It's hard to moderate opinion. I don't see how the comments section here differs from anywhere else

It's less open to new people. Someone comes in here and posts something casually stupid and they're immediately flamed and chased off. They don't return. I've posted on a few messageboards that turned into that. They all died a slow death, as new people don't show up to backfill old people that stop coming around quite as much.

It's a hard thing to fix, but it's something that happens when the regulars are a small group with largely the same attitude and very closely overlapping opinions. If someone doesn't have that same attitude and same opinion they won't join.

There's what, maybe 15-20 regular posters here? We're probably losing them faster than gaining new blood. And there's no denying we're fairly closed-minded - no matter what game you like or how you like to play it you're going to get called an idiot.
