When I post over at MR, I write as if I'm addressing my lawyer or congressman. There are people who go out of their way to agitate, either by design or innate personality, but the mods will always take their side, so I keep my mouth shut. I've never gotten a warning or suspension, but I feel like a damn robot when posting. "Stay on target...stay on target." I don't have to do that here.You saw no such thing, people have left on their own accord and that was their choice. I can count on one hand how many people have been actually banned from this site in its entire existence.
I can only speak for myself, I don't participate in the news and politics section, mainly because I don't find it personally fruitful. Others enjoy the rough 'n tumble, which is fine, it's just not for me. I think that's where a lot of the heat builds up, so there's nothing wrong with a breather, from time to time. I did botch a thread a while back about the Mac Pro, addressed it with Eric, and he was exceedingly cordial about it. In both my private and public conversations with our host, I've found him to be a reasonable, good chap.right.....when I came here, I noted a lot of comments about moderation at other places......but in a relatively short time I've seen posters banned here for "unacceptable comments".....so ok that's the way it goes
