The blog post says account suspensions will be from 2 to 7 days. "...if the problem behaviors continue beyond the timed suspension, your account is very likely to be permanently deleted."
This user is suspended until Oct. 25 (as I write this, that is 28 days away). If the offense was so egregious as to warrant a month long suspension, why isn't the account just deleted?
An even more extreme example is this user, suspended until Feb. 4, 2011 (as I write this, that is 364 days away).
