An easy way to stop from getting banned is to follow OpenFeints' "Forum Rules and Guidelines" & "Forum Survival Guide", which are both locked and are both stickies. The Forum Rules & Guidelines have all the rules of OpenFeint in one thread, so read it throughly, maybe read it once or twice, just to get it through your head.
The Forum Survival Guide is a complete guide on how to survive on OpenFeint, it will give you such things as what not to do, and Forum Lingo, such as the word "OF" which on OpenFeint is referred to as "OpenFeint. Try to read both, to get the gist of everything and how to make the most of your OpenFeint.
