Can people be entirely banned from Gentoo?

- What would such a ban include? Some ideas -- the person could not:
  - Post to any gentoo mailing list;
  - Post to gentoo bugzilla;
  - Participate in #gentoo- IRC channels; 
  - Contribute to gentoo (hence my corner case of a security fix) except 
    perhaps through a proxy;

- Why would we do it?

- Under whose authority would it happen?

- Would it be reversible? What conditions would cause this?

  Since the banned person couldn't participate in Gentoo, we'd never 
  know whether anything changed.

- How would one appeal this? Would there be a chance to respond before
  the ban?

- Would moderating the gentoo-dev mailing list obsolete this concept?
