Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
I've received a number of complaints about this thread. People want us to monitor it and remove the nastiness. I have to say this is a distasteful thread. When threads have a tone like this one has, I try to stay away from them. But if the thread has 449 posts, then somebody must enjoy talking like this. I guess I'd suggest that if people don't like threads like this, they might be advised to do like I do and stay away.
I can tell at a glance that a thread like this is bound to be a nasty one. Frankly, it's too damn much work to make it otherwise. If adults can't behave in a civil manner on their own, I don't think there's much I can do to force them to behave.
Can anyone convince me there's a better alternative?

Oh, and I don't believe for a second that happy horseshit about "I'm a Guest to protect myself because people are just too nasty around here." In most cases, posting as a perennial Guest is a way of not taking responsibility for what you have to say.
