Hi Chris,

 

I applaud this (long overdue) effort to get rid of some of the incivility on AS.  I'm also a subjectivist with little need to read the 100th iteration of the same objectivist statement.

 

But I'm a bit concerned this is the wrong solution.  Two thoughts:

 

First, too much of the internet allows people to easily filter out those with whom we disagree.  In politics, this manifests itself as too many Democrats watching only MSNBC, and too many Republicans watching only Fox.  Collectively, we lose a common set of facts and ideas.  So I hope that does not happen here.

 

Second, you seem to suggest a much more obvious solution in your post when you refer to the usual suspects causing you to steer clear of certain threads.  I have the same problem.  The real answer is to get rid of the usual suspects so that the rest of us can enjoy your (our?) awesome website in aesthetic, intellectual, collegial peace.

 

Thanks again for all your great work

My guess is that they depart voluntarily when they realize that nobody is paying attention any more. The time to cull them out easily has long since past. It would have easier earlier on. And if you think this is bad now, (MSNBC vs Fox type behavior) just wait until this summer.

Limiting individual posts to three a day could help. Those three post would have to be good ones, so quality of content might improve. Repetitiveness would lessen because posting for sport would stop. Both are pretty rampant on the site.

of course you have censored things

 

what is wrong with you?

 

Because your thread designed to cause problems was removed, you're upset. I get it. I don't call that censorship. You yelled fire in a crowded theater.

if you didn't understand the post you could have asked questions

 

if you dislike PART of the Op in that thread you could have asked me to modify it

 

you did neither

 

but that isn't the point...

 

you are censoring technical discussion with your new Stylist rules

Real censorship is you guys continuing to drive people away until there's nobody left. Nobody talking about HiFi because of your crusade.

Do we really need to get into the discussion about what is or isn't censorship? I split topics so people can enjoy themselves and you're claiming censorship. 

 

I love this example in response to those that cry censorship. It is okay to yell fire in a theater but it's not okay to lie about it. If no real fire exists arguing about this or that might sometimes be mistaken as the metaphorical fire itself.

Splitting posts made on a thread so that they no longer exist on that thread is clearly censorship

 

I hope you realize that

No. 
 

If people are enjoying themselves you don’t need to barge in and tell them they are delusional. If this happens, I move the post so you can explain why and we don’t have a fight.

And when the reverse happens? Oh, don't bother answering. I know you'll continue to let that slide like you always have.

Don’t pretend to know what goes on behind the scenes.

Did you misdirect that reply? I was not the one alleging that people are conspiring via PMs on another forum.

I disagree. Moving a post to what is deemed to be a more appropriate category is an organizational act, not suppression (censorship).

Exactly.  And if you suggest otherwise, your post will be deleted.

Hi JD, the same way it always has. Perhaps I don't follow your question?


Hi Chris, I will send you a PM in the near future about what I meant on this. You have your hands full now.

Meanwhile, keep up the good work on a great forum 
 

Thanks,

 

JD
