What I am for is weeding out deadweight and certain useless alter ego posts.
Difficult: - Apparently many here see their alter egos as an integral part of their presence on TW and wouldn't want to give them up.
- Most if not all alter egos are not created by Newbies or people who just drop by occasionally but by well known members who exactly know what they are doing. And obviously they think it is good because otherwise they wouldn't be doing it.
- Some of the alters are brilliant, I think, but tastes about that seem to differ so it is difficult to single the "right" ones out.
Personally I totally agree that the alter ego thing is what makes it more and more annoying to come here and take part in the discussions. But again: as the alters are made basically by people who have been here long enough to know it seems to be the choice of many here to turn the board into what it is becoming. And for the above mentioned reasons I'd rather call on those alter ego masters to change their habits instead of asking the moderators to fulfill a deleting/banning job which is almost impossible to do correctly.
And I want to believe In the madness that calls 'now'
