Discord has "kick" and "ban". "ban" is permanent, and this is a big problem in my opinion.
The ban-system is black and white so far, and I think that it would be better if it were grey. By black and white, I mean that you either ban someone permanently or just refuse to ban them. So, if someone just DMs someone without their consent by saying "hello" they either get a permanent ban or nothing. Someone who does something more damaging like exposing someone from real life, or from other social platforms gets also the same type of punishment, either permanent ban or nothing.
I think that the ban-system could be improved dramatically if the ban system was done in limited durations rather than an unlimited one (which is the case right now.) hence, if someone DMs another one without consent, I can just ban them for 3-7 days, then they can come back again since their damage wasn't so much. On the other hand, if someone exposes another one, or damages a member in a serious way, I can ban them for 4 years or so.
It will also feel great for people who get banned from certain server for futile reasons to find themselves being unbanned after a period of time. Getting banned permanently just because you didn't send a message in the right channel makes the person feel overly guilty which is the case now.
This way, "kick" can be removed if the ban system becomes temporary because you can just ban them for 1 seconds or 1 minute which is technically more like a kick than a ban.
