Getting some complaints about the overly political (& off-topic) nature of discussion lately in this thread;
Tone it down folks, back to the main topic at hand please, I don't want to start moving/deleting posts etc.

Finally some solid moderations. Haven’t seen that since texrat. Usually mods go full blown attacks and handing out angry PMs and infractions points or bans. Take it slow and let the users adjust!

GJ!

I fully agree (... to Dave! ).

Actually, the users on this thread and others at TMO have proven to moderate themselves quite well (one of the reasons why I enjoy the conversations on TMO so much).

It is rather calling for a moderator instead of kindly asking to cease an overly off-topic / political discussion first (e.g. as @mosen did, which successfully ended discussing the original rant and its single harsh reply), which I perceive as disturbing.

As long as a conversation is apparently fruitful (technically, intellectually or in any other way) for the majority of participants, IMO there is no reason to call "the police"; otherwise we may end up in defunct conversations due to the enforced use of "politically correct" language (as @Dave999 depicted).

P.S.: ... or discuss StarWars analogies.

It just crossed my mind that I actually don’t know how this “situation “ was handled at all

But let’s assume it was a solid and peaceful slow moderation without any pms or infractions or any other war crimes .

Yes! Peaceful!

Excellent! I think everyone should do it. Me, you, jolla, the Russians and especially the the kernel developers can be a bit harsh.
