I really think this is exaggerated in many people's minds. I don't see it anything more then an extension of the warning system which is already in
place. If someone makes a post or thread which violates the T&C's, they get a warn mark which can be seen on their avatars. If they produce a
personal prediction with a specific date and event which does not happen, they get an appropriate and similar mark.
It would not mean that they would get ignored as other members would still be able to look past it if they choose.
It would not infringe their rights to free speech as it wouldn't stop them from posting another bogus prediction thread.
It would highlight for the rest of us, at a glance, that this member has, in the past, posted a prediction thread which has failed.
By the tone of the majority of the responses which this thread has gotten, I'd say this is not a very popular idea anyway.
Was just an idea which I thought (and still think) has merit and would be useful.
oh, and sorry if you were offended by me saying that you didn't read the thread, that was not my intention.
