If they explained themselves, instead of posting "TRAINER FIX NOW PLEASE" And litteraly running away and hiding like scared animals. We would be able to make them see the light, or direct them to the door.
I've certainly been known to troll but I think abusive members should be at least suspended from posting comments.
If you're going to whine about something sure you can do that but be civil. If you're going to be abusive about it you certainly know what you're doing and deserve a smack down.
Blocking posts/replies from this member should be for a 30 day period imho.
Though I would recommend a 3 part process.
First offense: Issue a warning (depending on the severity.)
Second Offense: 72 hour ban.
Third Offense: Permanent Ban (with possible appeal, depending on the situation. Case by case.)
Fourth: Permanent ban with no appeal. They've had plenty of chances.

Optionally, you could just ban them from posting and allow them to keep their membership benefits of downloading trainers. It solves the problem of the complainers and abusive posting, and allows them to keep the part they paid for.

i do like the idea of a posting ban though, this seems like a useful tool for the moderators to have and would help to prevent cases where a title gets retired for and overabundance of complaint posts.
its just that there are alot of people who are going Yeah. So that posting ban might be the best idea. I mean, they'll never explain themselves.
