That last wasn't Nick. Banned commenters on PT will have their comments unpublished and replies to those comments will go to the Bathroom Wall. That is a site-wide thing, not something that need be left to individual contributors.
This is not "frenzied bouncing". This is a considered application of the rules that we have laid down for comments.
We started the Bathroom Wall because there are a lot of comments that do not substantially contribute to consideration of a post, but we did not simply want to delete what commenters have said, even when it is digressive or otherwise inappropriate to the discussion. (And the contributor has the final say on that judgment.) So I think that moving comments to the Bathroom Wall should be pretty much a common thing for contributors to do. Now that I've made it easier to accomplish, I will be pushing contributors to make more use of it.
