Re: Polarizing discussions
I have been a member of several forums and I have to say that this one is pretty well behaved. I have seen much more dramatic flame wars and quite frankly, that is why I have quit participating in those clubs. When I see those threads, I generally read a few posts and move on. I don't feel the need to participate, but I don't think they are completely destructive.
From my POV, I think the Mods have done a good job of locking threads when they head down the rabbit hole. I have not noticed threads being deleted outright personally, but I would agree that is bad form even though it is necessary sometimes.
Anyway, just wanted to put that out there. I noticed from the beginning that everybody seemed to be pretty helpful and level-headed. Too much drama puts a sour taste in everybody's mouth, but I feel like it is minimal on this forum. That is entirely because of the members and the mods.
