Lots of forums I'm on have something similar, but it's not a real ban, it's a donation ban. They're only temporary and it's "all in good fun" - although less pleasant people sometimes get annoyed.

Usually it's like 5$ for a 1-2 days, etc, so to maintain a true ban would be cost prohibitive, and is never an issue. Usually banned users still have read access, they just can't post, and anyone who can't take a day or two without posting needs mental help.

It's to support the forum and it's never been a problem anywhere else. I think it's a good idea if the forum needs donations.

Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

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.

 Wink

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?

If I had to give 10 BTC for every person I ignored....

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.
