Random information on the term “Ban”:
A ban is a formal or informal prohibition of something. Bans are formed for the prohibition of activities within a certain political territory. Some see this as a negative act (equating it to a form of censorship or discrimination) and others see it as maintaining the “status quo”. Some bans in commerce are referred to as embargoes. Ban is also used as a verb similar in meaning to “to prohibit”.
In current English usage, ban is mostly synonymous with prohibition. Historically, Old English (ge)bann is a derivation from the verb bannan “to summon, command, proclaim” from an earlier Common Germanic *bannan “to command, forbid, banish, curse”. The modern sense “to prohibit” is influenced by the cognate Old Norse banna “to curse, to prohibit” and also from Old French ban, ultimately a loan from Old Frankish, meaning “outlawry, banishment”.
The Indo-European etymology of the Germanic term is from a root *bha- meaning “to speak”. Its original meaning was magical, referring to utterances that carried a power to curse.
