I would like to first thank you vroom for asking our
opinions -- you always do, and it is (at least on my part)
in reply to Chatterbox abuse and possible remedies
Having been one of the people waiting for
masturbator's garbage to clear out of the chatterbox,
I believe the ignore feature is pretty useful and should
stay in as a feature. It's a little sad, yes, but the perl
monks world isn't much different from the real world,
except in the real world it probably takes a few more
mouse clicks to get a restraining order.
I don't see a need yet for giving out /ban authority,
that seems like too much check and too little balance.
But perhaps in the future it will be needed if the site
continues to grow and attract attention.
