Re: A humble proposal. While I'm with you on the generalities, this is a forum, not an imageboard where stuff slides off quickly, and the crap very quickly. The very fact of it being a different medium means the way it is 'managed' has to be different. Post some things on 4chan and the system will automatically instaban you for days - that wouldn't work here. Say something that pisses off an OP more than once and get kickbanned in some IRC channels. Forums left as a free-for-all rapidly deteriorate till the only people left are the turds that refuse to flush. Forums require a diet of less fat and more fibre than other mediums.
