    We shouldn't ban people except for instances of extreme filth. That's what they do at du. We have to be better. This is not a criticism of any specific mod act, just a general thought.

    on the other hand: who the hell am I?

    If you ban every nitwit, you'll have nobody to debate with, and what fun is it to just slap each other on the back and congratulate yourselves for thinking alike?

    We're not supposed to agree in public. My bad.

    But, at the same time, having been here from the very beginning of this board, I know how debates can dissolve from friendly disagreement to personal attacks very quickly. Sometimes banning is simply necessary, I think.

    putting in time? this isn't a good old boys club. nor should it be. WE should defeat idiots with sound arguing instead of abusing mod powers. I understand that using the hierarchy and time served is the only way some people can inflate their intelligence in their own mind, it's just sad.

    I repeat, there was no issue with any specific mod action. Just a general thought on the kind of board we want to have.
