I agree with you, PhilsFan!

Why stop at just banning the people with right-wing views though? Why not ban everyone from the internet entirely?

Let's be ambitious here and get some blue-sky thinking going.

Joking, obvs, but the point I'm making is that it depends on context.

On the other hand, freedom of speech.

Best wishes from the funny farm!




I would never, EVER call you "rampant"...

Speaking of renewing suspensions and/or bannings for repeated infractions, I'm pretty sure registering a new alter when you've been banned from the forum (twice) is against the rules here.

The banned/suspended users thread was one of the best on the site, but I understand why it's no longer in use.

Did Sicy mention a U2 song she disliked?

I believe Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car may have been the offending song. It's one of U2girl's favourites. Shit can get real.

I don't know what the answer is, I see benefits of the current system and the suggested alternatives.

I immediately recognized the new system as what Metafilter does, and they're a site known for interesting, productive, and often hilarious discussion. A great idea, but I have to agree with some of the other comments - that level of moderation probably isn't needed here.

The one thing I loved about FYM was when someone would post something that was offensive, a personal attack, as was described by Diemen, and the community would unite, left,,,,right.,,,,republicans,,,,,democrats supported each other about stupidity.....

Cats and Dogs living together... Anyway.... I am a libertarian, and I do not support censorship.

In the past I have tried having one on one PMs to discuss problematic posts before taking action in the thread, or as an accompaniment to it, but to be honest it wasn't all that effective.
right, like in Hockey // when you get put in ;the "time out" box..but what od I know buut Candian sports, ii mean really...

Power Play..la la la on the radio now -- today' hits ::
