You're so concerned with the quality of discussions on this board, I wonder if it has occurred to you at how disruptive it is to discussions to continually "popping up" in threads to say we have no right to discuss it.
If you don't want to discuss allegations, then here's an idea: don't. Let the people who do continue to discuss with others that do. It's not your job to play board policeman. If the moderators don't want discussions about PEDS on this board, they will say so.
But isn't it my right to express my opinion when I think there is no foundation to an argument? And that it is morally objectionable to boot?
It isn't that I don't want discussions of PEDs. It is that I don't want every good performance to turn into an immediate witch hunt.
Are you a moderator who gets to decide when I can't speak up? If not, I would suggest not telling me my role either.
