how do you all feel about preventive banning?

    preventative banning is banning someone on the hunch that they may violate forum rules in some future post so instead of waiting for that to happen, ban them now so that doesn't have to happen?

    No.. I'd say warn them and keep an eye on them.. maybe they just made a bad start and have to adjust a little.. like a over enthousiastic puppy that keeps knocking things over but that ends up sleeping at your feet after getting your newspaper ;)

    Don't like it.... it's like putting people in jail in case they want to commit a crime.

    No... you cannot possibly assume that a person is guilty before the person did anything... what are you going to stereotype them on.... thier nickname? age? sex?

    you used to have a much more spontaneous and open minded attitude chief,
    does this forum or any other part of the world need more 'thought police"?

    but you should ban that bug_mam a.s.a.p!
    from the threats he made in his post, you could cause him to make an EARTHSHATTERING KABOOM!!

    Karma police, arrest this man, he talks in maths
    He buzzes like a fridge, he’s like a detuned radio
    Karma police, arrest this girl, her hitler hairdo, is making me feel ill
    And we have crashed her party
    This is what you get, this is what you get
    This is what you get, when you mess with us

    Karma police, I’ve given all I can, it’s not enough
    I’ve given all I can, but we’re still on the payroll
    This is what you get, this is what you get
    This is what you get, when you mess with us
    And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
    And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself

    For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself

    Bug Man has been banned over and over and keeps comming back with slightly different names. Apparantly they can't IP ban him, maybe he uses a public PC or he has a dynamic IP address or something. He and I hardly ever cross paths so I'm gonna stay out of this, although I do have my opinion on the matter ;)

    Some of my other ideas are like on Fridays, Interval Illusion seems to pretty consistently have a bad day from not taking her meds or something and on that day seems to have some pretty outrageous posts so I was thinking about banning her every Friday. Ol' Hippie 54 is a really happy guy but on Saturdays he's a little too happy and so he brings everybody up which leads to an all around let down on Sundays when everyone starts coming down so I was thinking of banning him on Saturdays. And too, somedays there are some names I don't recognize but the way the wind is blowing when I read their posts suggests I should ban them on the spot. Hope everyone is ready for the new changes.

    maybe we should ask Skip for an Idiots Forum for all the idiots?

    I will only agree if HippieTrippyHickie comes back.
