Election Day Open Thread
A new open thread, all wrapped up in shiny paper, just for you.
A general question: What is your opinion on the need for more active moderation here? By that, I mean someone jumping into threads and providing admonishment for posters who stray into the personal attack territory, somewhat along the lines of what happens at the Forum.
My own two cents is that generally we're all tough enough to fight our own battles and therefore only the most egregious examples deserve active moderation. When it's been necessary here, I have simply edited the posts to remove the offending words, rather than include the, er, finger-waving lecture, but I'd conform to whatever guidelines are decided upon. Your thoughts?
Also, can we agree to retire the word "spew"? ;-)
