Is it harder to permaban someone?

Since permabanning someone takes effort and just, you know, avoiding a site doesn't, I'd say yes. There's just not much of an argument to having to perm someone who could just not log in. If that isn't something one can do, then they must not really want to leave the site.

That said, maybe in the future The Mods and Admins could agree on adding a 'Delete Profile' feature.

I actually don't like the idea of deleting profiles. Just opening up old threads and having the OP be "DeletedUser2091" with no avatar would be really sad.

Well, that kind of stuff would be regulated.

Because what is so hard about not logging on?

Is it harder to permaban someone?

I imagine people want to be permabanned because their life sucks or whatever.

However, if they're the type of person that feels they need to be permabanned to remove temptation of visiting, then they have bigger problems. They might just bug the mods later to bring them back or create a new profile.

If people are ashamed of the things they said perhaps, then its time to just make a new online identity.

With that said, I totally understand why the mods have taken the stance of, "fuck off with that temporary or permaban shit." Dealing with peoples weird, illogical requests just becomes a nuisance. As a long time user, I've seen it many times and sometimes just for attention.

This is the internet, I'm sure the mods deal with a bunch of unstable people.

just post some porn or make a thread calling everyone out or some shit OP, go out in a blaze of glory 

that way the mods have no choice but to say get this motherfucker out of here

don't actually do that.

I can confirm from personal experience that this doesn't actually work.

So everyone here that says he should just stop logging don't give a shit about being in control of their personal data. To ask someone to go back and edit all their posts to nothing is overbearing to the user. A simple delete profile isn't asking for much. I'm going to look into EU online rights law more even though I'm not even European because frankly this seems to be in violation.

How would you like it if Facebook or any other shit social media site said nope sorry can't delete your posts, pics or profile?

In your case, you didn't actually want it, since you still come here and post quite often.

People using logic against me is one of my weaknesses

Another one bites the dust...

Damn.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I agree with this. I mean I may be in a shitty depressed mind set and out of haste I say permban me.

However a couple years later, I may want to come back. This adds even more effort in asking someone to unban you or creating a new profile.

I think that's one of the main reasons they stopped doing it. I remember there was one guy that was "perma"banned like 7 times because he kept requesting them and then coming back and asking to be unbanned.
