Said it before, will say it again:
Compared to other forums I've been on the people here seem to be actually normal.
Some of that can be attributed to moderator control, but I think for the most part stepping in hasn't been necessary. I agree that ignoring real flame postings is the first good idea on the topic, the other is as Paul has pointed out that the flamer be removed, talked to in private, and if really necessary barred from the board.
That's an extreme step, but we found it was necessary on the old Gary Grigsby Pacific War mailing list. Not frequently, but it did happen a time or two over a couple of years.
I have enjoyed the level of discussion and the friendly and prompt help on this forum, in those terms it is the best I've encountered since starting computer wargaming. I quit more than one forum because of what Paul and David and Bill have mentioned.
Thanks all for a great board. I mean it.
