    Dealing with banned members/account recreators: What's your opinion?

    I don't know all this user's incarnations, however there has been a member who has been banned multiple times. He or she continues to register and pulls the same stuff that previously got them banned over and over again.

    It's a good philosophy, imo, to have a board where banning is the last option. Differences of opinion, drama, discussion, arguments are all part of life and often make life more exciting if not more enjoyable.

    Here's the question: This user/member... they have a characteristic or recognizable attitude and their general tactic is to post "Hi" and "Heya" or something similar in the new members thread to bump up their post count initially and then to also post what I'd call snide remarks in BB Gossip and Open Chat.

    I've asked them to stick to Anything Goes where, hey, anything goes. But more often than not they've replied with more venom or disrespect to other members. Past remarks have stated that they refuse to "kiss ass" and that they're "keeping it real".

    Okay, where'd the question go?

    There's a poll included (please vote), but the gist of it is this:

    Should mods, if they recognize this individual, simply and automatically ban them or should each incarnation be treated as a new member and go through the infraction and eventual ban process?

    So the choices include a) Immediate Nuking or b) Slow and Tempered Justice.

    I include the following posts taken out of the context of their original thread but as an indication that more than one individual has had enough of this member, a seeming repeat offender.

    That's three different members who I'm guessing will choose Automatic Nuking Without Remorse. And here's a quote from a recent PM I received that seems relevant to this thread/poll.

    I've erased the name and rephrased things to protect the person's identity, however the gist of their sentiment remains.

    I enjoy this site a lot! There are some very cool and interesting people here. A while back members were unnecessarily rude to each other all the time. That definitely took the fun out for me, but this place has a whole new atmosphere now. Minus the trolls.
    Note: This thread and the accompanying poll is not intended to create board policy but simply to offer members an opportunity to voice their opinion. Thank you for participating.

    I think if I were to get sentenced to jail time and legally changed my name they would still send me to jail. So if someone gets banned I see it the same way, why does a name change mean a 2nd, 3rd, 4th chance?

    Very good point. Thank you for voting and for voicing your opinion.

    Looking forward to a counterpoint.

    there is no counterpoint. first sign of a troll in a thread not labeled anything goes. (including open chat) immediate ban. anything goes is for the douchebag trolls. outside of that. they gots to go

    lol at jlacap putting in his 2 cents.

    Sometimes trolling can be funny, especially when it manages to brings out the darker side of members that we don't normally see.

    I must admit, I was getting a laugh out of RedDog. He was getting quite pissed for a while there lol.

    plain and simple it USED to be fun to hang out here. when i first joined you could literally be on here all day without having to deal with even one asshole troll. we had Johnnny but he was a peach compared to the shit floating around in the bowl here now. a lot of people left because they don't want to deal with assholes in their leisure time.

    or you can kiss the trolls ass trying to be popular and make friends hoping maybe it will end up like some oprah movie of the week and everyone will cry and hold hands. meanwhile the troll will be happy and 100 members won't. giving a troll 45 chances is like letting rapists out of jail to rape again. shit has a zero learning curve.

    and keep in mind that while you are tolerating a troll it's putting the rest of us through what feels about as pleasant as the Judas Cradle

    That's funny. The troll accused me of just that—that I was infracting them in order to kiss ass and in an attempt to be popular.

    Can't win at times, eh? lol

    My goal is a board that runs smoothly. I noticed this individual was back and created this thread to begin a discussion. Thank you for taking part.

    The poll's been up just two hours and there are 6 votes for auto-ban and 1 vote for "Maybe."

    As I said in the original post, this isn't to create policy however it may give an idea of the opinion among board members.

    I'd like to see 100 votes in this thread to get an idea of what a general consensus might be. Again, thanks for sharing your opinion.

    i don't think it's saying much for any forum when people say, "gee, i can be as big an ass as i want to be here and you guys won't ban me like that other shitty forum." do we really WANT a forum full of big assholes? it doesn't seem like rocket science. i think you're over complicating it.

    What about new members need to be a member for lets say 1 or 2 months to be able to enter anything goes or open chat, 50 posts is too easy to achieve.
