writes "Why is /. becoming a homogenous monoculture of thought? We all know which are the "popular" subjects and which are the "verboten" subjects. To break the rules mean you get down modded, bad karma'd, and your dissent is silenced because peeps with negative karma get filtered out.
Why is this happening? Is it the moderation system, which encourages the bad behavior of squashing your foes? Is it a problem with tone, where everybody becomes more strident? Is the problem with the Acs?
How can we maintain a vibrant diverse culture here at Slashdot?"
