RE: Self ban.
I`ll be honest to you lot.

I disaprove of the negative rep option.

It is potentialy stigmatising and can in my opinion lead to bullying.

Do you think that happens now? That people PM one another to get others to rep one way or another...

I have no idea. I've never given it any consideration if I'm honest.

RE: Self ban.
There'd also be the risk of hoardes of Theists from other sites signing up at their friends' behest for the sole purpose of negging us and getting us banned.

Though that's probably just my tin hat talking.

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.

Thanks for the response. I was thinking back and don't ever remember anyone asking me to rep one way or the other.

RE: Self ban.
The question I want to ask is, why? If they are annoying don't participate in their threads or add them to your ignore list. The only purpose this would serve is to exclude or censor individuals the community finds unpopular.

Plus half the fun to be had on these forums is arguing with these people. I think some members would be very depressed if they didn't have a reliable person to swear at.

RE: Self ban.
I'm not sure we heathens could ever be compelled to do anything en masse. Hell, I bet most of us would vote the other way if anyone tried to coerce us in voting one way or another.

Most of us here aren't the kind that are easily swayed by peer pressure. Freethinkers tend to be like that don't you know?

RE: Self ban.
I respectfully decline the system, though it was an interesting concept.

Let the trolls speak, I say, for it takes a truly civilized society to hear all viewpoints.

Just because YOU believe in fairies doesn't mean anybody else should.
