The problem we were dealing with was many women on the board and the staff saying that they feel uncomfortable in Misc and avoid it due to some of these remarks. So plenty of us thought we need to try to keep it in check.
I don't know about women, and I have
seen the 'tone' of conversation in Misc. moving downwards for a while -well parts of it anyway.
I have even been forced to find another board altogether to converse with one of my favourite T-BBSers (about things not Trek related) because they didn't feel comfortable in Misc, any more.
So, all-in-all I am in favour of this new one-strike policy even if I personally find it a bit harsh - I'm here every day and still learning to moderate myself, which isn't always easy, but the samples supplied by the Romulan... OK, I understand how some of it is over 'the line', could
have been dealt with on the basis of 'friendlies' -IMO of course.
