    I've been on other forums and when people try to derail threads the people are banned from the individual threads. Why can't BHW do that instead of deleting an entire thread? A few people violating the rules shouldn't ruin things for everyone else.

    Is this referring to the Pro Russia thread?
    Who did you want banned from that thread?

    People that were trolling with political talk and conspiracy theories should be banned from threads. One could make a thread on Kolkata or Bangkok and it will be up until BHW shuts down.

    I think the mods here are pretty good doing their job 24hrs, and I don't believe that we need yet another module for doing something that's already done pretty efficiently. The module isn't technically feasible as per my opinion.
    Mods do not delete threads that go heywire, they just close it most of the time as per my observation. They only delete threads that are considered as spam. I guess we should better follow the rules instead of acting weird everywhere.

    Thanks for your suggestion, although we don't ban on the spot, we warn and then add infractions.

    That just makes too much work for the mods. They don't get paid to police this place. I would NEVER want to have that "job" - never. Everyone should send them a few bottles of booze for the holidays so they make it though 2015.

    Although I'm on your side with a lot of what you wrote (and especially what Vrill wrote)- politics is not allowed on BHW.
    Accept the rule and discuss those topics in other boards.

    I know the rule on politics, I don't talk about politics in any thread.

    I have been on forums where people get banned for opening politically motivated threads and post about cheap living standards of their countries.

    Its possible in vBulletin 4.2.0 and above, BHW is vbulletin 4.2.2

    The name of the module is actually called "Ban Users From a Thread"

    This is bhw not Reddit , here mods also have to earn money like ordinary users and they are not going to watch bhw whole day.

    It might be, but why would you load that module and increase the load time? If that module runs, server has to check in every thread whether you are permitted to view/reply ( or what ever permission you are talking about) or not. That would make a considerable difference in the server resource usage IMO. Then comes the extra moderation work as well.

    If you go for modules, I'd rather vouch for the @username with notification to the mentioned user...

    +1 to that. That's something I have always wanted too. @username, or quote notification, both are pretty useful!

    I am very disappointed that moders removed the post about Russia. Coz there were alot true thing. No? So why are you delete this thread? Now I understand what double standards and the US meaning and alsoon this forum. I saw that you all sycophants os black monkey in the white house.
    Suck black dick of black president those, who hate Russia.

    Широка страна моя родная,
    Много в ней лесов, полей и рек!
    Я другой такой страны не знаю,
    Где так вольно дышит человек.

    От Москвы до самых до окраин,
    С южных гор до северных морей
    Человек проходит, как хозяин
    Необъятной Родины своей.

    Всюду жизнь и вольно и широко,
    Точно Волга полная, течет.
    Молодым везде у нас дорога,
    Старикам везде у нас почет.

    Широка страна моя родная,
    Много в ней лесов, полей и рек!
    Я другой такой страны не знаю,
    Где так вольно дышит человек.

    Над страной весенний ветер веет.
    С каждым днем все радостнее жить,
    И никто на свете не умеет
    Лучше нас смеяться и любить.

    Этих слов величие и славу
    Никакие годы не сотрут:
    Человек всегда имеет право
    На ученье, отдых и на труд

    Широка страна моя родная,
    Много в ней лесов, полей и рек!
    Я другой такой страны не знаю,
    Где так вольно дышит человек.
