First off, thanks to KnightWriter for re-opening this thread. I am well aware of the fact that this is a privately owned site and that the mods are free to make any rules. However, if the mods want people to get involved and feel like they are valued, then users need to know that their opinion matters. Some of the moderators do not seem to understand some of the concerns expressed here. If you do not agree that this is a serious matter, fine. But dismissing arguments by calling them ?drama? is rude and un-necessary. This forum is for people to express views and opinions, please allow us to use it for that purpose If the purpose of the new restriction is to prevent conflict, there are numerous other topics that would fall under this category, ex: Religion, Cannon Wars, and others I can?t think of at the moment (but I'll work on it). From my perspective, this is a decision made for reasons that have not been fully explained (it there was an incident, what was it?, and does one incident merit this type of reaction), and does not seem to really fit the perceived potential harm. Will this stop me from posting here? No. But my respect and general belief that that mods generally do a good job has gone down a notch. Bad form. Dan and MrEmh, please take all personal issues to PM.
