, however *everyone* has the right to get to try to defend themselves.

Good day to all. Thank you all for your support.
I want to ask you to review my account again for an appeal. I would like to say that I will continue my work to find scammers on the forum. Summer is ahead, besides the market is growing well now. In this regard, the influx of new scammers who will create a fake ICO or other fraudulent projects will undoubtedly increase. I want to help the forum by making it cleaner, and also to warn all our members of the forum about the danger of joining fraudulent projects.

I respect the rules of the forum, I have no alternative accounts, I write only in one topic.
Thanks you.

Congratulations, lovesmayfamilis!
I would like to ask you a favor to open the topic for a while till my curious question answered by hilariousandco or admins.

By the way, because you are here, please clarify this point for us, hilariousandco:
I only recommended that it should be better for lovesmayfamilis if you support her in her Ban Appeal thread, not here. Maybe you are a member from community simply wanted to support her, but what happen if there are 10 users create 10 threads to support here case? Will it result in Ban Evasion (I guess it is)?
Even if she is a prominent user of the forum, and 10 Ban Appeals from community to help her don't leat to a judgement as Ban Appeal, I believe we might see another kind of complaint, such as: "Why that user has 10 Ban Appeal threads and are not judged as Ban Evasion?" Do we need such kind of complaints?
I could be wrong but I mentioned about it in my guide: Ban appeal - How to make it right and reduce workload for forum staffs
Quote
Warning!
  • Create only one account, with good title, and present as detailed information of your ban (in the OP) as possible.
  • Don't hide anything because you need help. So, if you actually remembered you did something wrong, please post link to bad posts that likely caused your ban (in your perspective). It will save a lot of time of forum staffs, and members.
  • Only do all your appeal efforts with one account, and in only one topic. Open multi topics or using multi accounts to do this will result in ban evasion.
I could misunderstood theymos' opinion there, but I believe he mentioned about banned users, not others. It will be good if theymos leave a confirmation about this point, not only for the thread, but also for later ones.
If you think that a ban should be ended, make your case in a new topic from a "good for the forum as a whole" perspective.
If my thought is wrong, I am fine to correct it after getting your clarification. If my though is right, I will add a little bit details to my guide.

Best regard,

Congrats, but wait you should first understand what you have done wrong before focusing onto something else ( I am not so sure how does that happened but that was an obvious act of plagiarism.

Focusing on the scamming issues won't be a good reason to forget the other forum's mortal sin, Goodluck to your next journey and continue to grow as a good individual

Thanks for right decision, and its much appreciated. Temp ban and signature ban is appropriate. I believe she would continue her contribution for forum. This is the lesson for other peoples also that no one will excuse for breaking forum rules even DT or good contributors. However I think lovesmayfamilis already got lesson and she will avoid such as activity on future.
