I just started the hellbanning article, and found it tough to find reliable sources. I will look more a little later today -- meantime, if anyone else can find reliable sources, that would be great. I checked Google News archives, Google Books and Google Scholar, but found nothing much. Thanks Sue Gardner (talk) 20:15, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
I tend to agree with the Unsigned IP that this isn't article worthy, but I've corrected the information on Stack Overflow; there's no such option on the site and I'm a mod on the network; there is no such tool and no evidence of such a ban ever occurring. The blog post referenced was a theoretical exercise. --Sirtaptap (talk) 17:13, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for correcting that info on Stack Overflow! Although, question: how is this not article-worthy? Sure seems like it to me. Internet culture is a very article-worthy subject, and I imagine stealth-banning could easily prove controversial, as I doubt it hasn't already in other spheres of discussion.
=== Proper Noun? ===
In the last paragraph, in reference to Craigslist, the word ghosting is capitalised; is it a proper noun? Otherwise, it should be lowercase.
== Confusing Sentence ==
In the last paragraph, it says, "Reportedly, an ad is placed, confirmation is sent that it has been posted." I would fix this myself, but I'm unsure what it's saying: "if an ad is placed, confirmation is sent that it has been posted"? Or is it saying something else?
