Psychological screening

Do you think there should be some kind of psychological questionnaire added to the sign up page on AO? March Hares spring to mind.

I think they do last quite a while. I'm beginning to wonder whether our lenient approach on that is the right one, since there are various signs that our general members are getting fed up of having to read their anti-establishment rantings.

It's a surprisingly tough decision to push that ban button though - much, much more so than I assumed before I was a mod. Back then I thought I'd happily wade through the forum shovelling people through the exit doors. Now it comes to it, I'm no hanging judge.

Some do yes - their persistance is almost admirable

A minorities opinion shouldn't tarnish the entire site though

Liken it to cats with their prey - let's have some 'fun' before the kill

Gagging orders and banning people because of their opinions?

Eh? Are you talking about my post? Because I think you've misinterpreted if so. The only opinion likely to result in a ban is along the lines of "I'm allowed to insult whoever I like, and the mods have no right to stop me.", which is, as it happens, more prevalent than you'd think.

I would never pass such a test.
Any test for that matter.

It was meant tongue in cheek. With reference to your pre-emptive modding in 'that religion thread' and hinting that anti-establishment opinions could be grounds for a ban.

But t'was a joke

There's no need for psychological screening on here. As long as you currently own an Alfa, you're as sane as the rest of us that do.

When I've finished my current session of ECT's I'll check his ward out, if that's ok with you all?
