Get a timeout?
I would say it is largely self-moderated. It is very rough and tumble around here, but that is just the downside of free speech. Vulgarity trumps ideas in some parts of the HROT universe. So be it.
It makes sense. I’m not demanding anything. I don’t own the site so I don’t make the rules. Insofar as rules for appropriate debate they are nonexistent and the quality of the arguments reflect it. Just my observation.Well, that doesn't make any sense. You're IMPLYING that there should be MORE removals, and therefore more censored participants. How do you moderate it better?
Noted. Some, ahh, less astute ones came over in the modern day Trail of Tears, along with a cohort from the more seasoned side.Yep, I present an assload of Noles as evidence.
I have never understood why there should ever be "moderators" on a forum like this. It's so simple. If you're too sensitive, there's the ignore feature. Or... just walk away from the site for a while. The ignore feature is really all you need. I never use it, but, I'm not keen on censoring people. I understand why some people do it. The only moderation that could be needed is when these losers get banned and continue to create new handles and come back again. But, even that isn't necessary because they don't need to get kicked-off just for being stupid and persistent. Just... ignore... them! You don't have to "put them on ignore" to do that, either. You just ignore them.It makes sense. I’m not demanding anything. I don’t own the site so I don’t make the rules.
