Phat Rephat, whoever that is, complains that excessive moderation is turning VP into “an echo chamber”:
VD, I’ve been following you for quite a while and appreciate your viewpoint and the information shared. Of late, however, it seems you’re shifting to the echo chamber model. I agree with your desire to keeping on-topic and without profanity. But not allowing contradicting views or the calling out of the GE when he appears to be losing focus, is not of value to any of us; concern trolls aside.
Well, obviously I am terrified of VP being called an echo chamber. I mean, what could be worse than an Alt-Right echo chamber? Where else will people be able to find conservative, or liberal, or mainstream media views being expressed?
Clearly we must act! I will take his well-considered advice.
Trolls, defeatists, anklebiters, have at it. Comment as you see fit. Be defeatist. Be despondent. Share your contradicting views. Call out the God-Emperor. Insult your fellow commenters. I’m not going to moderate anything at all. Moderators, stand down and let the commenters comment freely, as they obviously desire.
I will also unspam every spam comment that catches previous trolls.
It’s certainly less work and time-investment on my part. I look forward to seeing precisely how much the comments are going to improve and how much value is going to be added to everyone.
UPDATE: Four hours and 47 minutes later:
It’s Phat Repat; I get your point.
PS This is a Mea Culpa. 😉
Point? What point could that possibly be? I’m just astounded by all the added value!
