It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.
Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

Re: Watson75 - 4 day suspension extended to permanent
I've received a couple of snotty e-mails from Watson75, which included a request for permanent suspension (banning).
So be it.

b0ilingfrog, 6 hours (originally was 24 hours)
The hovertext message:
1 day suspension to get his attention. I've posted two futile messages to him, trying to get him to improve his message formatting (the most recent being here). - Adminnemooseus
The above cited message:
Attn. b0ilingfrog - Important writing style pointer -
Please insert blank lines between your paragraph (give the "enter" key an extra press). This both makes your messages look better and makes them easier to read.
I've previously tried to bring this situations to your attention. If this here little alert and request doesn't get the job done, a little alert-suspension and request is the next step.
Adminnemooseus
This announces the "little alert-suspension and request".
Adminnemooseus
Added by edit: I've reduced the 24 hour suspension to 6 hours, and added that information to the suspension hovertext message.
Edited by Adminnemooseus, : See above.

Larni, 24 hours
The suspension hovertext message:
1 day suspension. Pointless topic clutter. Other messages elsewhere in topic don't seem to have much more content. - Adminnemooseus
I'd post a warning message instead, but they just don't work.
