The Forum will always be what the Forum is, 98% crap, 1.8% decent, 0.2% brilliant.
Barring conversation, even stupid ignorant conversation, won't get rid of it. It'll just percollate into all the other threads insead, derailing one and all. In fact, I'd say it's better to let the chuckleheads have their "lol fire Rex, trade Sanchez today" thread, so they have someplace the more decent posters can see for what it is and choose to ignore. Banning the thread, or the poster, won't get rid of the idea that some folks really think that way.
It's a sure sign of forum fatigue when one starts really railing hard against such sillyness. You cannot hope to stop it, not in a world full of chuckleheads and their ilk being in the majority.
May as well demnd there be no more Francessa threads (not as if I know ANYONE who'd be so silly as to make THAT demand, lol.
