Even so, the essence of my point still stands.
I just thought I'd throw it out there because I remember how chest-thumpy this forum used to be a few years ago. And I always maintained that that type of environment drove away a lot more traffic than it brought in. Even if the traffic was good, I think it could've been even higher if people didn't have to worry about all the constant headaches and harassment. In my view, it's best not to take a chance and make sure I have the bases covered.
If things have changed around here since then, and we don't always have to have sheilds up, then that's great.
