RE: The Toilet
I would suspect that a person could earn his/her way out, but it would be a rare thing. Turds be turds for the most part.

I don't see the point. We have a "naughty group" which limits participation, and we ban the real troublemakers.

FYI people in the naughty group can't give rep, they can't start new threads and are limited in how many posts they can do in a day, before the system software cuts them off.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: The Toilet
There was no point. I was unaware of the naughty group.

RE: The Toilet
There's the rare specimen that should probably go to the "Naughty Group" rather than an outright ban. I leave that to the Mods. They're doing a fine job of it.

The rest are shrieking imbeciles with no redeeming qualities. They have no interest in actual discussion so why would we bother keeping them around?

RE: The Toilet
The difference is that the normally banned can keep posting in one place only, and no one sees it except that they can see each other or people can go there purposefully to engage. It could be super funny, imagine some of the characters we have had here interacting just among themselves.

No need or usefulness in it, just funny.

RE: The Toilet
What constitutes as a "troll".
We try to be as free speech as possible here. If we can't handle a few trolls I think that speaks more about us than them.

RE: The Toilet
At TAF, we had a subforum called "the Oubliette". That was one option for moderating decisions -- a specific amount of time, you only post there, and the rules still applied in full. That way members in good standing could read or not read you as they wished, but you couldn't shit up any other threads.

As a plus, we made the wallpaper obnoxious, eye-stabbing colors. We might also change your avatar if you continued being a dick.

RE: The Toilet
While I can see some limitted entertainment value in a Troll Den, especially if somebody were to launch a couple of chatterbots onto it, I really think that it's more effort than it's worth to maintain a Toilet just for their Shit.
