It's up to the posters themselves, not to some thought policeman trying to run this most unregulated board.

And so it goes. Your libertarian instincts prevail, even in the overwhelming evidence of the destruction it caused right here on this board.

"Unregulated" nearly always leads to anarchy, and with the well documented results commonly codified as the Tragedy of the Commons. (There are other outcomes, of course: bullying, dictatorship, etc.)

There's perhaps a reason why METAR became a cesspool (hint: politics), and died and was then resurrected, thanks to Wendy and - need I point it out? - Regulation. Politics is banned. More to the point, she remains the cop on the beat - and even then people come in and try to push their partisan points of view.

"It's up to the posters themselves." You are too funny.
