Some forums have a member-ban appeals process.

This is where banned members can contact the forum (usually through email) and appeal their ban.

We could look at it almost like a legal court system where people try to appeal their sentences.

Do any of you practice this on your forum?

If no, would you consider it, and why or why not?

If yes, what does your member ban appeals system consist of?
