Recently I listed a poster I highly respect, Fearless9, as a real trader in a thread requesting such nominations. Later I received a PM from him that he had ceased posting here, and I think I do not reveal any confidences to quote his reason: "...sadly I felt that I was not cut out for trench warfare." I hope that F9 eventually relents, because he has been a paragon of logic and good sense in commenting on threads which lack both. And we have lost many others, one of my favorites of old being Nononsense. So I ask myself, how bad does it have to get before no one worth a shit is left to post observations of value? Why do not more people deluge idiotic posters with the calumny they deserve? I have many times warned that there is a Gresham's Law of posting: bad posting drives out good. Since many of you are city folk, let me explain the thread title to you. In my South, it is a tradition that the disenfranchised who don't like the politics where they live pack the pickup, hitch up the Airstream and move to another trailer park. What is the solution? I propose that moderators be more aggressive and institute some minimum quality standards with more comments that begin with "You dumb fuck...."
