The "Ban Bomb" - GLP's Answer for better posters?
What if you can trade your karma points for a "ban bomb" and folks can do the banning, but it would take maybe 5 ban bombs to finally get someone banned and it would be for like three days?

The ban bomber could select choices for reasons why he or she is dropping the bomb on a poster, say "Poster was rude," or "Poster did not do their research," and its non attributable.

And if someone were to get ban bombed they would see a page pop up as a warning saying

"someone has ban bombed you. Four more bombs and you'll be banned for 72 hours. You should try to be nicer" or "you should try to be smarter"

Oh and just to be cute, under the person's name could be little bomb icons for how many hits he or she has taken (red bombs) and another for how many are in their arsenal (green bombs), hahahaha.

Also, the hits a person has taken should reset to zero if they managed to be good long enough (maybe two weeks?)and not take any more hits

What do you think Trin?

It's just an idea. Trinity really has trouble with some folks here. I figure a system that could police itself could work. I could be wrong, though.

You have any ideas to offer?

The person dropping the bomb should have to suffer some kind of loss, so they don't just bomb everyone they see/they need to feel strongly enough to really drop the bomb.


But, all in all, not a bad idea. Maybe it would get rid of some of the more hateful ac's AND avatars.

You've seen the way people karma-farm around here? The system would simply be abused. People would stock up on ban bombs and drop all 5 at once for even the slightest infringement. Even if you were to limit the number of "bombs" a poster could drop to something like one a day, people would just create multiple accounts and still bombard someone. And if they took a particular dislike to someone, they'd wait for the 72 hours to end and bomb them back to banville.

Well, that's the beauty of it. Ban bombs would only be gotten by trading karma points so if you're not getting karma you can't get any ban bombs.

I would add a ban bomber could only bomb a poster once per day, just to be fair.

And maybe, if a bomber bombs to excessively he or she gets the title "war monger" and suffers some consequence for it like can only have one ban bomb in their arsenal or they become more expensive.

I know there are folks here that thumbs down excessively just to get their karma (karma farming) points that way, which doesn't seem fair.

I know you are but what am I?

I hope this isn't the type of "intellectual debate" that you are seeking to not get bombed for.
If someone disagrees with you, just cry "you hate yourself, wahhh". What kind of argument is that really? I've given the best same level response that I could find. I hope you find it non-bomb worthy.

My apologies if you're a woman.

I am hardly mad if my idea is not accepted.

I am not attacking you, but communicating on the Internet is very difficult because it lacks the subtlties to send the right message that can (an is) often misinterpreted.

But I do understand how one can feel attacked if their ideas are not accepted. I get that. The challenge is knowing when that is happening and getting over it.
