I hope they can stem the tide of ridiculous, insulting statements made on some boards. I appreciate the striving for quality on Fool boards.

I think you are all missing the point.

Lies and slander are good to stop.

It is NOT good to try to stop ridiculous insulting statments. That's what the 1st amendment is for. Because ANYTHING is insulting to someone. Saying Christianity is good is insulting to many people. Saying it is bad is also insulting to many people. If you want to stop insulting people, you'd better choose one and only one side. Is that what you want?

Throughout history, goverments have proven themselves unable to police themselves once they start down that slippery slope. That's why the first amendment says Congress can enact "NO" piece of legislation. Not "only little ones". NONE.
