    Bans for Stupidity?

    Hi,

    Does SP ban people for complete and utter stupidity?

    Say if someone was spreading around useless FUD and BS that nobody agrees with, but a newbie could easily get confused. And I'm talking about the people who do this and don't contribute anywhere else. These people don't add anything to SP, they simply misinform ignorant members...

    Does SP keep an eye on stuff like this? Delete the threads at least?

    Regards,
    Nathan Wong

    The issue of banning problem users is a private matter for the moderators of SitePoint and will not be discussed openly.

    SitePoint would never ban a user for stupidity alone.
