I don't think Clio and atleast some like dece really did intentional harm. Clio discusses shit and it pisses some people off, in that case it is other users behavior that needs rather then hers.
Don't get me wrong, some most certainly do contribute nothing but negative and they should be banned hard (still say they should give me mod privileges, I might abuse them but I also abuse the fuck out of shitposters like they are one of my kids backtalking me). Thats why I'm honestly hoping some more mods and maybe some janitors if the powers that be think they would help. More mods to help police shitposters would be a good thing.
But just disagreement is not shitposting, even vehement disagreement. You and I had a massive disagreement over the Bundy shit but after I realized I should not transfer my disgust with Bundy to you because you support him. I definitely disagreed on him but I could respect your position because I respect you, because you put forward a logical argument for your support (though in retrospect I think you were more supporting the militias defending Bundy's welfare ass then Bundy's ass itself).
I don't think you respect Clio though, hence your lack of respect for her positions and her even being on this site. With good reason I suppose, its entirely possible she acted catty or something to breed that dislike or where you never saw eye to eye or something else, only history knows and he's not talking. But your lack of respect for her blinded you to whether she is really contributing or not. I think she does even if I rarely agree with it though I also say the same thing anytime someone says the 1911 is anything but perfect and FN is the greatest firearm brand in the modern world but only because Colt sucks these days. Also thats not an opinion, thats entirely factual.
Whatever else though Clio is certainly.....well she is divisive to put it in the most charitable terms. She is not alone however. Someone being divisive is no reason to remove them, even if its causes wedges in a community. I think, personal opinion, the real test of a online community is how well it can overcome and even embrace wedges. To many failing communities turn into stagnant shitholes by doing away with wedges, by being unwilling to leave their comfort zone and engage against people who hold a difference of opinion.
I think that has been our strength is our willingness to embrace diversity. Christian conservatives and ladyboy loving deviants, right wing, left wing, libertarian, Northern Yankees and Southern Gentlemen and people from West Virginia who are better then both, Europeons, Russians, Iranians, where ever the hell Broseph is from, full on gun nuts, people okay with some limits, even the occasional anti-gunner who
