Quality over quantity and all that :p

p.s. dale, your sig. line's last quote needs a 'to' swapped for a 'the'. figured you'd want that corrected.

came to see what it's about. ok cute.
i still have questions though,
Do i get to sit at the cool-kids table at lunch during permie convergences?
Do i get a key to the executive humanure outhouse?
Most importantly, if i kill all the other apple-havers by decapitation, do i get their apples in a quickening ?

I knew a guy who would post the names of the TOS violators and the reason for account termination on his site. He kept a thread separate for it and he was the only one who could post there. It was available for all to see, so that folks were aware of what constituted bad behavior. A lot of it was spam and people who created false accounts to harass other members. Anyway, maybe it would be useful to tag "Banana Posts" and copy them to a thread called " The Banana Circle", for other permies to see.
I guess I think a happy medium would be to maybe make the banana able to be seen by the individual who posted the comment and then copy it to a "Banana Circle" with "Anonymous" as the poster name.
This way the poster knows they crossed a line without being publicly humiliated, and the comment can be seen by others as a teaching tool for better behavior.
