Can we still post in the non-locked topics?

4. Find more conservative voices. This is the most hypothetical thing I'll mention. I think some of the current imbalance is because of the lack of conservative voices(though there are some great and persuasive ones like Razi and others) that are willing to speak up. Let's be honest most of the users on hsd are conservative but that isn't reflected in cc. I'm not sure how this is fixed, but the discussion would be better if the number of voices was more balanced.


:lol: This is definitely true. I'd love some more people to speak up besides me and Masked Midnight, rather than sending me PMs telling me I'm right. :P

The mod team signed a secret pact of fascism.

I all seriousness, I think we freaked after the debacle with VermontKing and want some time to think carefully about the future and structure of HSD. In the meantime, we're trying to be transparent (see Drew's post about VK) include members in the discussion (see this thread).

I get the sex stuff getting temporarily locked, but the feminism one? Really?

Also, I may be an ancient from pre-NCFCA/Stoa civil war days but didn't we used to have a forum for adults (although I question whether a birth control thread really needs a sexy side forum for it. If parents don't want their views on birth control challenged, they should be more assertive in their kid's life.)?

I'd contend it would be better if there was a "hidden" forum for adults/18+; we'd rather have more users than scare away the hyper-conservative ones.

The reasoning was that it was the thread that triggered most of the other threads. But yeah, that one surprised me too.

Sorry, my trigger finger was a little too hot. I'll reopen that one.
