    I would like to know who would like to ban me and why. Post like I'll never see it, because I'm unlikely to involve myself in anything petty. I think the whole public banning branch of Sciforums is petty, parsimonious, pusillanimous, and Puritanical. That's why I never post here.

    I´ll not vote. What for? Do you want to look and wait how many will participate here. As a kind of experiment? Since Ban threads always get so
    much attention? That could get interesting.

    I suppose if you're asking if you should be banned, yes is the only answer. I figure "Help hype, vote yes.". If someone else had asked I would have probably said no, but I'm not sure. I do not like you in general so I might vote yes to ban you just to enjoy the thought of your banning.

    On the other hand, I don't really care if you stay around or not and I don't expect the results of this poll to be taken seriously, or that it will be in favor of your banning.

    All these self-banning polls are silly and pointless. If someone wanted you banned, you would know it by now. If anyone wants to be banned, it is easy. It is called "leaving". I don't think anyone has asked you to do either, AFAIK.

    I voted no. The reason I voted no is because he's right. Most of the ban threads are nothing but a lynch mob, as I have stated in the past. It should be the sole discretion of the moderators/admins of this forum to ban those people they see fit to ban. It should not be in the hands of people who have nothing better to do then pick on others from the safety of their little clique. Ban threads are frivilous and only point out stupidities on both sides and make people feel unwelcome despite the end result.

    Ardi, as I've pointed out before ... Porfiry has veto power over all ban threads. Hence, if there is a lynch mob, he still has the right and the ability to reject it.

    Still doesn't change my view. Even if he veto'ed it, the person the thread was about would still feel singled out and uncomfortable. And the way people get insulted and mocked in those threads is simply not pleasent. Admins/Mods are the only ones who should have the ability ban people. If you simply don't like someone, complain to the mods or use the ignore button. It's better than voting them off the island in some sort of popularity contest.

    Yeah, but that is not what is happening here. Hypewaders started this poll himself. If he feels singled out and uncomfortable, that is the price of standing up and asking for a vote on how popular you are at the moment. The whole concept is childish.

    I would never vote to ban him based on this, but I don't mind saying my respect for him has dropped a notch. And I only say that because he has publicly asked.

    I tempted to vote yes, because I think it is just silly to start a ban thread for yourself.


    Can this please end?

    Could there be a rule that states that you are not allowed to start a ban thread on yourself?

    The punishment being a ban?

    No, the punishment should not be a ban. The thread should just be closed and locked and dumped into the Cesspool as pointless and stupid. It is a waste of bandwidth and time (he says as he posts for the third time on the thread. Hmmm, a tad hypocritical perhaps. Ok, I am done).

    (the punishment of a ban was a slight humurous touch. Should have used a smiley, like so:

    Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

    )

    I would vote yes if it was just yes with no "let me explain', I don't want to explain, so i'll abstain from voting.

    I had not checked to see if "self-banning" threads were already here. It was just another lame pot-shot at these type threads, so we can let it die like all failed attempts at humor. I also was curious about my most annoying habits, but my detractors don't seem to want to be specific. Total failure on both counts. As punishment, I am banning myself until further notice.
