If I were Paul, I would avenge your post by actually conducting a social experiment - make you a moderator for MD for a few days - and see the results. That way,
--you will be forced to spend time reading everyone's posts.
--You will be forced to spend time editing and deleting insult-filled posts.
--You will be forced to spend time sending private messages and emails to the offenders.
--While doing the above, you won't have enough time left to post something on your own, (and that will hurt the artist within you).
--The best part: you will be forced to practice something that is against your own views - censorship.
--And as if that is not enough, you will have to take the heat from those whose posts you will delete
Once in their (moderator's) shoes, you would see things differently (probably). The ultimate revenge for an intellectual being, isnt't it ?
Ok, I'm just kidding. Peace!
