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.
No, we don't hate theists. It's just people who get negged.

Insulting me will convert me real fast!
MSBB:
Don't let anyone define who you are.
Me:
Can we define him as he defines himself? Or will he define himself as we define how he defines himself? But, if we do that, will we define him as he defines himself based on our definition of how we see him define himself?

Its true. I don't want to say to much because it would be bringing up more drama, but I can vouch for people pressuring me.

Yeah, I know. It's all good Ato.

RE: Self ban.
Ya know...if neg repping theists was an issue around here KC wouldn't have the highest rep.

It's not theism that prompts neg reps...it's assholery.

That is true, but I see a huge margin that allows this system to be abused.

Agreed, but the focus has become that everyone will gang up to insta-ban theists.

Theists aren't necessarily the only people that are vulnerable. When another huge shit-storm comes its way, and divides the forum again, this system is highly susceptible for abuse.

RE: Self ban.
Ya know, theres nobody that can pressure me into anything, I'm my own man and do, say and think exactly what I feel like, regardless of the consequences. I live by my own rules, and if someone else goes along for the ride, thats great. Other than that I could give a shit.

I would have thought that a bunch of realists would have the same attitude, tho, I'm sure they do. Positive reps are nice, but not the end all. I'm sure that I've pissed off my share of people in here, and whether right or wrong, thats who I am.

Obviously, people like TW and JEW are comfortable in there own skin, regardless of how the majority feels, and as long as they havent broken the rules, they are welcome to have their say....... even if I decide not to agree with them.

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

I don't do things people ask me to simply because they pressure me to do it, however, there is a mob mentality. And since I have experienced the fact of people suggesting (heavily) group neg reps.

With this fact in mind, I see how flawed a system like this is.

Your honesty on that matter is appreciated...sometimes I forget how young you are.

I'm going to take that as a compliment Tongue
