That seems to be the case to me too. Seems like with recent bannings, you click on the link to their profile and you get:Except that they don't.
Only members banned prior to the software change on May 4 get a line through the name. More recent banned memberd simply get their profiles deleted.
Oops! We ran into some problems.

I preferred the old system where it was more immediately obvious a user was banned, but it's not my forum.
