Re: Politics and Moderation

Speculation on my part, but I suspect that SailNet administration (not the moderators) provide OT/Pol/Rel areas because that increases traffic and user accounts, which in turn helps them sell ads. I offer that if OT/Pol/Rel is deleted SailNet can make the case to advertisers that the audience is more likely to include those that will click through and buy products.

Instead, OT/Pol/Rel generates a hostile environment that drives away people that will buy and encourages people that don't.
