    I'm wondering what's with all the super sensitive white people these days. Who really gives a shit about people making negative or even racist comments about whites? It makes those people seem extraordinarily insecure at best.

    The last time I said this someone unfriended me, wrote something like "shame on you," and then left the forum for like six months...

    but I'll say it again because it's true and relevant. Most people are not immune to trolling. Doesn't mean they'll panic and cry, but it will bore them after a while and they'll see little sense in continuing to contribute. If you aim for having a completely wild space, it will naturally devolve into its own form of "safe space," even without formal regulation. Because trolls will make it so unpleasant for those they troll that many will start to find the place annoying, boring, and frustrating. So they'll leave.

    The only way to maintain a community with a truly diverse range of voices is to insist on some degree of moderation. Too much, and you end up with a safe space for snowflakes. Too little and you end up with a safe space for fireballs. Both ways you end up with a depressing noise-signal ratio.


    At least that's my theory. But the forum seems to have been improving over the last few months, with the exception of days like yesterday, so maybe I'll be proven wrong.

    Edit: and @Lurker I'm sorry if you're really leaving but totally understand, I might do the same if the place devolves again.

    Edit 2: already clarified with her but in case anyone else thought the same thing, my passive aggression post wasn't about jigglypuff. Like Lurker I'm running out of bush to beat around so I'll stop there

    @Sappho

    I'll bare that in mind. I've got to chase up the midwives today, still not got an appointment from them and apparently all my bloods should have been checked by now.

    That cat is definitely going to be adopted by someone who is obese and keeps the cat obese too to feel better about themself.

    I remember that thread, "Tell a member what you really think of them/Sort of", I actually really liked it, but all the wrong people would get offended.
