Although I agree with your conclusion, I don't agree with your reasoning.

The vast majority of neg reps I've read relate more to the poster's style rather than their content.

RE: Auto-ban, banning based on rep
If we banned people based on their rep, we'd basically just be booting people for being unpopular.

Not on my watch, and I can say with confidence, not on Moms' watch either. That's just not how we roll. Wink

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Oh I agree.

I know I can be a very confrontational poster which has stirred up a couple of small witch hunts against me, so if the members were given the power to ban someone it would snowball from 3 or 4 people complaining to each other in IMs to a recruiting center of like-minded individuals who could ban anyone they wanted.

Since I am not very popular here, I would be banned.

Sad

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.

I prefer the auto-ban where the one who makes a thread about banning people gets automatically banned. Big Grin

Speaking of Moms, why isn't she an admin again?

Knowing her simply because she prefers her name to be pretty and purple than green.
