    As locking threads and banning people becomes the normal way of dealing with issues, I think it's time we did something about it.

    The forum isn't of much use to E-I if none of us are here. So here is my idea. When you think someone has been unfairly banned, go on strike for the same period. Don't read the boards; don't post to them. When the ban is over, come back.

    So I am now banning myself for a week. If anyone else feels the same, feel free to join in.

    “All right,” said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.

    Perhaps a mass migration to another site would be better.

    Great idea , if Shirley is not unbaned today I will strike until she is back . No reading , no posting and I WILL CHANGE MY TOUR as well , meaning no adverts , no money . Its time to put the foot down or like my granny used to say : Never try to fuck a fucker ...
    Sorry to all my guests in advance .
    P.S. I will check in between , if Shirley is back , just a peek.
    the girl from next door

    Said it before, Gordo. You should start your own site competing against E-I!

    Well, in all honesty the way of raising issues goes against the grain of this principal. Perhaps if people tried to resolve issues through the features we have such as 'report post' or 'report PM' or good old fashioned 'letting one of us know a problem rather than taking the law into your own hands' would be a better preemptive strategy?

    The fact is people make a public issue of a situation; managers/mods try to resolve things peacefully, we are accused of censorship and abused for it, when the majority of the time all we are trying to do is make sure that individual posters don't get hurt or offended.

    This site will never be Utopian people, as people love a good online drama. The problem with this idea is that when somebody is banned, there is always a divide of opinion. Perhaps that might be a good idea? At least that way they will be a reduced chance that people will argue!
