Ths website is pretty lenient, considering it is not free.
Other sites are less tolerant and still have brisk and intelligent discourse. I think it does not advance the site.
This site has paying members, and when one complains about being harassed, other members tell them to stand up for themselves? That's like having a drunk come out of the bar into a restaurant and start picking on you, and the employees let it go on and on. It's in the rules, it isn't a public place (it is paid for, has a membership, it's private) and we don't have to listen to or read this stuff, or have our friends or cohorts put upon.
I say if you want to play rough, go find a free free-for-all, or Second Life, or something and leave off the interpersonal stuff.
And if you get a comeuppance from the blogmeisters, then start rumours about what happened to get people standing up for you, when your name pops out it's not like it is unexpected. I've advocated a rogues' list for years.
