Came across these two sources (while browsing AA's case law board) that spell out some very interesting things that the community (not just members, but everyone) aught to consider when going forward, or being combative, about particular issues involving this forum during this crisis of "blame all on one moderator even if its incredibly nonsensical". Those resources are https://www.lesswrong.com/posts/tscc3e5 … y-pacifism and https://www.lesswrong.com/posts/TjWSLrZ … ept-garden (a response to the first link). There are probably more, but I'll keep on digging. What do you guys think?

The first resonates with me far more than the second.

I will admit, I dodn't read them both from start to finish (I skimmed them)
From what I could see, they seam to contradict each other, so I'm not sure, what the point you're trying to make is here.
Unless, you'd be so inclined to explain what your point here is, I don't see it as anything else except a new way for the "so called trolls" to start more drama.

I'm me. Just me. No one else. Only meeee!

@3, no, my point wasn't to start drama at all. If they contradict, that's because the second one is a response to the first one. I think the first one is more of a resonator than the second one.
