    About moderation

    One thing i really like about this forum is how free it is, moderators and administrators are not some holier then thou thought police but active members who just keep order on the side. However i noticed in many other forums and boards i participate in that there are increasing levels of thought policing, there is certain forum culture that developed and some parts of it are rather restrictive. For example many forums frown or outright delete anything seen as derailment, or not sticking to the topic, this sort of behavior IMO stifles the natural flow of conversation and shoehorns it into very limited range. Maybe the problem is that many people who start such forums are just normal people without training in mediation, meaning they either copy paste the usual set of rules or make rules on the go, and then stick to them as if they were holy bible, and that can lead to rules being enforced for the sake of rules themselves, what is your experience with it.

    P.S. Just to make clear once again, this is in no way aimed at Mods on this particular forum, as i already stated, i just want to discuss this thing i see so often somewhere where i know i won´t have a butthurt mod swooping in and locking it down just because they are power tripping, i actually think mods and admins on this forum are some of the coolest and most laid back i have ever seen.

    I easily agree and I would add the mods from the main site as well. I've gotten to know several of them and I have found them to be very interesting people with diverse opinions and backgrounds, who all do an excellent job of keeping the peace.

    It was my goal from the beginning to have the site and it's members moderate themselves more than having my team constantly get involved. It seems to work well... so.

    What amazes me is that the minority/oppressed/victimised/discriminated against people who benefited from free speech to gain their rights are the ones who now want to shut it down because it's not all about them.

    Sadly the ones who benefit from a thing, don't understand it like those who fought for a thing because they didn't have it.
