and other admins; This is a post from a person that is sick and tired of what appears to be a lax in moderating posts... Every single ship thread devolves into stupidity because people feel the need to post "I dont like this ship" and then continue to spout negative "opinions" and detract from other members experiences.
There is also a MASSIVE amount of members that complain on nearly every ship thread about LGBT being "wrong" or "gross" or "against" their "religion.
These are the kind of posts that, having been a moderator for various things online (forums, bb systems, art gallery sites, etc. etc) for almost 16 years, I would've deleted and issued temporary bans to users that acted like many do in this community, without any respect or thought towards the other members active here.
By allowing excesses of these posts happen, without ramification for the actions, you give members the ability to hate on people via "opinions" (which dont actually mean anything, nor contribute anything to the community/posts as a whole; Aside from pissing people off.)... you are therefore giving them PERMISSION to be jerks to every one in the community.
PLEASE lets see some action in getting shit done. I enjoy this community and the user generated content; But Im getting really sick and tired of the stupid comments that many posts generate.
