The only people who are on permenant server bans are people whose behavior disrupts the smooth operation of the Spring lobby server community on a recurring basis (spamming channels/pm, rascism etc etc) and only as a last recourse after warnings and short-term bans. I dont see why having a moderation team that is capable
Yes a moderator *could* go nuts and start permabanning people for no reason, but they would quickly have their powers removed and the bans lifted.

If you want to host a game where ally d-gunning and combombing is the 'normal' behavior go right ahead, no-one is going to stop you. Such behavior would NOT be considered disruptive in that context. Same applies for 'build-time' (where you all agree to not attack for 15 [or whatever you choose] minutes)
You as the host have the power to kick players who don't follow any 'special' host rules, and thats cool too, no moderator is ever going to turn around and say "you can't do that"
To be completely and brutally honest: I do not see what exactly the problem you have with the current system is, if there is a problem with a specific member of the moderation team, report them and it will be dealt with.
Remember that the SY's OWN the server, anyone who runs a server without reserving the right and ability to restrict access to that server needs their head examining.
