Oops, 7 Days. Hey look I don't update on weekends.

New asshole prevention feature!

If your posts get deleted enough, you will be automatically banned from posting on the site.

If any legitimate users currently unable to post should email me.

Thanks.

Alright, what moron came up with that?  It's great!

Hmmm. Maybe now that it has an anti-spam feature, I should give it a go as "the" forum for marktaw.com. I want a no-registration & no-spam forum that can keep up with the spammers.

What are the rules? Is only spam deleted, or will I get deleted if I call someone bad names, or play devil's advocate on some controversial position? Will I know when my posts are deleted, or does it pretend to show them to me so I don't know what's going on?

"What are the rules?"

Same as always.

"Is only spam deleted, or will I get deleted if I call someone bad names, or play devil's advocate on some controversial position?"

Pretty much no, just don't be a dick.

"Will I know when my posts are deleted, or does it pretend to show them to me so I don't know what's going on?"

If your post gets deleted, it's gone.  You no longer see it either.

As far as I know, you know if you've been deleted, so you have to be on your best behaviour after that.

As for why you get deleted... your guess is as good as mine. Have you ever been deleted in the past?

Moderators are excluded. 

(I Had to add that feature because I've been deleted a few times today and I couldn't figure out why *I* couldn't post)

IDK. Have I? There was a time where Flasher T deleted EVERYTHING I posted.

I think, knowing that deletions lead to banning, moderators will take it a lot more seriously now.

That's not a bug, that's a feature.

if the posts are deleted, then undeleted, does the poster remained banned?

WOOHOO! FLAME WAR!

So... regulars can say anything they want knowing they won't be deleted because moderators won't delete their posts.

But everyone else will be on their best behaviour because they'll get banned.

I like it. :)

and you'll have to post a notice in a public area for three weeks followed by a signed affidavit if you plan on changing your handle ???

You'll know your post was deleted, so you can protest it.

I've not noticed any posts deleted, but sometimes I can't find comments that I made before because I don't remember the title of the thread.

Problem you'll get Mark if you have Bayesain filters is that you will have to be on top of the stuff all the time, unless you train them to reject almost nothing.

The bayesian filter would have worked brilliantly, I think, if it was actually applied to ONLY spam. There really needed to be a second "editorial delete" option on JoS.

Eh.  There was a time once when muppet "went off his meds" and deleted everything I posted for an afternoon.

I'll risk it, though.
