This is just an suggestion for the staff. You guys know how we used to have this karma system, and in some other forums members have this warning meter. So I was wondering if the staff could install some sort of component into the board with something similar, but it's for spam.
But the spam meter is not for any members to use, it is only for the staff to use. I mean they are the only people who truly know what spam is in this forum right?? :rolleyes: So with the meter they can add something like a spam-strike to any user they believed spam. Any person that gets two spam-strikes will get a temp ban, and then gets let back in within the same week, if they receive their third strike BAM you're gone for the month. Three more of those month-bans and youre out forever, so at least no one can say that this forum is cruel and didn't give them any chance.
NOTE: this thread was not created in response to the epidemic of spam-initis wave that hit AO...just thinking that we don't want to become like Major League Baseball and Steroids
