    _____________________________

    SUMMARY


    * Threadbanning is a feature that allows one to selectively ban people from threads they create.

    * If you are semi-new and still don't have a fully formed opinion on the matter, you can read this thread: (https://www.justplainpolitics.com/sh...-new-poll-soon) which has a decent amount of discussion about it.

    * This poll will be open for 7-14 days. I want everyone to have the opportunity to vote. Walls might be spammed O_O

    * If the vast majority of people vote rather quickly it may be closed earlier.

    * If the vote appears to be an obvious runaway it may be closed earlier.

    * Unlike last time, VOTE WILL BE ANONYMOUS, even after votes are in. That way, if you wanna be two-faced and claim you hate threadbanning but secretly you want to support it, you will be allowed to do so. The mod team will not out you.

    * We might however provide general stats if people are interested, and in the name of transparency.

    RULE TIME

    Rule 1 - Only those on the following list are allowed to vote -

    DO NOT VOTE IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN ACCOUNT ON THE BELOW LIST, as you may be banned for an unspecified amount of time:

    If you have multiple accounts, you don't have to vote under the specific account name listed above, but make sure you only vote once. We aren't a DNC precinct.

    Rule 2 - DO NOT multi-vote

    Multi-voting may lead to a ban of an unspecified length. If you end up voting twice on different names because you are a retard and can't help yourself, let us know before we find out on our own.

    Sorry to make a simple vote so unnecessarily grandiose but a lot of you are idiots and really need your hand held.

    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.

    I know this is a poll for long-termers, and I accept that.

    Still, if I may, let me suggest another option: Keep the feature, but - software allowing - drop it in the War Zone. It's ridiculous.

    You need to talk to Damocles as he wrote the code.
    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    Bertrand Russell, “An Inquiry Into Meaning & Truth” (1940)

    We can see who voted how behind the scenes.

    Or do you mean morally?

    So far with 14% of the vote cast, Keep is running away with it.

    My suggestion:

    Keep it if you must, but a) limit the number of posters that can be pre-banned from a given thread and b) if it's a "call-out" thread (about a specific member) disallow banning that member so that they can respond.

    Sorry this is a poll about keeping it or letting it go. You retards don't get to dictate terms trying to water it down.

    I voted neutral but I agree with this.

    I'm really torn, I generally don't like it, yet, it is a must for Buckly.

    I shall contemplate this some more.
