I agree with 'mcgreg.'

Call me crazy but no one is going to 'shame' someone into doing anything. It seems like it was just an 'attention tactic,' nothing else.
The problem in the thread exacerbated when people tried to argue with him and got sucked in. If they let it go or just stuck to the main arguments and ignored the rhetoric and insults, then it might have been halfway productive.
Just my two cents...

There is more to it than just lynching.
The OP was most definitely the instigator. He started off very rude and used every opportunity to escalate it. Yes, others responded badly to him, but they really wouldn't have started a conflict of this nature without being taunted by the OP.
And further, the OP came right out and spat in the management over the whole banning idea, as if he was above the law. This in and of itself is reason for a short timeout.
Remember that he isn't being thrown out permanently, this is a temporary banning and an example to the community that we are expected to respect the rules.

I propose that when Gordboy gets out of jail we just all ignore all of his threads, including this one right now... Let his shit sink to bottom as fast as possible. Then we wouldn't have to deal with it anymore...

Well, I'm down. Problem with this, though, is that we need total cooperation from everybody if this strategy is to be successful.

Well I, for one, won't be investing my time in sabotage...
Collaborative action has already proved to succesful, but banning isn't on the long run.
If we want to preserve freedom of speech, but not the downsides, we must get over stupid human instinct that requires governments...
Given the fact that most people here do not belong to the 80% idiot population group on earth I'd like to believe that at least somewhere on earth politics aren't required...

I think we should practice by letting this thread die already, it's gone on long enough.
