I vote for "Dangerous Talk" to be banned from A/N!!!!!

Dangerous Talk posts tons of things here and always closes comments. Its REALLY annoying and spam to use our site that way. He's also made it impossible to contact him without "friending" first, so I cant complain directly to him or in his comment sections. This is incredibly annoying and siphons traffic away from our site, and allows him to post without being able to be held accountable or debated fairly. I HATE IT!!!! Please kick him off our site!!!

I certainly think it is the latter. This thread is not attacking a member and this particular member's behaviour is against the rules (Vanity Spamming). As for posting and immedietely locking, or immediate moderation of comments, I think it is spineless and obnoxious, and I do not think it should be allowed unless one's post in marked private, however, as much as I despise the latter behaviour, it is not against the rules, and therefore one should not be removed from the site for that, but vanity spamming should warrant an immediate banning.

I believe that the community should be able to contact those who post and lock, and let them know that it is not received warmly. When one person comments, it looks petty, but if many in the community have a say, it is much more diplomatic and therefore I agree with this post.

I'm with Ryan. If Dangerous Talk has no redeeming qualities, and no remorse about it, then he should be evicted.

Nerd, stop that! I just reported the issue myself! I wanted to be first! Is this thread attacking a member or the activity of a member (and in general).

p.s. Funk Q isn't a crotchety old fart. I am. That distinction is reserved for me. Dammit.

Told you the guy's a salesman. In here to siphon traffic and no interest whatsoever other than to rake in advertisers for his own vanity site.

my right *should be* not my right *is*...an important distinction there.

Deleting someone's comments or blocking comments is EXACTLY the same thing as slapping duct tape on their mouth. If it is ever justified, it is only under the most egregious of social violation. Certainly as felch points out, this person is clearly using our community for his own personal financial gain and to our detriment. I want to comment on the ideas he posts, and my right as a member of this site is to not have to go create a profile somewhere else to exercise that right.

I dont hate "dangerous talk" and I am not advocating that. I have two points. 1. blocking comments is antithetical to the value of public debate and an open, free forum., so I am advocating a rule where it is strongly discouraged. 2. This person clearly has exploited a lack of policy in this area to the detriment of the site and their own personal gain, so I am advocating he be banned, BUT if talking to him convinces him to open up comments on his posts, then I have no issue with him at all. I have no reason to believe his posts aren't very interesting, intelligent, and helpful.

I also advocate that nothing ever be deleted or removed except in the most extreme circumstances and with strong group consensus. Defeating idiotic statements with intelligent statements is far more effective than using the "delete" button in the long run.

The Site Rules state:

"Do not spam the groups, forums, chat, or other members. Any and all commercial or fraud spam should be reported immediately, using the "report issues" function. The following types of posts may be subject to removal without warning:

"Posts promoting personal websites and projects in inappropriate places. Your own profile is a good place for promoting your endeavors."

Think Dangerous' posts qualify for this existing site rule? I do.

In addition, maybe we should add a site rule, something to the effect of "posts whose sole intent appear to be to drive traffic to other sites, without primary intent to support the Nexus community, will be removed. Repetitious posting of content that has no intent other than to divert traffic to other sites will result in suspension from the Nexus".

This would include the repititous posts by one former Nexus member-who-shall-remain-unnamed who repeatedly posted links to another website and actively recruited Nexus members, as well as Dangerous' posts that have no intent other than to advertise his web site.

Has anyone used the Report and Issue button, with clear explanation, regarding this member? Seems like commenters here would support you.
