    Hey ffarl, how about a "Penalty Box"?

    Yes... how about setting up a penalty box? When some of these threads spiral down the crapper, they could be moved to a penalty box. That way, you are not censoring anyone and, if its not linked, it would improve the looks of the column on the side listing recent posts. I guess the question is.. are you gaining more of an audience or not. Now perhaps it would pose a problem deciding when a thread gets sent to the box (and perhaps there is a better label), but you could simple ask yourself if it's starting to look like fodder for the Jerry Springer show..... or maybe if the term c**t is used in 6 consecutive posts... I mean people could still go a view the threads in the box if they want to torment the criminally insane or screw with the minds of the challenged. As I'm writing this, I'm starting to think it's a dumb idea, because the penalty box would get pretty crowded.

    No script.. don't think there is anybody on the planet that is more unscripted that I..... (that's why I operate under a vow of silence when out in public) and it was written tongue in cheek .. sort of. Don’t need or want an agent. All of the proceeds would go to the victims anyway. Plus I’m too busy coming up with a cheap fix for SKS slam fires. Gotta protect the root crops in the coming days. All kidding aside, some more decent build threads would help me find some inspiration for getting the bike onto the front burner and I wouldn’t feel like I’m signing onto the Fox News site.

    Once you get to a half-dozen slags and nothing positive, a responsible moderator should delete the thread.

    Any form of spam should be deleted by an adminstrator. If you want to sell a product become a supporting vendor. If it's a single item put it in the classified. Not sure on the penalty box thing.
