Quoted from markmon:
There needs to be a system in place to punish those that break rules to get threads closed. I guess some folks don't have the mental abilities to logically discuss and debate issues so they have to break site rules to get a thread closed because they have no other way to "win" an argument?
maybe breaking out the ban hammer will prevent people posting porn gifs to close down threads if they don't agree with the topic, nature or tone of the discussion. we have moderators for shutting things down, no need to have clowns forcing their will on the pinside community.
