So, something that may help with some folks' attitudes, as well as allow people to bow off steam, I had a thought -
Would it be possible to make an 'anonymous' subforum in the Basement?
Essentially, everyone (except mods, of course!) sees everyone else's post as being from 'nobody' or 'anonymous', or whatever.
Obviously, people can still out themselves by saying "I live in Harpers Ferry," or "I was over at Steve's yesterday," but that's on them. All Pinside rules would still be enforced - i.e. You can't personally attack anyone. But if you don't NAME who you're attacking, then.... let frustration out.
Just a thought. Probably some good/bad things that I hadn't thought of, too.
