No… actually… that is where things blew up. We USED to have a section called "Post your political or adult twabbles here" to go along with the current "General Content" thread.

Imagine that there the "Lurkers" are a bunch of Catholics who are sensitive and feel that a leg is being pulled at their expense.
Okay...wait a minute... I seem to be in danger of hijacking my own comment. Wouldn't the point be that if lurkers are hanging back from a discussion, then "adding branches to the tree" gives them additional places to land?

Moderating takes a large emotional toll, especially in a "general public" arena like this one. Burnout is high, which you can see in the history of this forum's mods and their activity rates, but holds true in every site I've knowledge of.
