Topic: Request for active moderation
I am a person who generally believes in letting all people express their views in discussion groups for the purpose of sharing ideas and helping each other find Truth. A few months ago on this forum, there was an instance where I specifically requested the moderator to change his mind about a particular decision to delete comments from a thread in the interest of allowing others to benefit from some negative material.
I believe, instead, that the line should only be drawn when certain individuals or groups of people have been established to be intentionally trying to generate discord or discontent among the earnest members of the group who are in good faith trying to have intelligent discussions. Unfortuately, I feel this is presently the case.
Virtually all of the peaceful, regular contributing members to NR who have been here for the last few months have, in the past few days, posted complaints in one thread or another. These complaints center around the actions of certain people who have recently shown up and in various ways are seriously diluting the quality of information on this forum. I am concerned that if this continues, new truthseekers who come across Noble Realms may take one look at this forum and decide "this isn't for me," or worse, we may begin losing existing good members who get frustrated with the nonsense.
I therefore suggest that action should be taken, and my personal feeling is that in this particular case it should deal with the reviewing the suitability for NR membership of a few specific individuals.
I ask that others who have been around for awhile to post their own thoughts here as well.
