    You guys need another mod in there

    or the mods who are in there to actually do their jobs

    Mayberry is supposed to be "light-hearted"

    Do you have any specific examples?

    You can always report posts if you find them questionable.

    The Mayberry has had slightly relaxed rules as a Gen disc subforum so simply being called out on something or getting pushback is okay. If the posting you are referring to is flaming or vulgar (OT style posting) then you should report them.

    Amigo,
    I've been calling this out for a while now.
    Thread titles I see and can't believe aren't in the WR, and usually the ensuing discussions are right on the line. You can of course leave it up to judgment calls, but most if not all of these threads are simply not in the spirit of the form in which they're posted.

    Still more lighthearted than when everyone was talking about their depression, alcoholism, and homelessness

    So the complaints are that the threads are too political? Because maybe I was under the assumption that the complaint was that posters were posting too hostile.. like war room argumentative.

    Fair enough if this was what ts was referring to. At the end of the day, if they are too political they should be in the war room. But sometimes the topic isn't necessarily political, but ends up that way.

    Yah.
    If I were a mod trying to look at the discussion objectively, it might not seem actionable, and the desire to impose order, and not wanting to stifle free debate, come into conflict.
    Being a mod is riding a line and making the calls.

    Although I find WR type threads in the Berry irritating, I will always (but sometimes begrudgingly) side with the decision that favors open discussion.
    Thanks for doing what you do, TeTe and team.

    I would be fine with a large reduction in the,"Hey everyone, look at what this shitty person did today! Doesn't it make you sooooo mad?!" type posts as well.
