neither. I am asking why there is a difference in the terms, not what is the difference. I get that a ban from chat is generaly shorter, and a ban from the website is generally longer, but otherwise, there's no difference.
Interesting point. I've never seen it that way before.
I get that, and all, but it's still the same thing, technically. They both involve restricting the access of a user to the site, whether it be the whole thing or a part.
