Letting something get out of hand until someone has to "Report a Post", or a mod/admin happens across a post gone bizarre is, in part, everyone's responsibility (IMO). That doesn't mean that YOU (as in you'all) have to be policing the board. But it could mean that you could drop a nice reminder, in a thread you are active in, if the thread starts to go bonkers.
So - the thread is closed. We (mod/admin) can only do so much. The saying: "You can lead a horse to water
..." comes to mind.
There are my meager thoughts for the morning.
