Sometimes the moderation is just a little silly. This GoldenSound MQA thread - 300 posts, various discussions going on, and the mods stepped in because there were a few posts that, oh, the horror, were a little humorous.
Wouldn’t it be better if the humor could stay and lighten the mood? In regards to the thread on there being a lot of umbrage in the forum, one way to defuse tension is with humor.
The no-fun-league rules here are a bit over the top. I agree that some threads have so much value they should be kept on a single topic. But MQA threads? After 300 posts?
You want some community spirit? Then let the community build it!
EDIT: the mods are some of the best posters here. And they do all this for free, I think. So no disrespect to the mods is intended. But if there is going to be a lot of censorship on this forum, you’re going to push away a lot of folks who could set the tone and create the spirit that has been lacking here.
