What are your thoughts on forum software that allows you and the community to ban users for a price of $10 in Bitcoins? I think it would be a good form of moderation and people could put their money where their mouth is for great demands of community quality.

It would be like an inverse form of SomethingAwful. Users that were banned can get their IP address unblocked for $20 and the people who banned him will get paid back in full plus profit. Of course, they can just get banned again by the same group of users for $20. The price will increase $10 every time one side has its say. So if the user gets banned again, it will cost him $30 to get back in and so forth.

Thoughts?

ADDITION: Banned users can ban the people who banned them in return for the starting price of $10. The prices may have to be lowered to increase the effectiveness of the whole system though.

A list of banned users and people who ban will be open to the community. People can unban people they like.

I assume public proxies and the like will be gradually banned by evading users. IPv6 addresses will have to be grouped into ranges.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

The rich win control everywhere else in the world.  Do they really need to win control here too?

I don't think anyone has a inherent right to a say in a forum community. The people who are willing to invest money into it likely have the most to gain or lose out of anyone and they should have the ability to represent their desires with their own assets.

...but, hey, if you want "free" forum moderation, BitcoinTalk might be the place for you. I am not proposing this for this forum but for a new one.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

I don't see any problem with this.  You just bought out the forum, congrats. The community will just probably create a new one anyways.

I doubt many people will pay $20 to get back in though. You will likely suffer a huge loss so non-sequitur.

Great. Lets turn this place into a giant echo chamber filled with people fellating each other over fear of getting banned. That's where good ideas are born...in giant circle jerks like SA. Right?

Aww....see I prob would have just been bought a ban for being a smartass...so yeah, id vote no...if this were an actual thing

Start one up, see how everyone likes it.  My guess is, they won't.

An armed society is a polite society.

Hm, I guess it would be a good idea to let people ban the user(s) that banned them.

You would ban any user just because someone gives you 10 bucks? Good to know you have a price, and you're cheap.

I don't know how you are going to get any type of community going with everyone getting banned the second they piss someone off.

The only way this would end is with like, twelve dudes patting each other on the back and everyone else on Vlad's forum. Stupidest fucking idea I have ever heard.

I'll give you ten bucks in bitcoin to ban Atlas' #22 right now. Then he can see how effective his revolutionary new moderation plan is.

Seriously though, this is what would end up happening. Anybody who stands out (in a good or bad way) would get banned eventually, and it would have be a really good forum to get people to pay even more to come back. Then you are losing all the ideas and discussion that person brings just because some jackass who skipped taco bell for a couple days banned him.

It may be effective in getting rid of a few people you don't like for whatever reason, but would it be worth losing all the others that would get banned by other random people who don't like them?

I mean, there would be some stupid noob who would do this to people like Phinnaeus or D&T when they got some terse answer they didn't like, for chrissake, not to mention LoupGaroux would be gone in a heartbeat and I would no longer have a master troll to learn from...

ROTFL

My first $10 would go to banning the OP.

I'd contribute to that cause.  Let's hope he has deep pockets to keep buying himself back in.

Something tells me Atlas' mommy and daddy aren't going to pay him thousands of dollars a week to feel relevant on a forum and fight everyone's obvious contempt for him.

Does anyone else find it odd how a self proclaimed freedom advocate/libertard (who never actually does any advocating) is constantly obsessed with bans and segregating the poor? What a poor confused ritalin ridden soul.

So instead of having a system where complaints are laid and then on rare occasions people are actually banned.

Anyone can go ban whoever they like for whatever reason they like for 2 BTC and the person they banned has to then pay 4 BTC to get back in.
