Don't take this the wrong way or anything, but I bet the list would be better served by immediate expulsion of offenders, with no extended judgement and little justification. You're taking this too seriously. Everyone knows what an offending post is. Warn, then expel. It's not an irreversible judgement, and no matter how badly you screw up, you can't hurt anyone.
