I'm sure the people posting with Banana don't go and check if the forum rules are updated each time they post, but maybe they should?
It still is.
The problem is some people are bumping their threads to write banana (hence "banana bumping") instead of editing it into the original post like they're supposed to. Just like some people are still deleting prices and replacing them with "sold", or erasing the message/item entirely.
As for checking the rules, this has been announced several times and a full year passed without the rule being enforced (only warnings). There's a limit to how dense people are allowed to be before they get slapped.
