Didn't stop you from inserting yourself into an exchange I had with another poster....Stromkraft wrote: I don't care too much about this. No matter what took place in the past
That's why we have a Lounge.Uncomfortable subjects are not like taking the piss provided the subject is treated in an acceptable way. Of course I don't think politics nor religion or other subjects alien to music production fits within Music and Audio Production, so where different discussions are taking place is important to many people I think. Of course, politics or religion is not fit anywhere according to the rules set by Ableton.
And this is exactly about that time when Ableton decided to make this a rule. (you weren't a member yet)
The banning of certain posters calmed down the hostility of this forum, not the ban of the topics that they got hostile about.
Posters like Steko claiming something else, are just trying to rewrite history, because that view aligns with their views.
But the truth is. Moderation would have stopped the hostility back then, quicker banning of the posters in question would have too. While banning of topics just led to the Lounge being a graveyard now, where every discussion that borders on politics somehow (and almost all of them can be seen as such) has everyone expecting a lock of the thread very soon
Feels a little like abused spouses tip-toeing around a randomly violent husband....
Anf the fun part is: People are still hostile to each other, we still don't have proper moderation and even spammers still get a warning(!) before they get banned!
