In response to Jason Stix Buckley
Uh oh. That might be bad news for me.
When I ban someone for life, I move them from the users group to a group I created called "read only." That group is basically the same thing as guest, but a member (no posting privs, etc ... just read). I do that as an extra safety net in case, for some reason, the banning gets removed or I am using the same database 30+ years later when the "lifetime ban" expires.
I also do this to people's accounts that request their accounts removed.
I used to do the same thing and never had a problem. I quit doing it when Couch said not to, but I don't know why they have to be in one of those 4 groups. I thought that since everything is permission based, it wouldn't matter what 'group' they were in?
