Out of curiosity, if the penalty for making comments was automatically 10 points, regardless of what the comment was, would this still be a compromise people were willing to make?  (Not saying I'm on board - I'm just curious.)
I don't fault you for shutting down the deluge, but the fact that you are even considering this as a solution is worrying.

I'm not.  As I said - the main reason I shut it down is that at its core, it was contrary to the purpose of the forum.  I was just curious if the forum community would be willing to sacrifice commenting to get it back.  Apparently they're not - they want all or nothing.
The problem with this isn't that it's not "all or nothing."  The problem is that you would be setting people up for draconian penalties.

Torie, you and I respect Spade.  Do you think he's snapped or is it possible he's on to something?

Eh, Inks was always like this.  You never had to read the moderator's board

No. Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise

So, since both sides are unwilling to compromise, we have no other choice but to proclaim the Commonwealth and cut off Inks' head, while forcing The Mikado to exile in the Netherlands.

I second this.

The only thing I'm worrying about is The Mikado returning from exile after a decade, resuming his powers and then sentencing all inkscides to be hanged, drawn and quartered. Also, ordering Lief to be digged out of his grave.
