    Any single-ID poster who gets a temp.banning is very unlikely to return imo .. I sure wouldn't .. so those banned who do return are more than likely to have a bunch of socks on rotation. You can actually spot them talking to each other i.e. themselves You could also set up a "hate the jews/blacks" etc.. sub-forum and quarantine it with a foot&mouth disease alert to enter at one's own peril .. I think I am joking.

    I assume you know who they all are anyway.. pretty much, so eliminate as many as possible and elevate the forum's image. Might be quite a lot of work up front, but it would cut down a lot of the modding that's required right now.
    I like the idea of the core issues or threads or whatever they were, though. If they had their own section I would stay in it entirely and never stray widdershins the great divide again.

    I came back after getting banned for a week and don't use any puppets or socks.

    I don't have socks either, but I do reincarnate myself from time to time because I try to get away from having my names twisted. At the moment I am being referred to as dog turd.

    a week ? that's just a slap on the wrist .. I was thinking of the much longer & serious bannings. Though, still .. I wouldn't do it.

    I would suggest a ban on the use of multiple names. I would also create an English Affairs section which had the political parties as sub-sections, and a sub-section for general topics. The general topics sub-section could include threads about the independence debate, or a sub-section could be created for that subject.

    By the sounds of it, attempting to reincarnate oneself doesn't appear to help with the insults though. It's such a shame that some feel the need to add abuse to their supposed opinion or argument; I guess they have to make up for their small packages somehow!

    I have come to the conclusion that there is no name they will not sully. I think if you came here callling yourself Jesus one of them would soon enough start referring to you as Peesus.
