There is no need to insult each other, anyone can disagree and there is lots of room here for different opinions. It is possible to argue in a polite manner without getting personal or starting a war.

We are friends, we are a family, we are stronger and better when we help each other.

I didn't mean you, but I think that's how many people will feel they have to behave here. Heavy moderation is always the beginning of the end for a forum.

Agreed..  Moderation may be needed on occasion but heay moderation becomes censorship. Maybe it did get a bit overboard but if my kids were brought into the conversation I would have reacted much more harshly..  Its a parents natural response to squash anything that hurts, insults or even thinks about bothering their children. Like when My head was posted all over the web after Adam sent the link to those gamers. I had no problem with them insulting me but when they started in on my kids I blasted each and everyone that I found. And I wouldnt change my response for the world.
dance sir... that is all, just dance.....

Of all the forums I have joined (except specialist academic forums with limited users) this one has the least moderator intervention - probably because the vast majority of users stick within the forum rules most of the time

Well... you can say as well, for instance, that it takes two countries to make a war. Nazis and austrians, Nazis and czechs, Nazis and polish, Nazis and french, Nazis and english, Nazis and greeks, Nazis and serbian, Nazis and americans, Nazis and russians  ... see the point?
When you have a arguement with an idiot, the most tangible proof that he's an idiot is his unability to leave peacefully a discussion that can obviously bring nothing.

Every Forum develops it's own voice. I know some where you are not allowed to argue and you have to stick to the topic.

There is another forum where almost anything goes and you can make racial comments or sexual orientation comments and no one cares and no one gets into serious fights there. People goof around and call each other shit heads and it's fun.

I know one that used to be a lot of fun and then they started suspending and banning people and it got really boring and instead of a post every minute they have a post or less an hour.

So if you want a forum where no one disagrees because it can lead to an argument that is your prerogative.

People think there is free speech on the internet, but there really isn't unless you start your own site. Freedom of speech only protects you in the real world from the Government putting you in jail for what you say.

PS When I first read this topic I thought about hanging people off of hooks.

Mods and suspensions have more than one meaning at this forum.
