Response to N_E_1 for Tennis (Original post)

7. Outside of du we are looking like the adults in the room.

 

Of course we still have the rw media to contend with but even they are losing ground to the new media. That has been a big plus for us. The banter you mention on du is truly insignificant. We still have an excellent conversation going on here. I take part in the banter for fun and the more serious conversations for education.

Under this format I see no way around what you are describing unless we go to a fully moderated system with a strong authoritarian bent from the top down. The old du. Unlike politics, the owners of du decided it could be done better without that power structure, and gave up a lot of power. That leaves us where we are. Outright in your face racism would have never stood at the old du. More subversive? Yes. Blatant? No.
