BannedPosted by john h on 6/05/03 at 13:28 (121041)
On the only other board I follow (a sports board of course) one fellow was just banned for life. The owner of the board basically said it was his board, his money and if we did not like it go some where else. The guy was banned was a jerk and had been a constant troublemaker for over a year. First guy ever banned form the board. One guy posted back this action reminded him of Mein Kemp and Hitler which he was currently reading. Wonder what his shelf life will be.

The 'Benign Dictator' model of running a board, a club, a company, or whatever, seems to work very nicely as a solution to trouble. Those who continually behave like jerks can be banned, and they go elsewhere and are out of the picture, and probably really don't care much anyway; and then the remaining people who get along can really enjoy things. Groups that consist of people who get along together in their discussions and interactions are a lot happier than those with someone hellbent on stirring things up and causing trouble.
The guy who thought the board owner was like Hitler, must have missed the 'Benign' part! (grin)
I agree..... he is toast!
