I'd just like to add I think the forum has already proven a success in that I'd read a lot of good, thought provoking stuff.

That there's still hostility and bad faith posting is hardly to be regarded as failure. That'd be freaking miraculous.

Wheat with the chaff and all that.

Sounds like a wonderfully moderated forum.

I was going to disagree with you. Then I saw the circumstances of the first locked thread.

It wasn't the one advocating withholding aid to political adherents featuring actual wishing of harm to Republicans.

It was the one taking a hardline stance on gender identity.

On moon miranda.

If one has a problem with the postings of others on a different forum (that was made specifically to keep drama off this one), please confine it to that forum, thanks.

The correct pronunciation is Imperial Guard and Stormtroopers, "Astra Militarum" and "Tempestus Scions" are something you'll find at Hogwarts.

Just for the record, in case anyone else sees this post, that poster is no relation to me, despite the similarity in usernames.

"You listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchetman in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I'll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method... is love. I love you Sheriff Truman." - Twin Peaks

I’m still on the fence about this. I’d like to join, but I know I’d probably come to regret it.

With the right attitude I think it's worth a shot. Some bizarre posts have made me laugh, like the one about native americans.

Hey folks, I'll be making a "State of the ETC" thread in the debate section this weekend, and looking for feedback over there. I think a month in, we have encountered some new challenges now that the "honeymoon" period is over. I am very open to ideas. BlackoCatto and Scrabb, concerns like yours would be very helpful (you can also always PM me if you don't want to join up!).

I'm going to ask if the mods can lock this thread, and look for that new thread on the ETC to discuss this later this weekend.
