Thats fantastic. Thanks. No police is like no forum moderation but irl. And this forum seems to have a ton of banned memebers.

if you take it in the literal sense, sure. but im pretty sure that book is talking about removing the institution of policing and replacing it with something like neighborhood militias or at least neighborhoods voting on which people get to police their area.

i know it seems like there's a lot of banned users, but out of the near 15 years this website has been a forum with nearly 25,000 members there has been a total of 380 users banned. 80% of those were spam bots, but even leaving those in, that equals:

380 ÷ 25000 = 0.0152 = 1.52%

so less than 1.52% of people with registered accounts have been banned in 15 years. i'd say we're more than fair given that average.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$55.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $55.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $55.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $55.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
