"""There was a purge of right-leaning posters a year or two ago""


What was the history behind this?

c "
***************************************************************
Politics.
And as is the case with politics, one group thinks another view is evil.
And comments tend to become personal affronts to both groups.
And personal affronts always require mobilization of the hordes.

So basically people were posting after having a few too many cocktails.

The FIRE board split into the Campfire and the Liberal Fires - which still
take occasional pot-shots at one another though are largely on speaking terms
with posts arguing about safe withdrawal strategies.
A group of posters went to form a Facebook group - which continues on with
a somewhat more conservative bent to the posts.
