    I personally don't think non-subscribers should be allowed to post. It helps allow for the juvenile behavior that disrupts the forum system. I don't mind non-subscribers reading posts, but I don't think they should be given the opportunity to manipulate threads in anyway. Consider a recent example I noticed where a player was actively making obnoxious comments and hadn't even made any moves on RHP!!! If they ban him he is just as privy to get another free account. I think RHP should make punishing bad behavior cost the deviant, and the only way to do that is make possible abuses only available to paying members

    This is not a good idea.

    I would like to see your post by non-sub and sub stats to back this up.

    One example is not ample enough.

    I'm not going to reinvent the wheel. This idea has been suggested and found to be a bad idea countless times in the past.

    no, that, unlike the opponent avrage rating idea, is not a good idea. I for one, have never posted ridiculously. But maybe you should be an active mover on this site, and that I do agree for.

    Subscribers are just as guilty of juvenile behavior. Typically, if any action is taken, they get a short forum ban (a week or less) and go right back to their old ways when they return.

    That's mighty generous of you to not mind us non-subs from reading your drivel as long as we're prevented from replying.

    As a subscriber you have an alert button, if you find any post 'obnoxious' enough that you consider it to be against the rules, just use that.

    I agree.
