Aight, so I’m going to go out on a bit of a limb here. Let me start with the disclaimer that I love our benenvolent moderators and think they do a bang up job of keeping the forums an enjoyable place to come back to.
That being said… is it just me, or are we as a community just a tad too sensitive? I feel that there is a line between wanting to maintain a level of civility and completely denying anyone the right to get emotionally expressive. I can’t really speak for myself (as I’m such a fantastically kind and civil gentleman ) but it seems like whenever I come across even a wiff of enmity on a thread a mod will swoop in and go “keep it civil!”
Sure, I don’t think the forums should be allowed to become a cesspool of “your mom sucks my dick you little s***”, but flags shouldn’t be dropping left and the second someone calls someone else a jerk. While I personally love every one of my fellow forum members, liking everyone shouldn’t be a requirement of participation.
Just my two cents (again, not even sure why I care, as I am a pillar of civility and warmth. Guess it’s just the freedom loving side of me showing )
