Besides, it'd be dull if we didn't have trolls or dumb every once in a while.

I mean anyone dumb enough to get mistaken for a troll is no real loss.

Point taken.

Not necessarily. It may increase the likelihood of a mod actually using this rather than a ban (it sounded like this was a main issue, correct me if I'm wrong). In which case the person in question is quite literally put on hold and cannot access any other part of the forum (including pms and profile pages) other than that one thread/section. So the person is basically banned, but it gives the mods all the time in the world to discuss a ban in order to save people (like Res Republica).

The way I see it, both parties get their way; members would now be more safe while mods can thoroughly talk through a ban (although in some cases is not needed, I realize this, but at least there is something being done and we all still have our freedom of speech and not just an illusion as was mentioned earlier in the thread, and we don't need to change everything about the forum).

It's a pointless step. There are already ways to limit posting short of a ban.

If the FT hasn't got the cojones to wield the ban hammer, get someone who does.

What if a person was just extremely stupid and/or ignorant, but not malicious and therefore only seeming to be a troll?

Trolling is identified by behavior, not motivation. There is no cure for stupid.

"The Forum Team" isn't in charge of swinging the ban hammer - Stark alone is.

And who is it that you think should be banned now Chas? I'm losing track.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
