Back to topic. I can readily see why the PhiloForum folks have need of moderation. I hope they get what they need.
Zetherin seems to be the most cool headed and straight up poster that I have seen from that group. I am sure that there are many more.
I've seen several, even many. Jgweed, for example, and Gosh is Dead, Zeth, Wayne, all of them and more that I am not naming, in my experience so far. Mmm, what happened to Steve?
Not that I am ms. perfect.
But, I think Pf loonies could square dance with earlier a2k loonies (who being whom, another whole game).
On a2k, you get to recognize people. Some do short jibes into subjects and rarely carry that further. Some crave a rondelay of pages of tangent with intent to distract.
Some like digressions as occasionally more interesting than the original question and don't mean for the original question to be occluded. Some promote one point of view wherever possible at all.
Some many are learning to make arguments "out loud", however old we are.
Me, I wasn't allowed to sass in my family. It's been something of a haul over the years to gather my wits and talk back. Sometimes I over-talk back.
I'm fine with both modes existing.
Be well, y'all.
