    I think you may have misinterpreted what was said. There's no way humanly possible that members can report every violation by every member before we take the report seriously. If that were the case everyone, including us, should just throw in the towel now ;)

    In regards to thread bans being possible? Very possible. How? By doing exactly what you are proposing. If members want to compile a list of links from the thread that shows Coyote (known trouble maker) openly violating the thread guidelines. We can easily remove her from it. The more info we have the better. Staff simply don't have time to wade through and entire thread so if the info is right at their finger tips they can just go "Yeah 3 offending posts, time to remove them from the thread and issue a warning"

    Sounds like a plan Could that be added to the guidelines? And don't use Coyote for an example LOL--she's one of my favorite people here and I can't imagine her EVER getting reported much less thread banned. :)

    Question about the CDZ if you please C_K:

    Does it have to be specifically debate?

    I'd like to see a thread sharing Katrina pictures/stories but without the relentless partisan bickering over "it's your guys' fault, not my guys' fault". But it would be storytelling and illustration, not actual debate.

    Could I do that?

    Are the members here actually willing to participate in a structured debate, that is, one comprised of dialectically structured arguments? I don't think they are.
