Stereotyping on poor snakes again No

What happens if a thread starts off well and then later down the line a squabble breaks out. Would it still be moved to TVP? If that is the case what happens to the good part of the thread and the information/discussion laid out within. I understand it would be moved to not offend anybody but good information could be dragged in.

Why not just moderate?

Split thread? Allows both conversations to continue.

Isn't that what we already had, Dom?

Yeah, we were able to split posts, but we didn't have a place where people could spit venom to their heart's content without getting any of it on innocent bystanders...

You really think "innocent bystanders" are going to stay out?

For all the clashes of the future. Should have been there already for the clashes of the past. Might as well take something unproductive and make it free for all fun.

RE: This section
I have seen setups like this work well before. It can allow for a fairly light touch style of moderation while still keeping original threads rigidly on topic and productive. Consider:
- A thread starts out on topic, but degenerates into nonproductive discourse and/or off topic discourse.
- Off topic discourse can be resolved without too much trouble by (carefully) splitting the thread
- Non-productive discourse can be split and moved into a more loosely moderated section of the board
Noone loses the ability to have their say unless they break forum rules, and moderators don't have to feel as shy about pouring ice over a confrontation. They aren't chilling free speech, they're redirecting it. Members who want to keep their posts in the main section of the board must behave, but can still let off steam when they want to in these other sections.

In the board I came from it was called "No holds barred".

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
