Howdy all. Just a quick note to let everyone know how we handle fans from other teams who drop by the site, especially over the last couple days.
Starting a couple days ago, when a user is 'flagged' as a troll by any other user, they are sent to our blog dashboard. We take a look at the user and based on what we find, we can let them pass, warn them or ban them.
Over the last couple days people who have been banned have hit all of these criteria:
1. Not members of the SBN fansite for the team they support (either Winging It In Motown or Nucks Misconduct).
2. User names created for one day or solely to antagonize (I highly doubt that "WingsOwnYou" would be a great username if you planned on hanging out at WIM much).
3. Not one useful comment.
Plenty of fans from other teams and sites have been here and taunted us. I don't understand why that's fun, exactly, but whatever. At least they're fans of the other SBN sites and can usually engage in some sort of give-and-take.
Over the last four years we have never really policed our site and have usually let the folks with anger issues piss into the internet wind all they like. However, when your sole purpose, as determined by the above three criteria, is to come here and annoy, we can do without you, thanks.
Oh, we also reserve the right to ban you for no reason at all, so be careful, Mirtle.
