4. Any experience with IC, BC or RP? I've been playing with these mods since beta 1.8
5. Even been banned from a server? Not knowingly.
Explanation: At one point I joined a vanilla creative server clearly run by a bunch of little kids, and I was unfortunate enough to log in at the same time as a griefer. When people noticed griefing, the "staff" just started spamming the chat saying "look for the griefer" and "OMG there's a griefer!". Briefly before the "staff" spammed about a griefer, I was having trouble getting into fly mode due to lag, and looked like a noob, which added to my suspicion that the staff would call me the greifer. After about 10 seconds of the "staff" spamming the chat, I decided that the server was not at all for me and left, never to come back. I say "not knowingly" because the little kids running the server could easily have banned me without bothering to check logs, even though I was an innocent bystander.
I launched into this story because I realize you can easily check if someone has been banned or not, and if I did get banned from that server, it would look bad if I answered the question with a simple "nope" and you saw my username on a global bans list banned for griefing, as you could easily assume I was a liar and a griefer. If I wasn't actually banned from that server, and/or that server didn't use a global bans list, I probably hurt my case, but it's better to give the truth plus a full explanation unnecessarily than it is to assume they didn't use a global banning system and be wrong.
Also, just to explain my absence the past couple weeks, I've had family in town, and it just isn't nice to disappear into the computer room while company is at the other end of the house chatting. I'll also get to work on the wiki in some down time, and I apologize for disappearing.
