What's this, some kind of sick parody of thinking? You don't like the
facts, so make up your own? FAI discussion on SL4 did get vastly farther,
did generate far more useful information and may - it's too early to be
sure - have generated (gasp!) genuine consequences in the Real World.
Whether moderation in general or my moderation in particular had anything
whatsoever to do with those results is a debatable point, but the results
*were* far superior. If/when our archives ever come online, you can see
for yourself. Until then, adieu.
