Open Thread: 1/22
This is an open thread, but I want to explain something.
The trolls have been out in force the past few days and I have been forced to ban several people from the message boards. I want to make clear that the integrity of these message boards is paramount to me. This is a site by a liberal, for liberals, to discuss issues.
I have always welcomed rational, respectful conservatives to the boards, but I have no patience for dittoheads and their ilk. If people on the left get irrational or even lose their temper, I happily look away. If conservatives do, I ban them -- they can take their act to the Free Republic.
I think the quality of the boards speaks for itself. They are the best part of this site. But they are not a bastion of great debate by accident. It takes vigilance, and I will continue to exercise it. I don't apologize for banning anyone.Posted January 22, 2003 12:37 AM | Comments (118)
