That is why my proposal is infinitely superior. The changes announced by pdurrant include a critical loophole: Apple bashing threads would be totally permissible as long as the other side didn't pipe up, thus converting orgies of Apple hate into platform wars. By living in isolated bubbles where noone can contradict us, we will effectively end the platform wars.

Excellent.
Maybe even give the ability to post by invitation only. Sort of a Linkedin type system. Just got one from an old war buddy this morning. He has finally resurfaced, the same as ever, just a different name of course.
