First, my moderation has been focused on removing name calling in order to make this place open and accessible to all users without being intimidated by people with agendas or conflicts of interest.
Second, I’m no longer moderating this thread, because I’ve been participating more actively recently. Hopefully another moderator can step in and make sure this place is open to all ideas and focused on constructive dialogue. Just to reiterate, I actually want to hear arguments that I disagree with and I have absolutely never silenced anyone after disagreeing with them. I’ve only edited posts to remove content breaking the Code of Conduct (leaving opinions in place), and I’ve only silenced users that have repeatedly broken the Code of Conduct (repeated name calling) after ignoring warnings (many times, multiple warnings).
If you want to change my mind, you’re more likely to do so with solid, provable facts rather than personal attacks, heated language or flawed logic.
