Another suggestion is that having the user warned before the user is banned forever? I was banned once from BF (another user name) and the chance of lifting the ban is NEVER.
Now looking back, yes i did post some inappropriate posts which has finally induced this ban (but i didnt realise it until i got the ban). I sincerely apologise for those posts if they were offensive to anybody. But wouldnt it be nice if im warned of that situation before it actually happened? I mean what would you do if one day, out of a sudden when you log in and a message appears and says "im sorry that you are banned, ban period=forever".
I think that it is way better to warn before punishing by banning someone.

A temporary ban like 48 or 72hrs before a permanent ban is carried out is good to let the user knows that he has gone overboard.
I have a suggestion for the closing of inappropriate thread or posts that have been moved. Why dont the mod have a preset message to be send to the user's mailbox when his posts/threads are deleted or moved?

I too hardly bother to read many of the posts these days. I started participating here almost 3 years back. But since then, a lot has changed on this forum. The number of fellow members and posts has increased but the quality has decreased like Bao Chunlai's form.
but still the old articles are a good read!!

Really now, is there a need for multiple in a single post?

But that does not necessarily constitute an insensible posting.
If I start flying off at the handle at someone, or post a useless thread about "what is the best racquet" then even I would want that thread deleted, there is just no point to it, and the verbal animosity unwarranted.

What I've done, and seen done is just to have mods & admins contact the offending parties directly, as it is more personable, and also if there is any disagreement; people can work them out amicably.
(well... in most situations)

I'm new in this forum and this dicussion seems very interesting. what do you mean when you say "insensible and juvenile? there is a list of roles in this site. you can explain to the people what is wrong and what you don't like read and see.. my be it is useful.

I think an extension of the "edit time" would be helpful. It's far more effective to allow people to police themselves than to have other people do it for them. I know of several of my own posts that I would have gladly deleted/altered if given more time to see the light. Maybe other people feel the same way?

You can edit your post if you were to do it immediately after you post.
It wouldn't be practical to allow editing after replies have been posted.

A Insensible Post = Members attacking one another personally
IMHO, an 'Insensible Posting' is a post intended to attack another member personally, instead of talking about the issue.
We all know that we all have different opinions on certain matters.
Why not just state our opinion and leave it as such?
Why do we need to post silly 'insensible and juvenile' things like: 'You are wrong, I am right'?
IMHO, it is best for us to check how many times we use the words "I" and "YOU" when we post.
BTW, just look at this post;

YA MAN we gotta stop with the "insensible postings"
ITs not rite man, takes away from the integrity of the forums etc etc etc
the WISEDom meter for this website must read ova 9000 or else ppl complAin!
But seriously, this is a public forum available to all internet users, so unless Kwun will take the initiative and time to set up a moderating system, then it is inevitable that posts of all kinds of subjects will occur.
What I see is that, spam and irrelevant topics are unavoidable aspects in ALL public forums. The increasing rate of "insensible postings" only signifies the increasing popularity of the website. Keeping in mind that, as the forum reaches out to a wider popularity, there will certainly be people who do not share the same mindset as most of regular BCers.
If this website is to increase in popularity, then it all comes down to whether the admin will actively invest in a moderating system or limit the accessibility of BC (eg turning it into a private forum), because it is impossible to maintain a popular yet strictly self moderating forum.

i think another instance of an 'insensible posting' is when a member, new or not, will dig up old threads and create their own, in order to attract attention.
i know more than one person has done it in the time that i have seriously begun to frequent the forum. i probably have done it as well.

Permitting late edits poses several problems.
For instance, it would radically alter the conversation thread.
Here's an illustration:
Arnold: I love yellow
William: Another Coldplay fan.
Arnold: No, I mean the colour. I hate Coldplay.
Steve: My wife wants to grow Goldenrods.
Brad: Arnold, so you love indigo too?
Arnold: Why so?
Brad: Duh! Because its complement is indigo.
Derek: That's nonsense. They don't fit Hunt's requirement. It must be possible to reproduce the tristimulus values of a specified achromatic stimulus by an additive mixture of these two stimuli. Only then will they be complementary colours.
Ray: Whoa, who's the twerp from Harvard?
Post#1 (edited by Arnold)
Arnold: I love green.
