    I understand your point. The track record indicates that SG is willing to give multiple chances to those who transgress. It might be an idea to permit one day bans to mods for spot control.

    Personally I think that one day bans are worthless.

    We do have a member or two that after the second or third chance on a perm ban, are good members, but we also have a couple that banning hasn't changed one thing about being obnoxious and overbearing.

    if this new forum is formed,maybe entrance to it would have to be approved and a temp or perm ban could be enforced just in that forum ?

    I belong to a fishing forum that has a semi private sub forum for setting up meetings and other stuff,works fine that way.

    of course it's a very friendly place.

    But, they might be that way in the context of the discussion. Currently in the gen forum, the tone of political discussion is less permissive than it would hopefully be in the new forum.

    The overbearing and obnoxious few are overbearing and obnoxious during political/religious discussions.

    Other forums/communities have rid themselves of political discussion...look at the [H] for example....and look at how successful they are. Others like ARS have contained it and kept it private.

    The subject matter is begging to be segregated from the rest of the benign gen forum topics.

    While what you say has a grain of truth, in actuality, said people extend those qualities where ever they might select to interject their opinions.

    At this point I think it's safe to say the forum is divided on the need for this.

    Probably close to 50/50, would it be so difficult to try out?

    That's not my call ultimately. Not to pass the buck, but that decision rests with Philip.

    I think its leaning more towards a yes we need it...and again whats it going to hurt to try? Takes only a few mins to create a sub-forum.
