I think that much of what is being suggested , would require the Webmiss to do a fair amount of re-programming of the site, all together .   While that job isn't my forte, I would defer to Webmiss for a more definitive answer as far as project time and work involved.

Other options that may or may not be as involved, for a fix of some of the issues in question, could be some sort of block to prevent multiple accounts being made by the same user, as many but not all , "hydras" have been the source of website trouble.  

Another option is to do away with the forums and Just leave the groups, where there is more ability to vet the members joining the groups.

Personally , I'm all for IP address banning but that's not my decision either, when it comes to website function.

Ultimately it's the website owner who decides what they feel is tolerable for their site.


thank you very much lavender

of course, it goes without saying that any change is up to webmiss. thatís why these suggestion forums exist.

i must be mistaken in thinking that the sock puppet problem had been largely pest controlled.

i wouldnít want the forums gone by any means. i just hope there is a middle ground achievable

People are called  idiots
when someone disagrees with them

It is only called spam when it is not what one prefers to hear or read

Otherwise the posts are supported even if they are repeated (spam)

I have a narcissist ex who thinks everyone is an idiot who doesn't agree with him


Sometimes I call people idiots when I agree with them. Just because we agree doesnít make them less of an idiot.

my dear Caxton

i myself am crazy, diagnosed and stamped in triplicate. thatís no excuse for what amounts to deliberate outright lies

this is a roundabout way of addressing the issue as misinformation tends to be posted in great volume as an inarguable torrent of shite

Not to mention retractions are practically unheard of. . .despite proven misinformation.

how about being able to flag a thread as spam for review and if enough people report it it will get looked at?

as a nugget to think about, weíre all very quick to cry free speech when we donít like someone taking objection to someone else, but to paraphrase, free speech is not speech without consequences. if you were to stand in the street screaming in peoples faces as they pass by youíd expect to be removed. why because youíre online do you feel free to scream and shout without anyone taking offence
