ban no longer lasts for 30 days but is over as soon as the culprit handwrites 51 letters of apology to the relevant ilxors

Fuck me, Twitter and FB are click for like type meritocracies, and look at the fucking state of them for goodness sake. And 99% of football forum "content" is enough to drive you to ending it for good. I'd say do not change anything ILX.

Not really. A bit though yeah, def.

Lots of people otm here, some a bit too eager even to my own liking but that comes with the territory.

Feels like the ilx massive wants to exclude a person or two for quite some time. And it's not happening. Fine by me, but the system seems flawed for 2017 realness. Which is why I asked 31 for 51.

So wait... we're complaining because there are less dickheads needing/getting flagged/banhammered because theres less of us now, and this is a problem why exactly?

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 30 October 2017 02:09 (eleven months ago) Permalink

I think that brings up a good point - we might dislike certain posters more than we ever would have in, say, peak noize dude era, because there are less of us, and so the, uh, noize floor is more noticeable

bernard snowy, Monday, 30 October 2017 02:20 (eleven months ago) Permalink

i support bernard snowy's proposal, seems sound.

if it's true that there are fewer of us, that makes us more vulnerable to assholes hanging around forever, never to reach 51 but able to really derail every thread at their whim. i always thought 51 was kind of shockingly high but i guess people used to do a lot more lol-SBing and you had to compensate for that.

Doctor Casino, Monday, 30 October 2017 02:55 (eleven months ago) Permalink

btw at first glance I assumed this was a thread about flagging anyone who posted some lifestyle article about how age 31 is "the new 51"

mh, Monday, 30 October 2017 04:56 (eleven months ago) Permalink

I suspect this poll was prompted by a particular poster who may have been 51'ed under a different username, but came back and is still a frequent irritant. My sense is that if any poster rises to the level of unacceptability requiring ejection, ILX will muster the necessary 51 FPs.

I personally doubt that there have been many posters who accumulated more than 31 active FPs who did not also pass the 51 threshold soon afterwards, but that is merely a guess on my part. Picking the 'right' number is not a science, but a fairly inexact heuristic. I'm fine with any number, as long as it is high enough that it cannot be driven by relatively small cabal. 51 has been adequately functional so far, imo.

I also note that 51 has deeply entered ILX lore. Changing it would render that lore illegible.

no, it doesn't, because even if the threads aren't open they are still taking place and the events still exist and I still have to think about them. and unfortunately it is 2018, there are very few right-to-work states, and there are even fewer jobs, so people will take any excuse to fire an employee

well, last time it was because we had just abolished conscription, withdrawn from Vietnam, made university free, abolished the death penalty, released Papua New Guinea to be an independent country under the UN, brought in universal health care, instituted laws against racial discrimination, returned land rights to native people, set up arts grants and community radio licences, lowered the voting age to 18, allowed our third largest state-equivalent to elect senators, federally funded the connecting of homes to sewers, cut international tariffs, funded state schools, allowed single mothers to receive welfare for the first time, and brought in both equal pay and a minimum wage for women.
