    That’s never bothered me. I know who the trolls are. I just scroll past them.

    I think the threadban works if you’re the type who gets sidetracked by trolls or those who want to vent bile.

    Another consideration of mine is that I can imagine missing out on Epic posts and threads by using the feature. I probably would have missed most of Dixie’s greatest posts. Desh has had some most awesome ones I would have missed too...and who didn’t want to ban you when Pete Carroll was at USC...and then i would have missed your humanizing descent into purgatory.

    The only one I’ve ever considered thread banning is Super Freak cause the little cock sucker talks to me just like my father used too...but like my father I learned to ignore his caustic tongue.

    So i voted don’t care. I don’t need it but I can see where others like it.

    Their delicate sensibilities couldn’t handle my toxic masculinity when I first arrived on scene at JPP. They were use to beta cucks like Rune, Jarod and Watermark. As such they immediately lobbied to have me banned. But like Legion, I broke no rules so the Mods didn’t ban me.

    That wasn’t good enough for the Pussy Posse. They were triggered snowflakes before triggered snowflakes were cool.

    Using the ignore feature wasn’t enough for them because as they explained to Damo “even if I gave him on ignore he can come to my threads and other people respond to him that I don’t have on ignore and I am forced to read his mean posts then”.

    Hence the Thread Ban feature was born. Oh and Forced Ignore was created for the Pussy Posse as well although we don’t see that deployed much anymore.

    Well the Thread Ban feature was rolled out and the Pussy Posse thought they finally had good ole ILA once and for all. But alas like all plans concocted by stupid leftists they didn’t account for the unintended consequences. You see ANYONE could use thread bans.

    So I started using them. And not just the Pussy Posse, but all leftists were struck with the weapon forged to defeat me. I turned their own weapon on them. As you can imagine this caused great consternation amongst the leftists. “how dare ILA use a tool designed to box him in against us”.

    And here we are again. This is what the fourth or fifth vote on whether to keep the thread ban? It is usually precipitated by an influx of new leftists who think they have a god given right to participate in any thread they want.

    Ironically it is leftists who brought about the thread ban and it is leftists who bitch about it the most. Yes some righties complain about it but not to the extent that leftists do. And the righties that complain at least have the sense not to use it before complaining about it.

    All of the above is true
    Indeed.

    I voted neutral, too. I can see both sides of the argument for a thread ban feature.

    It's not weak to want to deny a certain few idiots like Truth Deflector, CFM and a couple of others, the chance to fuck up every thread you start just because they're childish, immature assholes and have nothing worthwhile to contribute.

    But if you have some desperate, pathological inner need to feel superior to other people, then you just go right ahead.

    I won't judge.

    We all come to this board for different reasons. I enjoy hearing differing perspectives and ideas and seeing that I live in a very large bubble I appreciate hearing opinions from those in the other parts of the country.

    Now granted I'm a slow learner but around the 500th time Desh called me evil and a racist I was starting to catch on to what she thought of me. Of course we have the ignore button but it just fvcks up threads. Same with folks like CFM who no matter what the topic just can't help themselves from dropping n*bombs. I spend way too much time on this board as it is but that doesn't make it enjoyable for me.

    But to each his own on how they feel about it.

    Nope, any cursory perusal of my threads indicates that a substantial number of rightwingers who can act reasonably civilized and practice a modicum of social ettiquette freely participate in my threads. I do not ban teabaggers for disagreeing. I ban them for being racists, bigots, belligerent trolls, blatant liars and libelers, misogynists, and sociopaths.

    I am not obligated to provide safe harbor to sociopaths and racists and allow these subhumans to participate in civilized conversation.

    I have to laugh at anyone this full of themselves. Are you really going to feel like a champion, because of a backwater forum, of maybe 50 people wasting time online? As far as achievements go, I think that's on the level of being one of the kids, that can make armpit farting noises. Bragging about anything on that level makes a person look silly. Not banning people is fine for politics, but it never works in other categories. Of course even in politics, I've come across a few people that turn it personal, and about you instead.

    A large portion of his list don't even post here anymore due to perma-ban. Most of the others are trolls, or just petty conversationalists. You for instance only occasionally use language in debate, and even then you're normally just mouthing off, and wasting time. I save that for trolls, and bs libelers.

    There are certain obsessive trolls around here who glom onto an individual and follow them around the forum doing nothing but personal attacks and adding zero to the discussion. I'm fine with thread-banning them.

    so that's -3 on abolish now.

    I am also completely disqualifying him from voting at all now.

    Before anyone says I am being a hardass on this, a lot of people are voting, I don't know every single username, and trying to track all accounts is legitimate is a huge pain in the ass, and I warned everyone up front not to do it. More importantly, this is a feature that effects everyone on the site, and while it is an issue we revisit from time to time, it's still rare enough that multi voting is straight up cheating and trying to enforce your will on other people in an unfair manner.

    I literally said in the first post I would ban you if you multi vote. Do you guys just think I am some pushover bitch or something and I wont follow through on what I say I will? Do you think I am retarded or something and wont periodically check for alts?

    Don't multi vote, if you do, you will be banned and your votes wont count. simple as that.
