Because they like being dramatic?

It's not even close to being a death penalty.

I'm not against using that metaphor as such but it's just not correct to me.

Example for why I think "death" is wrong to use as a metaphor for being permabanned on one forum on the worldwide web :
My twin sister died a long time ago. As much as I would love to get into contact with her, I can't. She stopped existing.
If I want to talk to Mikey, there would be ways to contact him (he's active on msn for starters).

Comparing a permaban on one forum with death is ludicrous.
