"People" are stupid. Majority of them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normal_distribution
well, based on a normal distribution, then the number of smart ppl and dumb ppl (compared to the average) should be the same. then again, nothings ever perfectly Gaussian, but you know what i mean

QFT. I believe that the mods are doing a good job keeping out the rifraff, and if there is someone in the forums that is unruly, then we should notify the mods in a pm.

MikeC isn't stupid enough to allow users to vote who gets banned.

I'd shudder to think what would happen if judicial matters all became a matter of a popular vote. Speaking of "mob rule"... Hell, even with our Republican form of government, they wouldn't allow this. And even where jurys are involved, the jury selection process isn't without cautiousness to try to assure an impartial jury.

I could see it now. Vote to see who goes to jail, and the basis of a crime decided by vote, rather then by laws. Umm, I think I'd pass

Nah, Mike C would want to avoid that (along with the sort of flames an open vote could generate), and for good reason.

As they say here in South Africa ... "Giving power to the people". Isn't that what a democracy is all about.
Yes, so let's vote to ban Hillary and export her to South Africa. Useless here, useful elsewhere.

If you don't like someone's posts, ignore them. People are such whiny wimps these days. Take the gang mentality elsewhere.

That wasn't what I was saying. What I meant was that we should be able to SUGGEST who should be considered by the mods for a ban.

But in any case I retract my original post. The argument about a poll turning into a flame-fest was convincing enough.

Could we add Paris DUI Hilton to the list, except send her to Siberia? If she hits a polar bear, she might not get another one. Not sure about the exact impact with a polar bear, but deer alone can cause considerable damage to a car; and in the bear's case it won't be a person.

Another forum I used to visit had a section where other users couldn't see any of the posts by other users, only their own. That way no other users could reply to them. If we could implement something like that here, that would work, then MikeC/Mods could keep track of "suggestions" without the flame wars.

PM's would work, except Mods would then have to sift thru the PM's one by one and keep a total, where as in the Forum area, it would be much simpler to keep track. Maybe even have a Sticky Thread at the top with updated/running totals. Like I said, nobody would be able to see the Posts except the OP of that individual Post and the Admins/Mods.
