I really should look at the other forums on this, erm, forum more often. I cannot believe I missed this massive debate so long ago.
I have to say that I disagree with this entirely. If people have a problem with certain posters, please contact the moderators directly and ask for it to be dealt with. Throwing their names up for vote and a discussion like this is more akin to a classic witch-hunt than a democratic process.
For the record I voted no to both. I've not found either poster particularly offensive, but I can see why people dislike their posts. I don't like people being labelled as 'wums' or 'trolls' simply because they have a boisterous or careless way of putting things, and labelling people is a dangerous game. I'm sure that Fat Fred or myself could be labelled as WUMs in our own way because of the way that we sometimes post. Tolerance is a strange beast...
And I'm sure that is the view of the moderator/s on 'Cottage Corner'.
