That long, huh? You're a pretty liberal moderator!
We tried a painful experiment, letting people post for discussion pretty much whatever they wanted in a Lounge, this is at the LargeFormat Forum
. There came a time when if you pulled up "New Posts" the first 15 posts would be politics. One out of three threads were nasty political discussions (and even threatening at times) with nothing related even vaguely to photography. So we clamped down-to most peoples appreciation. A handful cried censorship, but it is now a friendly place to hang out and discuss PHOTOGRAPHY!
