That is a false statement. Many people have been banned from Uncommon Descent for reasons far a cry from "incivility".
I have been banned from Uncommon Descent three times:
1. Pointing out correctly (on-topic) that Scientific American is not a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
2. For arguing reasonably (on-topic) that an arm can act as a sling, such as slinging mud or rocks, or as a windmill pitch in softball.
3. For rightly defending (off-topic but off-site) a science teacher from unfair accusations of lying. Those making the accusations (off-topic but on-site) were allowed to continue their mockery.
There are many such examples.
Oh for Christs sake ......kairosfocus you are a complete wanker.
ITS OK kairosfocus THAT HOMO Zachriel HAS BEEN BANNED AGAIN FOR SAYING SOMETHING ON TOPIC AND ON TARGET.
BUT SHOW ME UP AGAIN AND YOU'RE OUTA HERE HOMO. -dt
The conservative has but little to fear from the man whose reason is the servant of his passions, but let him beware of him in whom reason has become the greatest and most terrible of the passions.These are the wreckers of outworn empires and civilisations, doubters, disintegrators, deicides.Haldane
