We at Pickled Politics do not take banning people lightly. We want to ensure that people can debate freely, and we prefer to let Picklers deal with any abusive commenters, since the well-reasoned arguments deployed by the former against the latter are the worst punishment one can dish out. We often prefer an ad hoc approach, deleting individual comments while letting the perpetrator comment in future. However, there comes a point when a persistently abusive commenter can only be dealt with by banning them. Thus the commenter known as ‘Munir’ is now banned. He will be deleted whenever he appears. Any other racists who do not listen to warnings, whatever their creed or colour, will also be banned.
