I support the idea that permanent points should have expiration conditions that are clear and reasonable. I suggest that six months after a posters last permanent point, their first PP should expire and be removed. Thereafter, every three months without a new PP, the now oldest should be removed. Old news infractions should be forgotten after reasonable time. This is a changing environment and moderation standard, as well as, what gets infracted changes over time. People change; moderators change, poster interactions change; troublesome pairs go their separate ways. Everything over two years old should be forgotten and removed. That probably ought to be 12 months. An cultivating an environment of long term punishment is stupid. works against the idea of community.
