People here were complete a-holes to Argus and Rue, it wasn't moderated properly, and now they don't post here.  If you guys want an echo-chamber, congrats.
Argus dished out at least as much as he gave. Nobody feels bad for him, but nice try.

I don't know about Rue. I don't waste my time wading through his overly verbose posts.

No - we need some smart conservatives here.  We have liberals and mushy middles.

There's only like 5 people left who post here regularly.  Smashing success!

Exactly true.  This forum is dying pretty quickly. 

But not because right-wingers were driven away though.   Your characterization of that is complete BS.  The posters who left crying about the moderation have only themselves to blame.

So they can be treated like crap?

A large part of what's happening here is my fault, and stems directly from my breakup and self imposed depression.

Cyber is right, Argus and Rue did dish it out too when attacked.  Half the blame falls on themselves.  On a board with no moderation, you have to ignore insults, not join in.

Fault isnít a good word...   if you donít have the time or inclination, then it is what it is.  I didnít mean to come off as blaming you. 

If I gave a crap that much, then I should put up or shut up...   Iím just lamenting itís unfortunate.

But much more important than some dumb forum is that you take care of yourself.

I wouldn't say it's all your fault.  A forum that starts off with a lot of people but doesn't have the ability to attract new people is bound to have attrition.

Anyways, stay healthy friend.  I'm fine with little/no moderation.

Cyber didnít say that.  And your glowing character reference that they only responded sounds exactly like Waldoís nonsense.  Both of them didnít hesitate to insult without ever being dealt the first blow.

The proof is in the pudding.  Maybe you haven't been on the receiving end to understand, i dunno.

We made our bed, and now we must lay in it.

BS.  The only proof is that they didnít like their insulting posts to be moderated and went away in a huff. 
Good riddance to bad rubbish.

This place is an echo chamber for Liberal views as much as MLW is an echo chamber for Conservative views. Sure there's less obvious trolling here. But this site is far less moderated, CA does a good job over there of keeping threads from getting completely de-railed. Not so much here.

It's not fun to debate issues like Trump here, where most agree he's a bad guy.

And as someone who's opposed to JT, it's no fun to gripe about him there, where everyone else will just say amen.

People who leave a place of debate because they don't like how others debate are part of the problem. If people only discuss topics with people they agree with, they get a skewed sense of reality. IMHO.
