We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

Why not bring back Elizabeth Warren to right things? And she isn't the only great public servant we have who will call a spade a spade and correct the corruption that injures all of us.
I know at least four people, current with their mortgages and with good credit, whose banks have renegotiated loans with *higher* payments under TARP, and who have lost their homes under false foreclosures.
It's corrosive to everyone's morale-- not the American Dream but waking up into the Bush nightmare ethos.
