What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
Here's an idea....designate some Sun Deck Moderators for the game threads and see if the folks there can keep it proper. Let the ORG people post on the threads as well if they want. Thus, if you gain ORG membership you have the advantage of posting at either place. Since most posters in the Sun Deck are just interested in talking about the game, let the little pet peeves of many on ORG (e.g. "whoo whoo" or "Dusty sucks" etc. ) slide and make the threads "anything goes" except extreme profanity or personal attacks. Just normal Reds talk like you'd hear at the bar or at the game.
