( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I completely agree with most of the users here.
The /ignore feature is absolutely a good idea, though it is sad to have to use it.
I don't believe that a /ban feature is needed at the moment, since it has only been one incident.
And if it becomes a more common occurance on this site (chatterbox abuse), which I don't think will happen, a /ban could be implimented.
Besides, how many users currently use this site? And only 1 abused the chatterbox? And now vroom is going through all this work because of one jerk?
I say leave it alone for now (keep the /ignore though) and see how everything goes.
One jerk shouldn't have this site putting up all kinds of new features to stop it.
And has masturbator even been here in a while? Seems jjhorner really scared the hell out of him! :-)
Summary: At this time, I think:
  • everything should be left as it is.
  • /ignore is great
  • /ban is not yet needed
  • If abuse of the chatterbox occurs, use /ignore.
  • If abuse of chatterbox increases too much, add a /ban feature.

    But then, this is just the opinion of a scribe :)
