Letís call it covered up to the 6th degree of consanguinity. Acceptable?
Hoisted on my own petard.

I believe that the quality of discourse would improve dramatically if these two rules were strictly enforced.
The problem with both those issues is you would need to crack down even more on the amount of bad faith posting and trolling that goes on.

I donít think the final result of extreme moderation is the default standard makes for a better discussion area.

I cross the line at times, but I also read a lot of posts, by the letter of the law I should be reporting. I donít though, for many reasons. One is it is not fair to the moderators. The type of person who would be up for strictly moderating a forum like politics would be a person who should never be in charge of moderating anything.

So instead you build a ball park and play by general guidelines.

Given the nature of American politics rule number 4 doesnít even make sense and has been an issue actually discussed at great length there. A substantial portion of regular posters are not necessary in favor of continuing the idea of trying to change peopleís minds through intellectual discourse.

This all comes back around to people posting in bad faith and trolling. Rule number 1 ONLY works if everyone is participating earnestly.

Oh, Iím enforcing it. I have a log book logging violations of those rules as follows:

1. Every time somebody violates one of those rules they get a demerit;
2. 50 demerits = 1 citation
3. 50 citations = 1 violation
4. 25 violations = a verbal warning;
5. 10 verbal warnings = a written warning;
6. 5 Written Warnings = a disciplinary review;
7. 8 disciplinary reviews = a full deflagulation

Re: Politics moderation

The only rule that should be enforced is leftist mob rule.

In other words nothing should change.

He would say because he likes leather jackets and wants to put a bunch of mirrors on his Vespa. Then he would ask for a big mac.

Re: Politics moderation

Not sure who locked all these Politics threads, but I promise an FBI-level investigation to get to the truth. In the meantime, I will enjoy discussing politics here with the 2p2 elites without any interference from the hoi polloi.

Re: Politics moderation

I'm just thankful that before the power-hungry mod or admin locked these threads, we were able to see the hot take that you might have been trolling in the politics moderation thread you created - something I never would have considered, as your post seemed very serious and sincere. Please say it isn't so!
