I actually liked the Punch and Judy aspects of the Insiders board - it kept everyone on their toes.
The problem, as I see it, is that we now have this forum for serious, "keep the pinky pointed outwards when sipping tea" discourse, while Insiders is going to be policed away from the norm of people net-screaming.
I love melts, and political melts most of all, and hope that this place evolves into a refuge of sanity, while Insiders remains the vituperative carnival of hate we all know and love, providing a place to "take it outside" as the situation merits.
No matter the board, you never fail to crack me up.
PS- Love Japan. Arm 'em to the hilt. Just take a look at who else lives in that hood.
