- Soft Ban
We hope to never enable this feature for anyone! but this is somewhat like a soft ban! if you make lots of threads (spam) a day, and lots of posts that don't make sense ! you will be "soft banned", basically this means for 5 days, you can still browse the forum, but it will be very hard to browse, posts don't fully load and/or might take up to 30 seconds for a thread to load! you get the idea. Furthermore, moderators can ban a user from a "THREAD" now! so that user can no longer post in that thread but free to post in all others.
Haha, I think you should change the name of this feature to who it is intended for :)

It is interesting that the decision to have separate discussion forums, serious (political) vs not-so-serious (relaxation), is reversed after many years. I recall there were many complains back then when the political debates were very hot and pointed, hence the decision to have two sub-forums under General.
Given the level of forum activites I thinks it is a good decision to merge them at this point, as it was a good decision to separate them back then.

Agreed, I also think people are bit more cool headed now , so hopefully we should see less personal insults and more smart discussions.

Ture,
and indeed I do feel a bit that way about myself, though still have to work on myself a lot, i.e to not allow my passion blind me and take over my logic and temper, or learn to listen to others without pre-judgements and give a chance to hear them with an open mind rather than a shaped opinion of the world.
