I have a hard time buying into the "exploding issue" idea. IMO, it is a non issue. There are rules and they were followed. I am not sure what there is to continue discussing. It is kind of like discussing religion or politics, though people have different viewpoints, few are going to budge off of their opinion. I think we have pretty well hashed out the differing viewpoints on the closed thread.

This was a point I was trying to get to in the other thread but JT and others were just so vocal that their point of view was the correct point of view and it kinda killed it. People dont know how to take emotion out of conversation and have a civil conversation.

This is 2019. Civil conversation died in like 1993.

This issue is a growing one in athletics in general, not just disc golf. Civil discourse over it is a good thing. It is probably inevitable that it goes down the road to the dump but seems like it should be given that chance as the topic doesn't lie within the site's self-described "no go zones". Is everything controversial subject to arbitrary moderation?

Exploding issue? One example of it so far.

And as far as the people who are against it, we've heard two examples so far.

One competitor complaining to her husband and one FPO player who consistently breaks the rules.

Just once I’d love it if a mod had the balls to stand up for someone being marginalized and just fkn toss the few who can’t play nice. Stop creating space for people to be ****ty to others, it’s normalizing that response. You have the power to set the tone. Maybe you don’t care, but I like to imagine you do.
