I'm Santa Claus - and remember, Santa Claus will always let you know when you're unbanned. Merry Christmas. Nothing personal - my script is for all channels on all networks.

And since I'm not staff - I give users the benefit of the doubt.

Benefit of the doubt: they're unbanned, let them know.
None: nothing.
Disadvantage of the doubt: n/a, or attempt/beg/request the ban to be longer if lifted.

My general service to the world.

Ho ho ho.
