You would ban any user just because someone gives you 10 bucks? Good to know you have a price, and you're cheap.
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...
Thank you, Randy. I learned a new word today--epigrammatic. BTW, can I borrow a sawbuck?
