>lot of bad feelings among a lot of people, *****repeatedly*****, regardless of whether they manage to skirt the civility rules?
Yeah, repeatedly is right...it would be a good measure of the offense.
>could you judge some posters to be more of a group liability than an asset and act accordingly?
Makes good sense, Tabitha.
>why not look at eliminating the ones that cause the most damage, instead of just uniformly sanctioning everyone for curse words and insults?
Exxxactly. It's Bob's board. if it's designed for support, maybe he could step back and see that in some cases, things just spin out of control. And as he really DOES observe and respond to many of the posts, cutting out the rifraf would be safer, kinder and more comforting for the members that were threatened or hurt or whatever.
You are a wise woman. Even when you don't eat your veggies.
