It may just be me but recently, I seem to have noticed an increasing level of unpleasant sniping between some members of the community. It’s not necessarily at a level that invites reports to the moderators but unpleasant enough that it often leaves a nasty taste, which even a glass of my favourite wine doesn’t always mitigate.
I usually consider wine to be one of the last remaining bastions of decent civility, so it seems to be a shame that things have descended to this state of affairs on occasion. I wondered whether it would be too much to suggest that consideration be given to appointing some form of moderation to manage this. Maybe, one or two moderators, who would have the authority to modify posts that perhaps overstep the mark (or may be perceived by some as doing so) and perhaps an icon to alert the relevant mod, so that s/he can consider the merits or not.
I know that some will argue that there are moderators already in place but to be honest, I have been reluctant to escalate some comments, as sometimes it seems that the remarks may not have been intended to offend and I wonder whether such reporting would be perceived as petty.
Anyway, just some personal musings. If this is something that the Society is willing to consider, may I suggest the likes of @laura or @Inbar, as both are invariably polite and sympathetic, when dealing with posters on this forum.
