So I deleted my account awhile back after the way I was being treated here, but have still been lurking a bit. I've seen that there is actual moderation here now and the users who were making my visits here particularly unbearable have deleted or been banned, so I decided to give RSP another chance.

There are a lot of cool people that I have enjoyed having discussions with here that I'm excited to reconnect with.

Welcome back, Claire.

Here's a nice benefit of the New RSP: though some might lament the loss of a few luminaries here, think of the many more people from the rest of the site who might want to try the waters here now that we're required to be civil to each other.

Our female population just increased from 0 to 1!

Or is Lynette still around? I haven't seen her in while. Regardless, positive change!

Well I'm no liberal now anyway. I'm full on leftist at this point.

Weird. If this is an echo chamber, for some reason half the echoes reverberating back to me sound like snarky comments about how liberal this place is and how persecuted conservatives are.

If anything this place seemed like a very far right echo chamber to me, especially before moderation.

Welcome back I'm sorry things got so ugly.

An answer to the other person's question, I do believe meercat has tipped someone recently.

If your political scale only goes from the Republicans on one end and Democrats on the other, and you're all the way to the right on that scale, then I could see how this place would seem that way.

To me "the left" here is actually pretty centrist and even a bit right wing tbh

I'll break it down another way:

There are basically three camps in RSP.

In the middle you have conservatives. To the left you have somewhat milquetoast liberalism. Then to the right you have far right.

If you're far right, and you consider everyone at all to the left of you to be the left, then this place will seem very left wing.

Welcome back.
I will probably disagree with you on most political topics (at least as far as economics goes; I think we are all good on human rights and the like) - as I did back then.
I generally try and do so politely though

This time I know our side will end up squabbling amongst ourselves on an obscure internet RSP forum!

There was a time here where, even though I would have never said that the majority of the posters were right wingers, the majority of posts were by right wingers. 3 or 4 sentence responses at best, trying to troll. The ratio was the most clear when it came to thread creators: Poisoned well after poisoned well. That's probably at about the time DCAnderson quit: I spent weeks without making a post then, as the thread topics were bad, and there was nothing to talk about. A big percentage of the quality left wing posters stopped posting too, and some far less civil one took their place, leaving a very sad state of affairs.

Some those posters were banned even under the old moderation. Others have been banned already. A few cleaned up their act a little. Some remain making the kind of post that, while it's not against whatever Matthew is using for moderation, still provides zero information, is just antagonistic, and I'd still call negative to the site.

The good part is that with less direct insults, people find said kind of posts easier to ignore, which can only help the discussion: Most of the site's loss of quality, even during the end of the last stages of the previous stint of moderation, came from the forum getting flooded with such zero information, zero dialogue discussions. I sure hope we do better this time, or that the new moderation regime realizes that such style of posting is a deliberate trolling tactic, and treats it accordingly.
