i think its a fine idea, but i think its ineffective. 

take the death penalty for instance.  when youre committing a crime you're not thinking "Oh darn, hope they dont kill me for this." 
you know youre doing something wrong; you do it anyhow and consequences follow. 

people who are spamming either know what they're doing and therefore should deal with consequences.   OR they'll be smart enough (most of them [hopefully]) to heed the warning they're given when they get called for spamming and then its a non issue with that now informed, law biding armor citizen. 

so ultimately demerits are not a deterrent for spamming.

there could be problems though...
if i had a merit and you took that away i would be.. uh lets just put it this way extremely mad. And what if you get demerited for no reason? that could cause problems and confusion and some mad people.

Why was my post in this topic removed?

There is obvious spam in here that wasn't removed.

BS

I like the idea. Spammers really piss people off and to see them get pissed back would bring us others some joy :P

Well, i don't think the sake of demerits would be to see spammers get pissed...

I think it is more to provide a punishment. Someone who does something bad, but then go unpunished are likely to do it again. People who do something bad and then are punished, they usually will not do it again.

But then, if the spammer does not care, it doesn't really matter whether you hand it out or not, it then just becomes like a symbol, that tells everyone that the person is a spammer and that you shouldn't talk to them.
