It seems that so many people were banned recently.  Is there some explanation of what went on and why?  Did the folk who got banned really deserve it?  I have to admit, I'm "newbie" so now I'm a little scared to post in this forum in case someone bans me out of nowhere.

You can find it here. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=390303.msg6508863#msg6508863
Yeah there's a ton of garbage being posted in off topic lately. I suspect it's paid sig spammers giving themselves threads to reply to.

I've suggested posts in off topic shouldn't count towards post count.

Hmm, not sure if the people behind the bots are from the paid sigs or not, but a lot obviously just jump at the chance to post something in a nonsense thread as soon as it's posted. Maybe having certain boards that don't affect your post count would cut the down the spam a bit, but I think it'd also just move a lot of it to somewhere else and we'll then see stupid discussions in the politics section or whatever.

I think we should disable the postcount feature entirely, don't you think ? We have activity , that should suffice.

I've actually suggested that too in the past, but it would still be relatively easy to determine posts, knowing there are 20 per page. I've resigned myself to the fact that we're going to have start banning people, didn't want to but it's getting out of hand. Banned a dozen this morning alone (1 week/2 week duration to start), with a dozen more under review, and I'm just getting started.

I think the name is set to red is better, if someone suddenly disappeared transaction, it's really embarrassing.
