As for Peter's moderation... Blaming an Administrator for blocking something on the forum he created and he maintains is like going to someone's party and complaining to the host that she hasn't invited the proper guests!

I believe it is closer to the situation of going to a party and having the host circulate around telling guests what they can and cannot talk about amongst themselves.  "Conservative topics?  Not at my party."  While it is true that it may be the host's party, I would still find that a bit "odd" and would leave in short order.  Unless, of course, one of DanB's women was in attendance and I needed a victim that night.

As for my being abrasive, sometimes there is no polite way to call a spade a spade.

Regarding tmichels, this is Thys Michels, a software engineer from South Africa with expertise in force.com development.  He was hired by LC in May 2013.

Hi, long time listener, first time caller.  I want to encourage all of you regulars to please keep your elbows sharp and stay engaged with each other on this forum.  As a layperson, often barely able to comprehend much of the sophisticated analysis which takes place on this forum, I welcome all of your advice and divergent points of view.  I dipped my toes into LC and Prosper last March/April knowing little more than what I saw on a CBS Sunday Morning show.  This forum educates me (to the extent possible), encourages me (my first default wasn't the end of the world), and warns me (avoid irrational exuberance).  Despite the sometimes strong disagreements, it should always remain game on.  Thank you, I'll hang up now.

Hi Core, perhaps you could consider starting a reddit group for us. It would be more self-moderating and no direct control. Plus, I think that format better suits getting more relevant information. Tired of digging through this forum style to find the good stuff.
