A suggestion about something I noticed on another polygamy forum system. This website is, at present, uninviting to newcomers due to the personal attacks, name calling, harsh language by a few individuals. Quite a few are put off bad this behavior and leave. It creates a bad witness of those who practice polygamy. What the other system seems to have done to prevent this is to create a set of debate forums. These forums are readable by anyone, but only writable by approved posters. If an individual violates the tone of debate, they are locked from writing. Then all the "touchy" subjects are allowed only in the debate section. This keeps the bulk of the forums safe for newcomers and free of the childishness seen here. I strongly suspect the membership here would grow dramatically, and by membership I mean those that sign up and stay longer as opposed to leaving soon because of an attack or the tone of a few.

Lessening the personal attacks here
