I never saw the joke so I have no comment on that. But I appreciate a clean site. I'm glad someone keeps consistent ratings because movie ratings sure are not consistent. What's PG-13 today would have been R a few years ago. So I thank the administrators here for "erring" on the side of the children, as GB said.

Two other sites I belong to have frequent bannings. The rest it's kind of a take it and give it atmosphere which tends to weed out trolls anyway. The two that have trolls that get banned are scammers who scam people out of money, and the other one people get banned for stealing other people's identities.

One very active forum I belong to even has a closed thread titled "Banned Users" where the moderators post names of members who've been banned, including reason and duration.

Well, I don't think anyone will steal any identities around here!

Our sites leaves the names in the member list, puts their name in a different color, and then changes their title to why they were banned. The funny part is the color is gray with a strike through it. You know, since you were speaking of gray.

I googled the joke. Heavy PG-13 IMO. Definitely not for this site.

What do you mean, "Our site"? Isn't this part of your
"our site" list?
This is part of my "our site".

By "our site" I'm referring to the site I previously mentioned several times in this thread. I am not a mod on this site.

Trolls are people who just go around to different boards and try to evoke conflict.

A sock puppet is a person who signs up again under another name to deceive others. We try to stay really up-to-date on multiple accounts and do not allow them for this very reason.

It seemed to me we had two of them recently, and I had never seen that since joining in March. One seems to have come and gone all in one day. The other, soon after.
But I would have called them something more than just a TROLL, had I the opportunity to meet them face to face. But I think we ignored them to death and they left of their own accord.
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah! HEY!
