Re: [DMCForum] Posting FROM Marc Levy about Moderation



I, for one, don't think we should put an end to this discussion, or any 
discussion for that matter.  That's the whole point.

This forum, by design, was unmoderated.  Moderation is what has caused 
it to swing out of control here.  Sure, Marc is a little crazy, but 
that's fine.  That was what we all loved about this group: everyone 
showed varying degrees of insanity, and it was okay.

Now what's happened?

You condemn Marc for attacking someone, and then you return the favor? 
Sure, he deserved it, but that doesn't make it right, or legal by the 
apparent new rule of this forum.

For the most part, I don't agree with Marc's actions, but I do agree 
with his intentions.  Moderation is inherently flawed, problematic, and 
unnecessary in this forum.

In regards to the famous politics/religion polls, I think the best 
people to answer the question about the "I Don't Care" votes are the 6 
and 7 people respectively who voted for it.  If those people didn't want 
to be counted either way on the issue, why did they vote?  Were they 
just bored?  Why was the option even offered?  Couldn't it be assumed 
that the ~90something% of members that didn't vote were the true "Don't 
Care"s?

Private messages from Marc don't change my position.  I'm not defending 
Marc, I'm defending what he's defending.

Regards,
Jon Heese
