I have thought of an interesting scenario. When the rude person reaches a
certain level of rudeness, he/she automatically gets transferred to
PlanetOfTheApesGroup and similar rudes find themselves in their own company.
If this seems too extreme, an alternative would be automatic transfer to
Dehumanist Group or for the extremely cautious listowner there would be
humanist2 where the rude people have exclusive babbling rights among
themselves. We could also subscribe candidates there whose societies have
just emerged from the jungle within the last 10 years or so, subject to
appeal via an oral presentation with no notes as to what the differences are
between civilization and the jungle especially with reference to courtesy
and respecting the opinions of others and open-mindedness to alternatives as
ideals if not accomplished facts.
