Re: Politics and Moderation
I appreciate the light touch moderators use here on SN (moderation in moderation). It's easy to avoid "fight club" threads (politics, guns, anchors, etc.), and objectionable people can always be put on your ignore list. That said, when people cross the line into outright personal attacks, or when they start spouting truly extreme positions, then mods do need to step in.
I take part in CF as well, and while I appreciate that forum, I think their approach is a bit too heavy-handed at times. I think SN has, in general, found a better balance -- so thanks.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
