    Red face tough question...

    thats a difficult one to answer. The one thing I liked about e-i at the start was that it was welcoming... But im sure new people dont want to feel nervous about stepping on anyones toes and getting booted.
    But i suppose something has to be done, and if this system is what would be proposed, 5 posts isnt enough. You could wrack up 5 posts very quickly. I think it would have to be a length of time, maybe 2-3 weeks, where if there were any inciteful threads/posts started by this person, then action could be rightfully taken...

    Again, this is a bit of a mine-field...
    Tough on the outside, sweet and sticky on the inside, and I rarely crumble.

    You cant on the one hand rat every newbie's first review and on the other hand try and encourage genuine punters to submit reviews to assist the punting fraternity. If I were a newbie and my first genuine review was ratted, my attitude would be quite simple......"sod this place, why should I bother my arse trying to inform my peers of who is a good/bad service provider".

    The recent case of a member who had all his reviews (and there were many of them) ratted, proves that a fake reviewer can be a long standing member just as easily as a newbie. Except that the long standing member is more likely to get away with it.

    in any event you make the point that the one thing you liked about E-I was it was welcoming which is fair enough but read this persons thread about banning and then ask yourself if you were a newbie would you feel like signing up.

    its about you and your ego.Its about you and your personal grudges.Its has fuck all to do with whats good for the site or not but waht you want which is no modding.By the way Stewie is very quiet.He has being down on you along time now.Enjoying?

    Sincerely,
    Westside.

    PS thats just a long winded version of saying your apparent concern for this site is a joke based on your attitude to the site owner if nothing else.
