I am sorry that you are so unhappy about this situation. There is a moderator discussion with vinata about what will happen next and I believe he has finally begun to understand that the situation is not as simple as he may have imagined it. If you are a fan of "Yes, minister", you might have called it a "courageous" undertaking. I am currently in the invidious position of being one of two admins
with very differing ideas of how the site should run, and thus we are both unable to fully drive one vision or the other.
Vinata wishes for a sober forum of discussion and factual debate, while I prefer the idea of a local bar or comfortable club. one where you might rest after a tiring day, ready to relax with a snifter of sherry and a newspaper.
This perhaps defines how we differently solve problems. Vinata might set up a list of clear rules which are enforced, whereas I prefer to shape and cajole, saving forcible ejection for the loudest, most obnoxious drunks.
And so it is, that, perhaps entirely by accident, two of the best contributors to our site, Yourself and Grath, find yourselves unhappy with this new imposition and most likely to suffer from it. I don't like this and I would prefer both of you to stay. None of us are classic monsters and it is unlikely that we support or hold extreme views, we just prefer to talk in the comfortable manner of friends, without artificial restraint.
I feel that this situation will be resolved soon.
Friday July the 27th.
