I have no dog in this fight. I haven’t had any threads closed on me or been warned etc (at least not in living memory). I have in the past said (and still think) that the SDMB’s moderation is one of its positives.
Lately there has been discussion about the decline of the boards and what it might take to improve things.
To be interesting, cheese has to walk a line between stinky and dull. Of course, dull cheese is a bestseller but I don’t think the SDMB has the market clout to compete in that mass market.
I’m toying with the view that the modding here might need to let things get a little more stinky.
