Ohh I've thought it thru pretty good...but just because we can use a gun doesn't mean you have the right to shoot someone when you please.
As for my nickname... ignore it, this is a serious discussion about a plugin or log feature. If there isn't a way to block it which is fine and I understand the reason for not wanting to create it or have it available at least have a way to log them to give a server admin a chance to confront the user about their complaints. As it stands now you can just join server after server and press F7 all day long or the same one over and over again which may or may not become a issue for that server - Valve hasn't made it known its intentions or how it will police these reports. It's fair to say that the community as a whole needs to protect its rights if it's going to put the resources into a server and let players join. Now if that player doesn't agree with the setup or how things are run and they complain then it still should allow the Administrator/owner of that server the ability to contest the problem or at the very least add that users SteamID to a ban log to prevent them from rejoining and reporting over and over.
