"I think there a few members who deliberately only do insult others, not in the heat of debate, but for the joy of it. They ought to be banned, it would be better for the site, and many has asked for it to happen."
"It would be worse for the site if P&Pdark was removed. P&P is needed as a vent-place and popular, it will stay. Don't go to P&P if you don't like it (=being insulted). Etc. "
That's a good way of putting it, the complaint has nothing to do with P&P dark, unfortunately I'm just receiving canned answers that have been posted time and time again. Same old thing, I guess people don't understand the difference or don't understand what they read...I tried..
I think it's more a question of priorities. For most of us, SP is about climbing, mountaineering, hiking, .. getting outdoors. Hanging out in p & p and talking politics is simply of no importance to the site.
The elves' time is a limited resource - they have families, jobs, and climbing trips of their own. Why should they spend their unpaid hours here playing babysitter because some idiots can't manage their own time wisely ?
If someone is upset with SP because they don't like p & p, then I would ask if perhaps said individual's time is better spent doing something more productive, like posting mountain / route pages or (shudder) actually climbing.
Before the web, we had usenet groups, and before that were .. well, I forget .. it was more than 20 years ago for me
If someone posts something on the internet that you don't like, you can just ignore them. It's that simple. Complain all you want, but then again some people just enjoy complaining for its own sake
