    Generally it's nice just to point us at the problem and trust that we're not fucking idiots. Telling us what to do about it is akin to footballers raising mock red-cards to referees after a foul in an attempt to get a player sent off.

    Ok sorry about that I didn't want him being just straight GI'd and the thread locked, so I thought I'd suggest a more lenient course of action

    Yes, because we're all knee-jerk wankers who ban someone on another user's say-so without actually looking at the thread(s) in question. :)

    And, in this case, while sailing close to the wind I don't think there's much to support your assertion. Everyone could do with calming down a notch in that thread, mind you.

    If you don't like it, just don't read it.

    I think you should ban everyone except for you and me. Then cook me that dinner you know I like and maybe wear that underwear that I gave you for your birthday. You know the ones, they have Snoopy on them. I will wear mine with the little Woodstock......sorry, report users. My bad.

    I like to report @Bremenacht in the tropes thread, I like to be cordial and debate things like adults and can ignore moat light hearted insults but last night he crossed the line repeatedly comparing me to peados which I'm sure anybody would find deeply hurtful and offensive.
    I don't want to cut off the debate I prefer if the threat wasn't locked, I rather his last few offensive posts be moderated he be warned if he does it again he'll be GI'd but thats up to you
    Aren't you free to ignore it and go somewhere else? Or does this only apply to women?

    I know it's the comments section and everything but is there any particular reason IronSoldier is allowed to continually shit up the comments for every article he posts in?

    We're supposed to allow freedom of opinion on the site, but they are two of the few that make my eye twitch.

    How do you say to someone "Hey, could you possibly not be such an obnoxious tool" nicely?

    Staff writers don't give a fuck about that Tom. Bedders banned me for saying on a HotS hero rotation thread (seriously, it was just that) that this was a non news article and that was it.

    So why should you? Boot'em
  • Deleted user 21 September 2015 10:48:19
    or put them on ignore

    also who cares about the comment section, it is full of shit anyway

    Sometimes it's nice to read through comments. The trouble with putting someone on ignore is that their trolling regularly gets half the comments arguing with them so it makes no difference.
  • Deleted user 22 September 2015 06:20:34
    IronSoldier thirded.

    I thought he had been GI'd or something as he hadn't been about but lo, he rears his head and starts shitting up comment sections.

    As I noted when I stuck him on ignore, he doesn't actually contribute to the forums, just mings up the comments, so it shouldn't be too detrimental to perusing the site.

    Still though, he deserves a rap on the knuckles.

    cloudskipa, doesn't contribute to the forum but always seems to comment on things he has no interest in especially when it's something non Microsoft related. Why he can't stay out of things I've no idea...

    Can't a system be put in place that auto GIs anyone who consistently gets a large number of downvotes?

    Yeah that wouldn't be open to abuse, and wouldn't serve to silence those with unpopular opinions at all ;)

    None of your objections are putting me off the idea.

    Yeah I'm failing to see how getting rid of the twats who shit up every comment thread they take part in could be considered a negative.

    It's not about the twats, it's about automating something that could potentially be gamed. Plus what's a "large number of downvotes"?

    Whatever the amount of downvotes you need to to have your comment hidden until users have to specifically choose to show the comment I guess.

    And I can see how it could potentially be abused, but maybe it could require a mod or staff member to be the one who actually bans the user, and the system would merely highlight users who the community believe are detrimental to the site.

    Well if that's the case, we already have that in place. I'm looking at the list of most downvoted users right now :)
