Stay away from posting any meme whatsoever. There's a good chance they'll get you banned.

I've found that it's helpful to just be super passive aggressive and subtle when you're insulting people.

There's also a rule that I apply both to real life and to NeoGAF.com which states that you shouldn't say something unless it's more funny than it is mean. This is usually a very solid rule to live by, but there are certain subjects that you're better off just not mentioning at all no matter how hilarious your comment may be. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you which subjects those are. Drink plenty of fluids and always know where the nearest towel is. Don't panic.

I've found that there are usually two reasons:

a) being an idiot by continually shitting up threads
b) sticking to a certain "subsection" of the forum exclusively

Most people have been banned for the first reason, but there is also a healthy amount of representatives from the latter.

Keep a low profile.

If you troll and put forth disingenuous beliefs, remember that many people and perhaps mods will take your posts at face value. Only ironically espouse beliefs that would not get you banned even if those beliefs were sincere.

Keep insults to a minimum.

Posting abstinence is the only guaranteed why to not catch the banned. But if you must post, to minimize banned exposure you should practice safe post control. Wrap up your post with a quick ToS check. In the heat of the moment it can be difficult to remember but it becomes second nature once you get into the habit of doing it. If you're going to post like an adult, you must bear the responsiblity like one and protect yourself and others.

Blame Space you're a cyber bully what do you care about being banned? You're just going to bully someone.
