As GMS has grown, we have had to develop a fair and efficient way of moderating the site. I, and I know you, desire for GMS to remain a site where we can post without the need to put up with indecent or rude behavior. We have simply reached a membership size (14,000+) where this is needed.
Here are the components of the measure we are taking to keep GMS a pleasure to visit.
With all this in place, I will now lift the membership moratorium. There are still some back end changes I want to make in the membership screening process, so I will move forward a bit more slowly.
