A suggestion for restoring sanity to this forum
Feb 22, 2012

We all know how trashy this forum has become... all the result of a few posters that make sharing and learning a very difficult task.

We all know how to [ignore] one of these vicious posters... I've done it four times. But their constant presence still poisons some threads.

How about this:

(1) Once a poster has reached some number of individual "ignores", say 4, the forum owners flag the offender.

(2) The forum owners will ascertain the legitimacy of the "ignores". If they are the result of untoward behavior (erratic comments, persistent attacks, berating others, etc.), the offender will be warned.

(3) Once such offender reaches a certain higher number of confirmed violations, say 6, he/she is permanently barred from this specific forum. He/she can still go poison some other form.

Some tweaking may be needed because there's always some way around the rules. Plus, the forum owners may not have the time or the inclination to do this... but boy would it make life more enjoyable.
