    Default It's been a month. Please vote on your thoughts RE: the "thread ban" feature

    Please take this seriously, it's a feature a lot of people like/some dislike, so do not troll this poll. Don't use alts.

    Accounts less than 2 months old will not count, as we want people slightly more established with the community.

    What are your thoughts on the "thread ban" feature?

    Poll is ANON from everyone except mods. So don't be afraid to vote how you really feel.

    Since it doesn't work on the only person I really give a shit about banning....

    If you feel so inclined a comment would be appreciated.

    Respect a believers right to believe, but they should damn well repect our right to challenge such utterly illogical notions.

    Also, although there are currently only a couple of troll members the potential exists for more to arrive and effectively split the board. The banned trolls will start their own thread on a specific topic resulting in duplicate threads. It will be a hassle, if not confusing, for newcomers who will be obliged to post their opinions in both threads.

    I'm with you guys. Get rid of the two trolls and all will be fine.

    I've noticed a distinct improvement of post quality in threads due to their absence.

    Just curious... but if you don't like the trolls, why would you want to post in the trolls threads?
    Quote from Cypress:
    "Scientists don't use "averages". Maybe armchair supertools on message boards ascribe some meaning to "averages" between two random data points. And maybe clueless amatuers "draw a straight line" through two random end data points to define a "trend". Experts don't.

    They use mean annual and five year means in trend analysis. Don't tell me I have to explain the difference to you. "

    why? just because I had the idea doesn't mean I can't like or dislike it on it's own merits. I am user of this board as well, and it's a feature that effects me as it does anyone else.

    I personally will not ban anyone and if I got banned, so what, been there done that. If "you" cannot stand the heat, then get out of the kitchen. All these supposed troll names being thrown around are all Greek to me, to pun intended.
