Posted:I agree - it makes it so much better without people being able to slag stuff off while hiding behind a fake name.When I found this site, I was very surpised to see that unregistered users could post messages, you had to register for every other message board I'd seen.Unfortunately, it seems that even this board isn't immune from the muppets.------------------King of all things Walrus

Posted:Erm, itsgottab, what evidence are you basing this theory of yours on?I know for a fact that is was not a hasty decision and that the moderators were all consulted before it was finalised.It is a thoroughly good idea as it stops idiots hiding behind anonymity and posting. Why they cant stand in the open is beyond me.

Posted:hey dan,I did a quick count on this thread;10 votes to 2 (including yours) registration is a good thing, greater good for the greater number. please feel free to fill us in on any 'personal philosophy' which would preclude someone from registering before giving their opinion?Josh

Posted:the demoncratic system is a cunning ploy to marginalise those of a differeing opinion/perspective, its exclusionary, i think a system which is inclusionary might benifit the 'whole' better. but then again the marjority think its better a few suffer than we as a hole.

Posted:i forgot, 'conslutation' are the moderators the only people who use this board, i do realise some do post the largest number of replies, but surely large numbers of post like large amounts of money don't equate with the best deciscions to be made for all the people.

Posted:itsgottab,I understand what you are getting at. Some people like to be annonomous. I am a private person too. Anyone can register and use this site for free. I do not discourage differing views.Yes, we have rules, like quote: "Respect that not everyone will have the same opinion as you. Yes, you may not agree with it, but respect their opinion, just as you would hope yours would be."So I guess you too may respect where I am coming from in trying to make this board a better place for "all".It really would be impossible for me to please everyone
