I know that personally, there's a few who do not want to engage with me in certain discussions, because of how I conduct myself. For me personally, I don't really care, as, if they don't have the assertiveness to state their case, then I'm not going to cater to them, to hear their case.
But, I'm one individual, not a whole forum. Such outlook of mine, translated into a forum atmosphere, doesn't work, as it would mean that only a handful of us will be left standing. This forum is not about the survival of the "fittest".
That means creating an environment where as many people as possible feel free enough to want to exercise their freedom of speech, rather than a select few whose personality affords them the gumption to exercise it. For those personalities that are conflict avoidant, shouldn't this forum exercise some degree of moderation to ensure that those people don't feel threatened to exercise their freedom of speech? It is a personalities forum, afterall, is it not?
So it was *sarcasm* that I correctly picked up. I knew it.Nevermind. I forgot entps aren't the best with sarcasm.
