BOOM, I'm The New Guy

Post by Victoribus_Spolia »

So, I'm The New Guy......I was wondering, what is the environment like here? Is it pretty free as far as expressing ideas? Or do the moderators stifle controversial topics? Are folks pretty reasonable and and civil in discussion, or is this site loaded with uneducated trolls?

Kinda looking for a balance, I am looking for serious and quality conversation on all topics, including the controversial and occasionally taboo.

Is this a good place to be? Lemme know...

Welcome.

There is no stifling of controversial topics by moderators. In terms of subject matter, pretty much anything goes. There are some forum rules, but there's nothing that states that any particular topic is off-limits, just rules designed to facilitate constructive discussion (with varying degrees of success in that aim).

Most people are generally reasonable and civil and there are very few trolls. I wouldn't want to comment on the level of education of any trolls that there might be. A lot of people would say that the level of education is not as directly relevant as the quality of their arguments. That's probably a subject for debate in itself.

Your best bet is to look at the tone of some of the conversations and judge for yourself.
