Then I have U2U'd the draft to myself so I can read it later when I have cooled off a little and then decide whether I really should post such harsh words or not...

The current system and general attitude (just ignore them!) on ATS allows trolls to have their way with ATS, and punishes those that get annoyed by trolls.

For some - they seem to have the mentality of "Meh - I'll take the Warn in order to say something unacceptable to this person, what do I care, I have 4 more chances yet". Well...nah...not going to happen. I for ne will be banning without Warns, without consultation, without listening to excuses. Play nice or get out of the sandpit...can't find your way out of the sandpit, no problem, I'll help you.

A graduated warn system that raises the penalty [in points] of each warn gained, and/or a reduction in the amounts of warns it takes to get banned [which is currently 5...say reduce it to three]?
It almost would seem to me that it is this community that places the staff in a "damned if we do" and a "damned if we don't" situation(s). That a true or false case?
