Auto-ban, banning based on rep
I thought this would be interesting, what if the admins could set an auto-ban to where it would trigger at a certain negative rep level reached. I think a -20 would probably provide a quick demise to a few of these trolls.

I know this wouldn't be implemented, but still.....

The ban decision won't be left up to the members.

Don't see that happening.

How about a variant, they hit a certain negative rep level and then they would be limited to 1-5 posts a day.

I think between myself and Stark, we do a pretty good job of getting rid of the noxious trolls.

We leave the not as bad ones for the forum to use as chew toys.

That's been suggested before.

The 'pitchforks and torches' system was preferred by the previous Admins.

There have been some troublemakers who have been limited in one way or another. Our current PITA seems content to crap all over one thread so he's not in danger at this point.

Yeah, a lot of trolls seem to like smelling their own BS.

RE: Auto-ban, banning based on rep
The problem with this idea, is that rep is given based on opinion of the posters views more often than not, so its not an exactly fair way to ban people.
