You know who you are.

The childish behavior going on in Jokes & Funny Stuff forum is getting old. I have no qualms about banning a small number of people who are intentionally bringing down the quality of my site.

So, be forewarned, this is being monitored and action will be taken sooner rather than later.

Here here. Most things posted in there these days aren't even intended to be funny, just trollish.

You should reverse it. When you post in the jokes section you get -1 post count.

Create a voting system in the jokes section, if the joke gets more negative votes than positive in the first 15 minutes, the OP loses 1 post count

How about just not have the jokes and funny stuff threads show up in the live feed on the main page etc. then all the crap jokes wouldn't bother us. Couldn't care less if they they get post counts or not.
