We don't need any moderation at all in my opinion, unless direct personal threats or mindless spam.

If amiga.org choose to accept this simple path you are welcome to use this logo.



Freedom of speech is a basic right that should be honored and cherished, not sadly crippled by moderators. From experience people tend to behave well when allowed to type pretty much anything they want, it works because people are generally good once given a chance to prove it.

YES! All this profanity sucks :( Most people don't like to read that trash talking rubbish, and people who do should find a nice trash talking forum.

Freedom of speech doesn't have to apply to privately owned forums. Same goes for homes: Sure, you have freedom of speech, but don't expect me to allow you to say everything you want in my home.

This is NOT the streets.

This is a public website where you don't need to register to read posts, even more public than the streets in a way.

I think people tend to become rascals (or juvenile) when you police/moderate them, on the other hand, if they are responsible for what they post without getting banned or have their posts edited they are on their own, and there's no moderator around to save them when arguments don't hold water.

I'd point you to moobunny to evaluate that theory ;)

Just checked it, and that's certainly not what Amiga.org needs.

Since a time ago I'm more time in EAB. Yesterday I was asking here what was happening. Today I did in EAB. The thread was closed as two others about Cusa and A-Org. Perhaps it's too much, but perhaps it's necessary to have some order.
A1200, Lateral 32GB CF, internal Dvd, ACA 1230/56 with an MKII Fast ATA at 9,5Mb/s, another A1200 BPPC project in progress (more or less), and posting from my own/better C64x in my Tv using Hdmi.

I wouldn't worry Thorham all this CUSA stuff will end soon enough and the site will get back to being a place for great advice and fun once again... :)

I can point you to my site, where 271340 registered users get along just fine (most of the time).

Hehe. Seriously though, I don't see how it can end without moderation? If people can have it out without interference, the storms settle pretty quick.

Why would it do that?
Something tells me this has just gotten started and is only going to get worse once C=USA releases an Amiga.

This might well be the only thing you and I will agree on now.
You will never have a chance to "MODERATE" me again. Since it seems that any thing we say will be considered a "personal attack", and nobody is talking Amiga anymore - I guess I'm gone.
You might have very empty room to MODERATE soon.

No worries, I no longer am a moderator. Chances are Amiga.org will slip closer to Moobunny by the day.
Someone has to state the obvious and that someone is me!
