i thought this was a relevant thread, so i resurrected it.
let the debate continue, gentlemen!!
My experience of that sort of percentage system is that it increases the tension instead of relieving it, which is rather in order.
Bans are hostile and hostility breeds hostility.
To get a tasty result think carrot, not stick.
Yeak but try beating someone with a carrot, it just breaks up in your hand.
A good idea to tell if somebody has gone to far.
I think if this was implemented there would be no need of bans as everyone would voluntarily steer clear of the forum altogether.
No. Things were perfectly fine when those rules were in place.
You know what I could never figure out, when someone replies to a thread it ends up saying the threads title then by whoever posted, like
Kill'm all by sderenzi
The thing is the threads not by the last person to reply to it, so what sense does it make in saying BY this person?! Kinda confusing.
Isn't that a matter for another thread, sderenzi?
As for this thread, I'm not sure where I stand, but if forced to decide, I would decide against this.
im happy with james using his judgement rather than having to enforce a strict set of rules
For what it's worth I think all racial epithets should be banned. 2 strikes you're out for good. That would drive the wannabe nazis out and improve the atmosphere here.
FULLY agreed. this is my biggest beef, actually.
I think that starting to ban people from this site on the basis of content, is a bad idea for the most part. We could ban such things that are socially unaccptable to us, racism, personal threats and whatnot of that nature. But to ban people on the basis of swearing or insulting another member would be insane. This website, from my understanding of it, is a place to bring up questions, get answers and debate over the topic. There is no reason why we couldnt say something like.... I can not believe that you do not hold the mental capacity to understand the Fuko argument of biopower and are wasting the intellectual communitie's time with your random crap. Or to say thats stupid and must be retarded to not understand my points. but in all, the site should be open to most anything we want to say.
this website is so leniant that there is not much point in debating, james has good judgement and hardly ever bans people for content and usually it is on a temp ban
Please dear god, for the love of mankind, I will become a true believer if you start deleting random posts of Ronnie.
robots are only allowed to believe in "robot jesus".
i myself am a "robot jew", we believe that robot jesus was well programmed, but he had a few security flaws that indicate that he was not our robot messiah.
self righteousness is a stinky cologne.
i forgot how much better than the rest of us you are.
