    Post Due Process before Banning??

    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.

    cosmocreator agrees: I like the idea.
    Hmmm ... the new comment option circumvents shuns to a certain extent.

    Considerable for long-standing members (one orange dot) i. m. h. o. but not for every occasional newbie and troll.

    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?
