Quoth DrDeth:

But after a couple of warnings you get a rep as a troublemaker, which leads to less slack in notes vs warnings, which leads to more warnings, which leads to bannings. And warnings are forver.
Warnings might be forever, but their ability to give you a rep as a troublemaker isn't. If we see three warnings against someone in the past two months, then yes, they're a troublemaker. If we see one each from five, ten, and fifteen years ago, then they're someone who mostly keeps things under control but occasionally loses their grip.
