ask yourself are ALL those people really that vapid and inane or is it because the mod team Judge Dreads anything that doesn't conform.
It's neither. If anything, it is the general userbase of the channel - those "vapid and inane" people - that "Judge Dredds" anything that doesn't conform.
It's a bit hard to have meaningful or new inter-faction discussion and debate when there's an incredible tendency from a rather large population of characters to derail any attempts at it with the same old tried-and-boring-as-fuck broken records. Someone asks a question about religion? Pretty much instantly turns into a "fuck the Amarr" shouting match. Sansha or Blooders show up? Ho boy. And don't forget, sticks and stones can break your bones, but they're also a great way to dismiss any uppity Minmatar trying to look even remotely civilized.
End result? "Vapid and inane" is about all that's left that doesn't instantly result in the community
shitcanning your discussion most of the time. The moderators have very little to do with it.
It goes back to my point in the previous post, however. A lot of the people posting in support of or requesting an external IC forum cite the lack
of moderation on CCP's part - even as required by their own rules - as a reason for why they are finding the IGS unpleasant or outright unusable. I'm not really seeing anyone, besides yourself, suggest the exact opposite. So you're going to have to either wait for my bulk shipment of salt to arrive, or do a much better job of making your argument, before I and a lot of other people are going to be inclined to accept it at face value.
This is all besides the fact that the ingame channels aren't really relevant to the issue, or the thread.
