I would even put money into a pool towards banning certain members I severely dislike (not on grounds of political opinion in RWI but purely because they constantly make stupid troll posts), but then that is a slippery slope that could just as well back fire.
Hmm, interesting thought. What if a subscriber could 'vote down' a poster? Can only 'down vote' a particular poster once. And if that poster got to a certain number of 'down votes', they would get a temp ban, and escalate from there? Might help keep down on some of the trolling ... moderation by committee.
