I can't imagine anything more likely to cause board sterility than public bickering between members (and before anyone bothers to defend it on the grounds of philosophical importance, that's how this thread certainly comes across to the majority who are not in the know and involved). At least one potential member has backed out in the past couple of days because of this thread specifically. Other members I'm aware of personally have stopped posting because of various recent threads involving member squabbling. I don't think a few moderator actions to try to get threads back to civil conversation can be compared to the effect of this type of thing for causing board sterility.

(Having to weed through 20+ pages of posts to determine which segments of which posts may potentially offend/violate/annoy etc. and should or should not be deleted or edited is also not fun. Admins here are volunteers, not paid employees or indentured servants. If you don't think it would be worth your time to do this kind of detailed selection, well, neither does anyone else).
