The litmus test of any open-minded civil society or forum must be; accommodating all voices and the intrinsic nuances of perspective that generated them. An exclusivity prone, bigoted and cowardly group of moderators and admins like that of other 'opinion aggregators' , defeats the very purpose that it's advertised for.
And the only thing that it's got going for it is the content, written by professionals to free radicals to philosophers and concerned citizens and inquisitive readers with stories of their own.
I know it's going to be hard, putting up with few writers and voices for multiple topics , but we've got to try and add as many topics as we can here. And approach writers at other forums and places to contribute to Boardest, with a view to add more voices and colours of expression. I'm sure, if we can up the quality of content, not just in terms of what's allowed and in what way, but also about various subjective technicalities of topics, like specific knowledge hoarded by elitists and the " You don't need to know ." Topics like from broken relationships and acting and publishing secrets and experiences to special forces jargon and political opinions of less popular voices and at least an occasional 'doomsayer'.
One important appeal ( and suggestion) to the admins and mods; it might mean lesser threats by big fish and media if you stick to the liberal script, but even as entrepreneurs, you must know that the tides are changing. The idea of controlled opinions is giving ways to directed perspectives. And dislike it as they might, institutions that had been slowly building around the globalist progressive dogma are being exposed and replied to, authoritatively and in time socially. In this dynamic, I appeal to you that you not attempt to muffle the occasional uncultured pun, the frustrated vernacular colloquialism, the unbridled 'french' in some ( only some ) responses and opinions, at least where the rest of the dialogue makes sense and has people responding positively to it. The social , technical and business gains from that may begin slow, but shall be grand, in the long run I'm sure. As were the windfalls to the leftist and pseudo-centrist media were to an unforgiving and finicky overbearing administration that just ...left.
I hope we can establish a new trend here, and that Boardest can break the mold of preemptive , recidivist literature supporting forums , with perpetually PMS-ing, moderators and capricious admins.
If you can read that last statement and not narrow your eyes , thinking bolts of hatred for the writer, but take the Gandhian , higher road of overlooking it as you do everyday in personal discussions and between friends, and since the statement hasn't caused you real , physical suffering ;
then at least between us, it's a start.
