Ok, someone could always just answer the simple question I made but I guess I will have to go a tremendous hassle myself. No hard feelings though.
The thing is that inactivating and banning are 2 different things.
An inactivated user can request a new activation, a banned user can't and it isn't necessary since the account remains active (unless you also deactivate it) : the user can log in but gets the notice that he's banned, whereas an inactivated user can't log in. Once you delete a banned or inactive user, the account is gone they can reuse the mailaccount to make a new account.
A ban is either permanent or for a set timeperiod (you decide), inactivation is until you activate the account, or ... the user requests a new activation mail (if you allow that).
There's also another way to limit what a user can do: add the user to a group with all permissions set to NEVER.
