It wouldn't do anything. We have a nice, long list of "repeat offenders" that no matter how many times you tell them to be civil, they either can not, or more likely, will not, as they are aware that there are no consequences to their actions. Plain and simple, mob rule does not work if there are no "teeth" to actually enforce the rule. -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering - Strategic Lead x86 Architecture Team Games - Developer Gentoo Linux
