If you’d like things to be lively, I suggest you have a look at the forum. Particularly the thread relating to UD.

Then do this: compared the behavior on that thread to the behavior here, by admins and posters alike. Also, notice if Liddle is outraged – outraged! – at what’s going on in that thread. Or if she behaves like a good little girl who keeps her mouth shut and tolerates, or even encourages, what goes on there.

good little girl? Null, why don't you come over here where all the bad and good little girls and boys can talk, without Barry deciding who gets to speak?

Oh, that's right......

I mean, practically every one of you has admitted to following this thread over the years.

But no, you'd rather sit over then in the soon to be echo chamber, listening to Joe and KF and BA77 saying the same things, over and over and over.

Just the way you like it. Unchallenging (Telic Thoughts anyone?) and unchanging.

If you had any guys at all Null you'd tell Joe exactly what he's making UD and ID look like. But you can't make waves in the big tent can ya?

Well, nullasalus, if you are reading this:

I actually don't mind insults much, personally. After all, I post on Talk Rational, indeed was an admin there.

But I do like rules to be even-handed, which was why I got cross about DrREC being banned, when Joe had been calling someone or other a wanker and a moron only the day before.

And I do like conversations to proceed on substance, and insults do tend to get in the way.  But far more obstructive than rude words, IMO, is failure to take other people seriously. That's why the rather vague rule at my own site is: Assume other posters are posting in good faith.  But I won't ban anyone except spammers, and I just move violating posts to a (locked) forum, and they remain visible.  It's not a sanction, it's just a sorting operation.

So you'd very welcome if you'd like to drop by.  And any other UD lurkers :)
