RE: Self ban.
Because then there'd be campaigns by people to ban others that they didn't like by encouraging everyone to neg them. You'd have people negged by others who hadn't even read their posts simply because someone was pressuring them to do so by PM.

The concept has been visited before and, while it sounds reasonable in theory, it would never work in practice.

Plus, as has been said before, bans are decided on rule breaks, not popularity.

I dislike every part of this idea. If we are going to do this we might as well hang a "No Theists" sign on the front.

In fact, I think you're right. This would have worked in principle (not in practice) when I first joined and reps weren't given out lightly. Now that they're thrown around far more casually, this idea doesn't even work in theory.

RE: Self ban.
Glad I wasn't the only one. Unsure

A person very dear to me was badly hurt through a misunderstanding and miscommunication. For this, I am sorry, and he knows it. That said, any blaming me for malicious intent is for the birds. I will not wear some scarlet letter, I will not be anybody's whipping girl, and I will not lurk in silence.

You know this to be true?
