Governmental restrtictions placed on an affending party, typically another nation when we speak of them at a federal level.

For example, North Korea used to misbehave, so varying degrees and types of sanctions have been agreed upon to restrict their ability to import/export certain goods (usually energy [like petro] or weapon making materials) so that they feel pressure to stop misbehaving. Should they change behavior, sanctions also have ocnditions where their removal would occur.

Thing of them as punishment at a global government level, on one nation from many. Sanctions can occur in any realm, but that is where the word is most often discussed.

Your point is valid, but delivering an answer using examples can be more impactful and lead to some great discussions. Being new here, adopting the customs of the land are certainly top of mind, but hearing some feedback on the topic, sanctions in this case, is certainly well in order and lacking in many other forums. Thank you for leading and explaining the ways of the goat, though.

I like the idea of asking people that are part of a community I like first before reverting to using Goolag and biased Wikifagia; it gives us more of a reason to use this site over others, thus helping this site grow little by little and denying big tech their ad dough. Besides as the rules state, I "came here for an answer, don't send [me] somewhere else."
