That doesn't make sense, "purgatory" means a waiting period where your fate is decided. It would make much more sense if Purgatory/Suspended were the other way around

I could very well be mistaken, but I think purgatory wasn't always there. At first, I believe, it was just banned, suspended and warned. So if a user would get suspended, there's only two ways to go. But sometimes a user doesn't deserve to be banned yet, but a warning is too lenient, so for that reason purgatory was added. It probably would have caused confusion if we would have swapped suspension and purgatory around, so it just stayed like this.

After all, it's just semantics. ;)

In a sense, purgatory still is a waiting period where your fate is decided. It takes an awful lot to get purg'd in the first place, so it gives you an extended period of time to determine what you want to do. You can continue trolling/offending/flaming/etc and get banned or you can follow the rules. The only difference is that you get to decide your own fate rather than having it decided for you.
