    The moderator rules and consequences of disuse of the forum are more than enough to sort out the wheat from the chaff.
    If you misbehave you are warned, if you keep misbehaving you are thread banned. After a while the big hammer comes down for repeated rule breaking…. Simple really.

    Actually one thing. If you do it, own it. If you break the rules and get called on it, don't whine and blame the mods. Just own it and move on. I have been thread banned a few times and they were all justified. We get a lot of leeway here to vent our spleen and have a go at others because we all like to do it from time to time. So it's hard to take a poster seriously if he or she complains because they got a TB after many many violations. Everyone put on your big boy pants.

    I am very serious about this poll. Do we as a forum prefer the endless TB's / Warnings to try to curb the conduct - or would we prefer that the mods instead do a quick 24 hrs for these folks right off the bat - to try to get this sniping to stop so we can get on to political discussion?
    You should have left the poll up longer.


    I like the 2 TB, followed by 24 hour suspension.

    It sends the wrong message out to posters taking advantage of the little slap on the wrist, on Facebook I received a 30 day ban for 5 seemingly trivial posts I made over the period of 3 months.

    The 30 day ban is a long one, I enjoy posting on Facebook with my friends and groups, the ban has shown me for every action there is a reaction and I shouldn’t post without thinking about more clearly what I’m posting.
    RIP Wes

    I should point out that we have some members that report every little tiny infraction.. so if you make things to severe there will be in short order a war on reporting between the Moderate side and the leftist side. Like kids in a tattletale contest. Chaos will ensue
