Ron, I think the ticket is that the censorship/deletion/ and like that is the last resort. And a warning so it's known there's a problem is certainly a good and workable idea.
Sure there's times when it might be over the top language or hate filled speech and the button needs pushed.............but not on a whole thread. That's just plain goofy. You dump a post, let the offensive party know what's up, the repercussions and life goes on.
I don't think there's much need to ban someone unless all else fails. I've had better luck talking it out with someone. They usually get so sick of me, they leave on their own accord.
Nothin to it.
