Banned Deviants are the counterpart to Deactivated Accounts, with the likeness being that their username is crossed out. Before being banned, a Deviant would have to cause several small violations to the ToS or some rather large violations in order to be removed from site. After being banned, you may apply for a Ban Appeal, but Deviants are let off with this exclusively in very rare cases. Once banned, the user is blocked from commenting, favouriting, uploading, chatting, posting on the forums, starting forum threads, giving badges, joining groups, creating groups, voting on polls, writing journals, buying points, spending points, donating points, giving critiques and several other main site features. You are still able to log into your account and check your messages, normally Deviation stacks.

Bans are the infinite versions of Suspensions. Although it is usually against the policies, these are usually worked around with a sockpuppet account used to evade a ban.
