There has been several scamming attempts by a certain user who shall remain nameless. I'm just asking for explicit permission for ranks to kick scammers, with a warning for minor things and without a warning for major infractions. --LiquidTalk 21:57, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Support - As nominator. --LiquidTalk 21:57, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - Just use common sense and kick them. You don't need explicit permission. Real Crazy 22:02, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

I'd rather get it for users like this particular one. --LiquidTalk 22:04, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - If something like this is happening in the chat, I'm sure people will ask them to stop. If they continue and are causing a disruption, booting them should not be an issue. No need for unnecessary restrictions. --Aburnett(Talk) 22:15, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

I suppose I worded the title badly. Scamming is currently not against the rules. I'm just asking that ranks be given permission to kick persistent scammers. --LiquidTalk 22:20, February 6, 2011 (UTC)
People should only be kicked if they are persistent enough to cause a significant disruption. Unless they are spamming the channel with text every 2 seconds asking someone to trade them a SGS because they don't like the restrictions lending has, it shouldn't be a major issue. --Aburnett(Talk) 22:38, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

You already have it Our cc rules include abiding by the User Treatmentment policy, and one could easily extend that to include not scamming others. It just isn't how civilized wikians behave. Seriously, this requires no discussion. Kick them.--Degenret01 22:33, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

RS:UCS. If the pencil pushers have an issue with kicking users who are there solely to harm others, that's quite honestly their problem. Dtm142 22:37, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Withdrawn - Well, I suppose what Degen/Dtm said can work. --LiquidTalk 22:46, February 6, 2011 (UTC)
