Would you favor a 100 club?

Would you join a club here in LTUP that put members with fewer than 100 posts in the regular forum on your "ignore" list.

I realize it is an elitist notion to block out posters who merely come here to argue their politics. So maybe I'm an elitist... Who cares.

There are members with thousands of post who come here only to stir up or argue their politics. Why discriminate?

No. But I would join a club which would prohibit members with greater than 2,460 posts and fewer than 2,470 posts "upstairs" from posting silly polls on LTUP.

Maybe you should test your own ideas with a poll.
I promise to vote.

No.

Why codify and formalize an arbitrary metric of acceptability?

Lets see,

You cant buy beer until you are 21

You can't drive a car on the public byways until you buy a drivers license

They won't let you buy a gun here unless you are a citizen of the US.

So if someone who has just got into RC, who whilst looking around RC groups for the first time, discovers the basement, thinks that looks interesting, has a valid point about how good it would be for every home in Texas to be issued with an anti-aircraft gun, you would not want to hear that?
Or is it simply because you are just trying to stifle views other than your own? And a good way of doing that is to scare off or taunt newcomers to the forum so they don't come back?
And this is just another tactic, in that effort.
