How does the temporary ban work?


Issue: You want to know what the temporary bans feature is for.

Environment: All

Solution: Temporary Bans is a feature that should be used very sparingly in that it is intended that is a user goes to 10 bad things within a 10 minute time span they will get banned from the internet for 10 minutes. The reason it is recommended to be used very sparingly is that if say you have "Social Networking" blocked and a user goes to a page that has a Facebook Like/Facebook Share/Twitter retweet buttons, there is 3 calls to those categories. Over 4 pages within 10 minutes and the user ends up banned.
