    Not really, the point of the function is to attract the attentions of the mods to posts you think need dealt with.

    Comes back to how visible infractions are. I still see no reason why an infraction should be between the mods and the infracted poster.

    I disagree that the sole intention of the function is to attract the attention of the mods. It also exists to ensure an avenue exists for censure without anyone resorting to slanging matches on the forum - which the current set up fails to achieve.

    Anyway, it's all Greek to me.

    Is it possible to come up with a system whereby we all ignore the suspected Precam multi and hope he gets bored and goes away? I know it could be difficult informing everyone of this (and possibly unfair if its not), but when there's a fair degree of certainty maybe just saying nothing to him at all will have the desired effect.

    The cap of invisibility won't work I'm afraid as their are plenty of denizens to quote him, and upheld his views.

    Yeah, that's true. I was thinking it might be difficult to not hear from him at all. Don't want to jump the gun...but it's possible there's another one out there already (or two counting the other mentioned earlier perhaps).

    The mods could always try and apply the forum atmosphere clause consistently and give bans to posters who are only here to troll.

    I got a month for being a **** during the England-India series; how on earth Shivfan avoided one for his constant trolling or how a blatantly antagonistic user like Bun avoided the same punishment is beyond me.

    Yep, it does smack of an oddly partizan view, often it may look like a person is a particular Gorgon amongst us, but it becomes irrevelant when they're just being a troll anyway, they almost seem to be defended because they're not pre-cam, oh the irony, but that seems to forget their post are inflamatory ****e, whomever they may be.

    Mind you, you deserve banning as did gimp, (for being a biased prod ****, and a tiresome plastic scouser) but for reasons other then this, both of you need to have all those bans rescinded.

    Previous incarnations had said really vile stuff, how can you ban people for rebelling against people that you thought, and were proved right, about them. It's really poor.

    I've previously all but pointed out on the open forum that I agree with this (minus the specific examples). It's something I think the mod team would be very willing to take on board if we felt we had the support of the wider community to just start turfing less good posters who are a net loss to discussion here, but we'd need a lot of faith which I don't think we really have at the moment.

    However - and I don't mean to pick him at all here - a good counter-example to this idea is flibbertyjibber. He's someone I would have forum-atmosphere-banned a little bit after he first arrived, but the more lenient system we have allowed him to get a few infractions (and a light ban IIRC?), figure out how the community worked and improve his posting. Now I wouldn't dream of banning him as he's a valued part of the forum.

    Bollox, Bun was never a valued member of the forum, he was like Omm, constantly inflammatory, that's the comparison you need. Personally would rather flibbertyjibber got banned then 27 buns remained, which they have.

    Answer my post PRince, why are people being punished for calling a spade a spade.
