POLL DESCRIPTION

While some readers have been arguing for more editor intervention on the Message Boards - to give warnings, delete offensive posts, and persuade people to behave themselves - other readers complain that the Editor has been too "heavy handed" lately.

So - what do you think?

the Editor should clean house

The Editor should wade in there and start banning people, and laying down the law - something has to be done!

the Editor should moderate much more

The Editor needs to intervene much more often, so that the Boards become civil again.

the Editor should moderate a little more

The Editor should take action a little more often than he currently does.

things are fine as they are now

The Editor is doing a great job, the Boards are fine, and nothing should be changed.

the Editor should back off a little

The Editor has been a little heavy handed lately. He needs to lighten up.

the Editor should back way off

The Editor needs to stop trying to be a censor. Just let people post what they want to say.

the Boards need no moderation

Anyone should be allowed to post anything on the Boards. If people get offended, that's their problem.

no opinion

I don't have an opinion.
