24. right, butI find it strange that the solution is for members to stay out of open forums by trashing

them.

When simple steps, like maybe giving MIRT more power to ban posters who make it just past the 100 mark and start acting like RW freepers.

or

Simply not allowing newer posters to jury posts until they have proven to be a good part of the community. Proof may be of 6 months of good posting history where more than one or zero posts are made. A simple 300 post threshold may help.

We get a lot of returnees, and they don't seem to be detected until it's too late for MIRT to do something and then admin has to get involved, and obviously they don't want to have to baby sit this site, to make it work a bit better.

But those are just a few suggestions, versus telling people who are upset with something righteously to just ignore it or trash it. Many people have put in a lot of time into this website to make it what it is/was. A living for them. A bit of help in keeping the place cleaned up might help. Re-visit their absolute faith in this jury system, that has shown to anyone that has actually watched, is not working perfectly. Maybe find some creative ways to make it work for people who aren't the majority but are getting harangued and pushed out by them.

This majority rules system in a word is what is making this place become more untenable for a lot of people.

I post all of this with good intentions. It will probably fall on deaf ears... but still I will try...
