    Anyway - I really am not losing any sleep about it, and I don't contribute as much as I used to anyway -- I just think it's silly that we still ban people who have literally been here for a decade.
    It's a tough balance, because you'd probably also lose members who dislike the more unmoderated approach. I'm not convinced any version of more or less moderation would have much if any impact on member attrition.

    I'm convinced that moderators do more harm than good to MY message board experience... Which doesn't necessarily mean you whiners aren't entitled to your opinions as well.

    Strange how the only whining I see is someone complaining about whiners.

    So basically you're ok with attrition as long as it's the people you disagree with leaving!

    I think I'm a refugee from that other site and I entirely concur. I've only joined P&R once and that was to watch the heads exploding after the 2016 election but I left again after a week. I decided if it wasn't about football in some way or other, it was best left alone.

    It also helps to not read comments from certain posters I've personally blacklisted.
    I miss the old Mile High Stadium.

    It is interesting that out of 13 people i have on ignore only 2 are actively on this site.

    I wonder how many people have me on ignore. There's one I know for sure who does, and at least one who did recently.

    I simply don't get the concept of ignore. You have to be a mental midget to be so affected (or is it effected, always get those confused) by a message board that you put someone on ignore. I guess it takes all kinds.
