in reply to Chatterbox abuse and possible remedies

Following the theme of the rest of the site, it might be interesting to implement a karma-type feature, so chatterbox users can /++ and /-- others, and then you only see messages from users with a karma above your personal tolerated level.. Of course, /++ and /-- would have to be XP-biased so users with a higher XP have more influence, eliminating (or at least greately reducing) the effects of abuse.

    I don't think that a personal tolerated level is such a good idea. As a community, we should all be open to new users. The karma XPs sound to me more like coolness status rather than expertise status. If I were a newcomer to this site, I'd like to start off with the same rights as everyone else and be able to be heard.

    Maybe a global ban for a temporary ammount of time would be the best solution as vroom offered.
