Can we all just stop fighting please?

#1
As we all know, 2 of the funniest members of the site have recently been binned. It's the internet. It's not that real.

The real problem is with sockpuppets and belmers who are trying to invade the site with utter drivel and THAT IS ALL rubbish.

From reading stuff on Faceache, there are several members of ARRSE willing to quit. My advice? Suck it up and man up Princess.

If you don't like a post from a cheeser - flag it up - little button on the left which says "Report this post" when you hover over it on your mouse.

Stop being so precious. It's not our train set - it's the dads' and if you don't like it, you know where the door is.

Why can't we all just get along?

Very cuddly and nice, but let's have a putsch instead. All those posters with, say, oh I don't know - over 3500 posts can vote for their three least favourite throbbers, who get banned. No ROPs, No ROPs, just binned.

Who are the posters who have been binned?

Picking up the scab, there seems to be a whole social thing going on here on ArRSe with various sub-groups and societies forming, even icons that are adored...

Someone give me the gen.

Agree in principle, but think length of service is more important. Quality, not qauntity and all that. Say anybody pre-2007?

Where else could you jeopardise someone's crust earning and expect to be welcomed back time after time?

The real issue is sock puppets and multiple ids. 1001Tossers, Westpoint, Camberwell Carrot etc. I understand Mods need 2, a personal one and an official one, but is there nothing that can be done to stop every idiot that wants 2 or more

I seem to remember that every id needs a unique email address, can that check not extend to IP address too?

Fair point. How about a gizmo that records poster ID& IP then when a post goes up from ID A it appends the tag "ID B also posted from this IP address n minutes ago" if say teh IP was used by another within the last hour

Would identify the sock puppets and make it a less effective tactic

It would have to be a tad more complicated than that, I have 2 usernames, this is my normal one, but haven't used the other in months, but have used both from both work and home.

How come every internet row that ever happens, never really goes critical until someone dives in shouting 'calm down, hey, let's all stop arguing' or similar? It even includes a reference to whose train set it is.

How about I set up a sockpuppet list in the NAAFI and you lot put the names in there and let the owners of the site decide?

Communal computers? Dii terminals for example, or an internet cafe/local library. When various people went to one of the many drunken rampages at Dales we'd all log on to arrse using her PC. it would have looked like a variety of arrsers were one person.
