The Adminsitration has the say on how things are run and that is that. But just for fun, and perhaps to influence the powers that be, why not have a cyber-trial for someone accused of a transgression? Or perhaps instead of just complaining about someone who is offending you, a complaint could be lodged with a judge or grand jury and if the complaint warrented a hearing, a cyber-trial could take place. The Final Judge would remain the same in any case. The accused might defend himself or have someone else defend him as in a court. The idea seems like fun to me and everyone would learn what is acceptable and what is not.

Interesting. It would take a lot of time though.

Interesting. It would take a lot of time though. Since when do you have a life? :P

Two more thoughts:

1. Restrict repeat offenders to a probation period in the Lowbrow Section.

2. We are all now familiar with the comment made to Frans_Josef which caused a banning. There is a difference between discussing a particular ethnic or racial group in a Highbrow manner and making negative comments about a Member's ancestry. How about making any such personal references a cause, prima facia, for dicipline, always. Do we really want to be associated with anybody who would stoop that low?
