Punishments for Law-Breakers?
At Mount Sinai, G-d established within the Torah of Moses that each of the 7 Noahide Commandments includes some aspect of severe transgression that will make the deliberate Gentile transgressor liable to death by the hand of G-d.

If there was a Torah-based court that was so empowered by the law of the land (which has not existed in the world for more than at least 1,040 years), such a court had G-d's permission to carry out this punishment if the transgressor was tried and convicted in a proper trial (in which he had ample opportunity to defend his case). We do not expect this to happen at any time in the future, because the Messianic Era is immanent, and in that blessed time, no one will feel any temptation to commit such transgressions.

Rather, there are compelling reasons, that can be communicated in a way of friendship and sincere concern, for why a Gentile should accept and observe the Noahide Code (for example, so that he may establish a true personal relationship with G-d, and earn eternal spiritual reward in the future World to Come).

The Noahide you mentioned, who made that statement on that forum, was probably unaware or in denial of the fact that the Noahide Commandments only exist within the context of the Torah of Moses that was given by G-d at Mount Sinai.
