Hi'ya, Lenny,

Welcome to Mister Poll, mister 3 day old newbie boy.

Quite opinionated in a NEGATIVE way about my above post.

Let me set you straight on a few things.

  1. The internet is full of blogs and boards that ALLOW users/moderators to delete unwanted posts, often before the public sees them. The reason? SPAM. Have you heard of that? And I'm not talking about the kind you can find on the shelves at your local grocery store.

  2. Security & Privacy issues? You sure are implying a lot to what I did NOT say or in anyway suggest. Who the %&$@ is asking for or trying to trick people into submitting their names or emails? All they have to do under my suggestion is submit a request using their USER name (which would become public anyway if YOU had your way and as is the way the Mr. P boards currently work).

  3. Asking for photos? Soliciting under age kids? Who the %&$@ is asking for that either? You'd be wise to curb any future insinuations such as those.l

  4. Lazy? Call me lazy again and I'll spank your butt, Mr. Newbieboy.

Your comments are what I'd expect from a shill for spammers and troublemakers and others who like to spam polls they don't agree with. They'd LOVE to know that people like you are out their trying to protect their butts.

So here's a suggestion for you:

Next time you join a website and want to start mouthing off criticisms of other people's posts and ideas, you might want to do so after you've been around long enough to properly digest your supper first.

Hi'ya Janice,

Yes, your idea works.

But mine could too. It actually would stop them.

It could work like Yahoo! Groups and other boards that require the moderator's permission to join.

That way a poll can potentially receive lots of votes (and traffic for Mr. P and ad revenue) and interested individuals can discuss it on the message board.

But when a little snot or troublemaker gets too annoying... ZAP! Their user name can be banned and the poll creator doesn't necessarily have to approve news ones until they read the first submitted post by a potential new user.

I also wish poll creators also had a weapon to optionally ZAP all of a user's messages on a given one of their polls (as well as option to delete just any specific message). Would stop spammers cold. Make it quicker to delete their junk than they can post it.

Hi'ya, Mr P,

When o when will an upgrade be available to ban specific users from a given poll?

Sure, you can delete their childish little rants and follow-up posts of them crying like a baby with wet diapers because their other posts were deleted.

But some annoying little brats will just try again later, sometimes in the middle of the night, and then you have to delete them again and again.

I wish there was a way to allow only specific users to post on your poll. That would get rid of some crybabies once and for all.

Hi'ya, Mister P.,

Yes, some pests get very determined. Even an exterminator would have a hard time getting rid of them.

But you are right. Banning a whole block of people for one bad rat doesn't seem fair. So maybe moderators being able to only block a user's name would work best.

What about an optional request system for private polls? What if users had to request permission, something that the moderator would then have to give?

Maybe a 'click here' to submit your user name to the poll moderator? It gets posted on a message thread and the moderator then has to do something to make the user able to post? Just thinking out loud.

Hi'ya, Mister P.,

You really need a way for poll moderators to ban users from posting messages on their polls who insist upon creating off-topic threads, even after they've been warned.

Or enable a way for only moderators or specified 'preferred users' to create new threads.

Sure, a moderator can delete unwanted threads or messages from a board. But you know how hard it is to get rid of rats, especially once they start procreating.

What do you think?
