Can we restore an efficient and productive dialog in this forum via banning touristguy87?

to me it is very irritating that first posting of new member is a poll to ban another user !

This is an issue for moderators to deal with, not for new members.
Go sell crazy some place else... we're all stocked up here!

I think: no. Democratic structures can stand people like him. If you start banning those people you somewhen find youself burning books.

Dort wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.

Where one burns books, there one also burns bodies.

Can we at least have an "ignore" feature to filter out posts from users? That is, each user could select to filter out any other user.

Some forums ban users for a given time-- a week for the first offence, a month for the second and so forth.

Another option is a partial ban--limit a user to xxx characters per day, not counting quotes -- Never seen seen this done, don't know if PunBB can do it, but it would make a poster think about what they're posting and be concise, and not duplicate information.

And that may be the issue I have with Touristguy--lots of words that don't say anything new, he doesn't use the quote method everyone else does, and he uses a novel to say what can best be described in a sentence. It takes a lot of time to read his postings, and figure out which is the quote and which is his post. This, IMO, is discourteous to all the other forum members.

What about a Troll filter, that way it's up to the individual to decide if they want to be Trollified.

My vote is "no" as long as his "trolling" is rotating around his lack of knowledge but cocksureness of possessing it. If it changes to just insults, then I change my vote to a "yes".

--update
I'm going through the threads and I saw "...honestly, my *dog* yaps less than you do."... thats the sort of thing that could change my vote, but there's too little of that yet, its still a "no".

Our troll just posted something about a Sony camera to the "Future" part of the forum, rather than the "Open Talk" part.

It's been four days since the last post in this thread, has anyone changed their minds about the troll?

Yes. He´s disgusting. I´d vote for a troll-filter at least. He doesn´t add anything positive to the forum. He takes away time and attention from relevant themes.

For those of you who do not know... ANYONE who lives in the lower peninsula of Michigan in the USA is a "Troll" myself included. It's because we live below the bridge, aka the Mackinaw Bridge :lol:

Long live the TROLLS!!! :)

Good one Dave. Long live Trolls.
But seriously. The Amish, I think, here have a process for dealing with people that are miscreants in their eyes.
They shun them! Lets not ban him, lets just ignore him. Don't read his stuff, don't comment on it, just ignore it.
