That is true, they're less restrictive on the posting that goes on over there, but that also leads to flame wars and people getting all pissy and leaving, or just general tention throughout the forum in general. We try to end things before they really get started.
But another HUGE thing on that topic of moderation is not just the level of moderation, but also the type of moderation. If there's an argument that starts around here, we'll close the thread, leaving all posts intact. It's VERY rare that we delete a post (only happened a few times because we felt the thread could keep going without it and have good information). On werkz that thread numark posted SHOULDN'T have been moderated at all, but if action was taken, it should have been closed. Instead they deleted all the pro-ub comments (mine) and left all the pro-werkz comments. Selective moderation like that isn't our style and usually members feel stronger against that than simply locking the thread (maybe not in this situation, but that style of moderation in general).
Do you see what I'm saying Shahab?
