For those that don’t know, Giraffe is mostly comprised of current Dopers, ex-Dopers and banned Dopers. They even have current and ex- mods that post there.
We know that giraffe people can post pretty much anything about Giraffe, even outright lies. Even lies that mods know are lies. You can even post a link to Giraffe telling people they can go there to discuss the latest on the Dope, like Ed’s thread about restarting the Cecil column. That’s all okay.
But if a Giraffe poster tells a lie here, you are not allowed to link to the evidence because of some fear of a board war.
If you are going to have a no Giraffe rule, have it work both ways, no mention of it at all.
Can you give us an example of how this board war would work? What do you expect to happen? It’s not like Giraffe posters would suddenly overrun us, they are already here. You are already modding them on a daily basis, just keep doing so.
