    That's true, in a real TH. Maybe some things could be responded to immediately. Explanation of rules and practices are possible. As long as it doesn't end up a long argument. --Other things could be responded to as we'll take it under advisement and will get back later. Some things do require discussion.

    Most often those discussions should happen in public.

    Some are, shall we say, executive decisions. I'm fine with those as long as they are communicated. Consider the copyright rule, admin and mods have to look at the legal issues and comply. THere's no need to discuss, just announce it. Other things could be open to discussion.

    The only time a discussion should be held in private is if and when it is about a specific named individual. All others can happen in the light of day.

    Perhaps that's another suggestion for improvement, let the mods run Town Halls.
    I requested it stop twice and a mod warning was issued. Itís being stopped, just not fast enough to your liking. That hardly justifies making the (offensive) assumption that we are doing nothing.

    And so you make a personal issue of it? Criminy. Let me report that...

    Even among four mods a discussion can go on forever. Adding 20 members to it will go on forever and a day.

    My boss, even his, and his, will come ask my opinion on things in the company, but then go off an make decisions. The forum is not a democracy but a business.

    In general, I agree, there should be as much communication as possible, but still understand meeting behind closed doors.



    Naturally, on this, on any matter here, my opinion on it is not more valuable than yours, so who knows what they'll decide on more open discussion.
