    Nothing, I don't think there is fundamentally a problem. I agree with @Synsensa that things have been basically pleasant and enjoyable. There are issues, there always is. Doesn't mean they need to be corrected imo.

    I suppose I'm biased because I moderated during an era of CFC OT where we had members openly calling for the alt-right to gain power and start killing. The people going "nah" to that got banned more than the people advocating such views. I can't say more due to PDMA. But I really do think the state of OT is laughably better since 2017. This story of OT disintegrating in 2018 and 2019 seems amiss to me.

    Public Discussion of Moderator Actions. So, talking about specific infractions, or lack thereof. Responding to mod text. Although Herrs Arakhor and CitrusDealer are surprisingly chill with the latter lately. :p

    I guess I just don't buy the idea that a person can spout dogwhistling statistics in an attempt to show minorities as being inherently criminal or parasitical without being a racist.

    What I suggest is a complex method involving all Western scientifical methods, also adding breathing exercises, and a lot of stuff. So far I have offered this method to one person and she declined. Well, in person it could be different.

    This is my secret plot to get them to crack down on us.

    Then... how do you know it works if the ONE person you offered it to rejected it?

    My offer of $200/mo for 12 months in exchange for reproducible proof is still open.

    I mentally replace it with "Public Display of Moderate Affection" and the thread immediately becomes more funny.

    Here is one view from Peggy Noonan, moderate Republican columnist who is not a Trump fan.
    I think her view shines a light on some of what has been talked about in this thread. Those who would rather throw "bombs" than discuss. She is not entirely wrong.

    Well, the thing is to build up what we already know and add what works. Same with cancer - full cure is a myth (you need to work on yourself so your body understands that allowing cancer in it is a thing of past), but prolonging a life span is very realistic.

    Everything takes hard work.

    $300 USD a month for 12 months, and I get 0.5% of profits from your patent royalties when you sell your cures for cerebral palsy and cancer. This is a good deal.

    Hmmm...if the "cure" stops the cancer from growing, is that enough? ;)

    I'd like to think the above sentiment is due to English not being your firs language, but somehow I don't think that is what is going on here.

    I was thinking that but I was waiting for someone else to post that.

    "Digital lynching"... seems disrespectful to the victims of actual lynchings, doesn't it? I won't post pictures of lynchings because...
