Of course I agree the abuse is bad and should be banned, except maybe against extreme repeat-idiots who refuse to take several suggestions and hints.
 
Abuse has been present in the forums for a while, it mostly ended when Chris has put up the howto stickies saying it wasn't within the site's policy. AFAIK it did make one knowledgeable CPian move out, and brought many others back in line. Basically the same instructions are shown on the Edit Answer page in Q&A, however they seem less effective. Of course it is people who offend, and they need to be told off, however I also blame the Q&A format: it makes things look more anonymous and more volatile than the forums do, by mostly showing a single question at a time, and somewhat hiding the author's name. On forums you have an overview of threads and messages, with a column holding author names, and colors indicating scores; it gives much more of a community feeling IMO.

Luc Pattyn [Forum Guidelines] [Why QA sucks] [My Articles]

I only read formatted code with indentation, so please use PRE tags for code snippets.

I'm not participating in frackin' Q&A, so if you want my opinion, ask away in a real forum (or on my profile page).
