Notes:
   All decisions are mainly rendered by Moderators and can vary from those from 'Table of Sanctions'.
   Admin words are indisputable.
   Number of warns determines the volume of offense.
   Warns are visible for everyone on the stats page.
   Having warns leads to troubles with unban requests and may affect Moderators' decisions.
   Being provoked may reduce sanctions of Bans for Family Flame, National- and Religious Intolerance.
   Warns can be removed after a certain time or under certain conditions
