    Sure, but what's the alternative?  You can't clean up the mess while claiming that there's some super secret set of community standards that you'll get typed up and visible just any day now.  Well, okay, you could, but that's not transparent and, frankly, no one would stand for it.

    I won't be happy if cowboy moderation continues indefinitely, but I cannot imagine that Kos wants to do this forever.  For the short term, though, I really see nothing wrong with banning people simply because they seem to be making functional conversation impossible.

    If Kos gets a few wrong, then they can ask for clemency once the frontier settles down a bit.  But, honestly, anyone making posts that look like they're making functional conversation impossible probably isn't on the right track even if they intended their contributions to be perceived differently.

      and you can refine them as need be.  That's the alternative.

      If kos doesn't want to do it, hire someone.

      In my avatar, the blue bars show how many want Reps who COMPROMISE; the aqua bars show who wants Reps who STAND FAST no matter what. (Left=Overall; Center=Democrats; Right=Republicans.) And there's the problem!
