On the other hand, if overmoderating this forum or calling people out for saying "Legwand is so lazy, he should try learning to play defense"(just an example, the Legwand war is classic on the other board, and that's a comment I've seen more than once, which forms the basis for my argument) is what it takes to keep this board from becoming the way the other board is..then so be it. I'm sure it does scare some people away, but I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing. I value..and I know a lot of our posters value...the level of sophistication and intelligence on the Nashville end of this board.
Think of it this way...
the NP.com boards are the bar you go to have a beer with your buddies, goof off, and maybe talk a bit about the Predators.
These boards are where you go when it's the next morning, you've sobered off, and it's time to get back to business.
Which is completely fine. I think a few of us took some of the "higher standards" comments as a personal attack... which is something this board is supposed to be above...
