Ooh, sounds evil. Could create a wonderful set of drama as people try to find out why their ignore count is going up. Except for the trolls of course who would love it.

Another forum I visit has a 'thanks for that thread' button. Any good?

I've been following activity on the phpBB developers website, and holding off on upgrading to a new version as they've still found that their anti-spambot systems aren't even scratching the hot yellow condiment. They're working on a new pluggable design for CAPTCHAs which should be ready RSN, so I'm waiting for an announcement on that.

It does have some of the features that people here have been suggesting, and others to improve management of trolls or spammers, etc -
* subforums
* more flexible moderation, inc moderation queues
* Report a post to mods/admins (and mods can now ban etc)
* warnings/suspensions
* better logging
* multi-quoting
* drafts
* attachments
* Friend/Foe list (ignore user!)
