Let's ask ourselves this question before we post: is society at large going to realize a benefit from what I have to contribute?
Now let's behave, please and thanks
When one posts to virtually any thread on VV one deals with posters on those treads, who while one may not agree with, one can expect a reasonably well thought out and factual response that does not deteriorate into mudslinging and outright false information being passed off as fact.. This does not seem to be the case with Bear Mountain. Why is that?
The answer in my opinion is your uneven monitoring as to what is acceptable on the Bear Mountain thread. I think that you use the Bear Mountain thread to drive traffic to the site. As a recent example you have deleted a thread by LJ that was in response to a direct insult from another poster - yet the original posters insult was allowed to stand. As another example you allowed to stand a poster refering to someone else who is not a VV poster as an "arrogant bastard". This was allowed to stand and the examples go on and on.
It is time that you montor the name calling, innuendo, false reporting, out right lies and the like from the main offenders on this thread. If you don't you will see the continuing decline of intelligent posters to the point that VV becomes irrelevant.
No one is saying that one cann't have lively debate but at least bring the Bear Mountain thread into line with the other threads and censure those who use VV for their own personal attacks.
