Well, it's called banning :D

I'm familiar with the concept since I've experienced this myself after becoming obsessed with a certain forum, only for it to become way over my head!  ???
 
Banning may work in some cases, though the concept of Banning may also lead to hand-balling the problem elsewhere, though it maybe over my head again!  ;)
 
I like the idea how The Get Along Gang highlights how characters are different, though personal attacks are personal attacks no matter how much you twist it, which still makes it unacceptable!  :(

TFM:
Where is my post?
 
Markus: PM's are a good idea, but if you try to write a PM and the result is just an insult, what can you do?

Well, banning has several levels - you can ban a user from posting, or from logging on altogether, or even banning their IP and thus preventing them from reaching the forum in a rudimentary way... The first level (post banning) is like the cooler you suggested...

But in any case, I consider banning to be extreme and the ultimate tool, only to be used when other means have been exhausted and you have to keep things on track...

Just to make things clear for people, neither me nor TFM/FS ever wrote a PM to each other. ;)

Amazing as it seems I've done all of that  8)  But the problem I have now is what limits do people set when they consider banning someone. In my case they offered to remove the ban if I was going to be good, but decided against it cause the forum was the issue!  :(  I was banned a couple of times from CPCZone cause of attitude problems, I didn't exactly arrive on their forum in the best of moods! Guess people would get sick when every year the Minigame competition was on, every year I was whinging about it!  ;D 

But in any case, I consider banning to be extreme and the ultimate tool, only to be used when other means have been exhausted and you have to keep things on track...
 
I guess that means you haven't been send to the cooler and then put on a Permanent Ban then? I should get a medal for that one!  :laugh:
 
Just occassionally I think my IQ goes below 85 and I decide to do silly things!
