This text became long as I tried not only to explain my vision but also to counter all arguments even before they are stated. Therefore, if you are going to give an opinion before reading the full text, simple don't do. If you do, probably I alredy gave a decent counter argument EVEN before your post.
 
A short overview is included, so you can jump there and read it instead of the full text. It has only 4 paragraphs.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
_________________________________________________
I have a solution to permanently solve any "ghost problems" we're having actualy.

We can divide the forum in the two following sessions:
A) Members only;
B) Members and ghosts.

So, B) will look like 4Chan because ghosts will be there to bother, annoy, spam, blow countries and everything that make us back to basics, acting like the true apes that we, puny humans, are. Better: cave apes.

And then A) would be our true civilizated, Dwarvin-phase passed, forum, where advanced beins such as NORMAL PEOPLE lie down.

So, if you want to avoid ghosts, you can stay only on A and don't need to go to the B part of the forum, but if you are tryin to withstand evolution, go to humanity's rough state of development and feel free to enter the cretaceous period, exiting the cenozoic era. Welcome to "planet B".

With this method, no message need to be deleted and no one need to be banned. Actually, the B side of the forum is actualy the current DN state: full of the so called trolls who dwell in a land of no one. So no one can be banned for driving an insult there. It cannot be called the satan's empire, though, because empires are at least organized.

The A side, on other hand, can have many people banned as they try to undermine all the society making us back to the tribal age. Messages can be deleted and only MEMBERS appear there.

_______________________________________________

SHORT Overview in 4 paragraphs of the solution:
The argument of "ghosts are important as people does not need to register to ask questions" prevails over "planet" B;

The corollary that tell us that people will create account just to post once and leaves, consequently, applies to "ape-planet" B;

The argument of "ghosts should be deleted and banned" applies to "civilization" A, as ghosts simple does not exist there;

The corollary that tell us that people should have offensive messages deleted and their accounts/IP banned applies to "kingdom" A, as there are rules and guidelines applied.

Sorry, but I don't get what the "solution" here is. All I see is that you laid down the information for us, which most of us already know.

But then again, I'm tired right now and I should really go to sleep, so I probably missed something crucial.

You did.
Divide the forum in two sessions.
In one, ghosts are allowed, in other they aren't.

So, if you don't like ghosts, find them offensive and think mod should ban them, just stay in the part were the only members are allowed.

If you like ghosts and think some players may come to ask a question and don't need an account at all, go to the other side were ghosts are allowed.

Ghosts arent the problem it's getting redinks1 attention. Wich if I say myself we already have i have seen him lurking quite a few times. He's probaly biying his time figuring out what to do and how to do it. Or he's just oblivious to everything here.

Yes, I've seen him lurking a couple of times too, and when I see him I have a vaguely hopeful yet desperate feeling, and I end up disappointed when he goes away and nothing seems to have happened. I hope he does have something in mind or at least that his wheels are turning.

I like Dwarves, I'm an "advanced bean such as NORMAL PEOPLE" and this isn't 4Chan. Drink cement.

Life? What's that? Can I download it?! 
Please, read this redink, I think it may work. It will become easier to ban accounts that way.

Most of us are adults and/or teenagers. I think we should be able to just simply ignore a person who annoys us, without Redink creating us superb stuff. Direct insults are of course a different thing, but even then I'd rather have people ignore.

I'm pretty sure Skull was merely expressing an opinion as to how this community should be controlled. A democrat in an over-run despotism, I'd say.

This. Pity is doesn't work that way

I agree with what Scratcher said in a different thread. It would be a shame to remove ghost posting and in the main it's not abused at all.

I find that avoiding my room when it gets dirty to make a huge mess and therefore impossible to sleep in. That is what Forum B would be, my bedroom on a bad day.
