Thanks Goy, I have my fears, I'm just not ready to surrender, since that would also mean my disconnecting from this site. Maybe I mis-assumed that ET has serious advertisers as clients, whose target audience is now slowly leaving this place. If, as it seems to evolve, instead it is becoming a advert-vehicle for n00b-luring schemers, who are interested in the remaining type of public, I'm out'a here. I think is is possible to make a serious forum for serious traders, funded by serious advertisers. Possibly this seriousness is not part of the US type of capitalism, but I still have hopes. Frankly I don't see how the simple measures I propose would in any way prohibit this site from making money. Your extended version, with voting, is too directed and prone to misuse. The ignore-button is vote enough, and will work wonders with some added chaining functionality. Maybe someone can clarify what purpose is served for the publisher by leaving the situation as is. Ursa..
