I have not yet found the board that had the collective will to do that.

I would say that is pretty strong evidence, given 20 years existence, hundreds of thousands of posts on hundreds of boards, that that "solution" doesn't work. It's like asking people "please" don't drive like a maniac through a school zone because children don't understand that running front of cars is bad for them.

After enough dead kids, you make rules, you enforce them, and if someone continues to violate the rules with impunity you ban them from the road.

Not so hard, really. That's how "the collective will" actually works.
