HB Kangaroo Court

For HBers accused of witchcraft, herecy and Troll-ishness .

  [vote for,
against]

Some HB ideas are good; some are nice but impractical;some are rubbish..but funny; some are just plain rubbish. And then there are ideas and annotation threads that turn into a mess of ridicule. I propose a forum in the style of a courtroom trial, where so called trolls can be invited to refute the accusations (or continue with a self-condemning tirade). Other HBers can listen and nod their head and smile and then condemn them en masse. Hopefully this would reduce the amount of unfunny, uninteresting comment elsewhere in the site.

I prefer the Tony Hancock/Sid James version myself.

       There's a point. Do we get a hotel room if we serve on the jury? Room service? Spa-bath? Bell-hops?
