How long is too long

Why are players allowed to persist in a banned state for weeks on end?

I had a player who got banned while I was in active conflict. Now I cannot continue my expansion because he is banned which is supposed to be a punishment for his breaking of the rules but is, in effect, punishing me for playing fair.

Am I really going to have to wait for his premium to run out?

If I were allowed to continue capping his villages it would encourage players to accept the terms of their punishment to get out of the banned state. As it is they can sit until they go barb without any negative effects.

Yes I also feel that sometimes the punishment for cheating also punishes the attackers.

Finding a fair solution is much harder than seeing the problem of course.
But I've not seen anyone remain banned for more than 14 days.

Frankly I prefer a draconian approach. If you cheat and get caught the ban only goes one way. It encourages faster responses and it makes sure the punishment will deter the crime.
