Please give them a chance to apologize! It's not fair that they can't apologise, due to a sudden and perm ban! That rule really confuses me.
We do warn people. Pornography should obviously be a definite no-no where a permanent ban is warranted, but, and I'm sure other Moderators will agree with this, we've given spammers plenty of opportunity (warnings and infractions and then a temp ban) to reform before resorting to permanent bans.

And if someone chooses to violate a temp ban by creating a sock-puppet then quite frankly they've earned a permanent ban.

May I ask why you're so interested in having them unbanned? You're lucky we're even having this discussion, really.

And in any case, as Mim states, we don't discuss bans and infractions with other members, so I'd suggest not dwelling on the issue.
