Allow me to amend what I said before: having looked through a certain moderator's post history, I actually witnessed some cases of definitely unfair and unwarned ban. Following the overall same trend Western societies seem to be following, it appears the thought police is becoming harsher here too, grounded in what is starting to resemble an ideology. I should have abstained from taking a look at the recent
Transgender tag discussion.
When, for all uneducated they might be, politely-worded opinions that differ from your views are ipso facto considered as unorthodox and should therefore be excluded on sight is a sign that intolerance and narrow-mindedness are not so faraway anymore.
Seeing (parts of) this community slowly becoming, over the years, more and more extreme is saddening, especially when, a few years ago, one could read such wise words; which, I believe, still are to this day, one of the most thoughtful and insightful comment this forum has ever borne. Though I have an idea and understand why moderation is siding with a certain view and holding a certain stance - there may be some underlying personal reasons - by no means does it justify arbitrarily banning.
Another reason to stick to my original advice: consensual opinions, as narrow as possible debates and cheering, light-minded comments!
