Considering on the forum you can have more than one login, you can be a cheater and skew the vote. You can also champion a cause that such an offense isn't serious.
Furthermore, when we get a new AOP punishments are probably going to be handed out differently.

PLEASE STOP HURTING ME!!! I have mild down syndrome and problems relate to other people. It's not fair because also I am new! If you had to wear a man-diaper and ask for help, you would feel the same, so PLEASE STOP!!!

But it is such sweet (verbal) gamahuche you perform upon my ear.

Thanks for everyone who has posted their thoughts and opinions.
My hope here was not to have you decide on what the punishments would be but to determine what the players would consider an appropriate punishment for the action. Some feel the options aren't harsh enough, that's totally fine, others feel it is too harsh. Ultimately you are all right. I will have to listen to the player and make a decision. I want to try and be as consistent as possible, that's the point.
I also what to tell you that I want people to play. Yes, I want them to play without breaking the rules, but I do want players. Deletion, for me, isn't really conducive to this. Rather, removal of combat xp, or something that might entice a player to play more while still indicating to them they've stepped out of line is worth considering. Does deletion have its place, absolutely, and maybe this is one of those cases...certainly not on the first offense.
What I want to try to do is get these rules in place so the next AoP who comes in has them to reference. I'd like to develop a matrix so I am consistent and so the person who follows me can try to remain consistent too. Whether this happens or not, who knows, but I can at least try.
The main point of all this is: I want to treat players fairly, as best as possible, when handing out punishments. Yes there will need to be deviation in some cases, but as I've said before a benchmark allows for there to be appropriate ramping up/down of a punishment based on the nature of it.
So, this has helped, a lot, and I appreciate it.
