Demi-ban: screen all future comments from specific user
comments, comment screening
Force-screen comments from one particular user, when it's just that user whose comments warrant screening.
Occasionally there is a user who may be commenting in a particular journal or community in such a way that they do not quite warrant a ban, but fully warrant review from the admins/owner just to make sure their comments are productive.
Everybody else is commenting all right, it's just that one person.
Setting [class that includes commenter] to have their comments screened (whether that class be everyone, non-Access/Members, or anonymous) would be overkill for this situation, because they haven't brought along friends, it's just them. Turning on screened comments tends to dampen discussion and can be a lot of work to unscreen.
A demi-ban which makes all that user's future comments screened, but leaves everybody else's alone, would solve this problem on a technical level.
On a social level, this person could then use another account to evade the demi-ban and not be subject to screening. That's something that is likely to be noticed, and then the admins/owner would have to decide how to handle it. (The admins/owner may well decide that it's time to actually ban both accounts.)
Evading a demi-ban should not be a ToS-able offense. Evading an actual ban still should be.
Should be implemented as-is.
Should be implemented with changes. (please comment)
Shouldn't be implemented.
(I have no opinion)
