Return to a more strict TOS enforcement?

Would you like to see the TOS more strictly enforced as in the past?

Yup, especially on moderators that are out of control... :D

In person.

But I would like to see the insults and personal attacks come to an end.

If these means banning anyone who doesn't support C=USA then no, we don't.

I think when we have certain members demanding the banning of someone and then threads appear to see if the site can do it without upsetting the regulars then we have an issue.

It is nice to see how C=USA has managed to rip this site in wto with the help of a few drones.

At least AW.net is keeping their threads to a minimum.

Still, I suppose C=USA and their minions would love to drive away the non-supporters...

Let me put this another way, if Franko goes then I go.

I dunno, would enforcing the TOS really help? Are there rules that would keep people from acting as unpaid shills for one company or another without completely inhibiting discussion of Amiga-related issues? That would keep CUSA zealots from spawning new praise threads every time Barry Altman so much as farts, and counter-zealots from making endless polls about how all CUSA discussion needs to be banned completely?

That's partially because the TOS allows AW to close threads with duplicative subject matter. It's applied to the "recent" topic list.
You could call it a compromise solution, where no one gets exactly what they want, but it works pretty well.

I don't, in anyway, see this as a stance against anti C-USA posts.
But the personal attacks and baseless slander?
Yeah, that's gotta go.

Edit - Added C=USA comment to my signature to see if Franko really want to address every comment.
