Safety is turning out to be an evolving policy. The technologies are changing, and so are the possible consequences. In my thread Things that close your thread I was impressed with the level of hostility that seemed to be generated. I wasn't offering suggestions, I was stating the facts! Most of it seemed to have come from new users, who felt I was somehow restricting what they could talk about. In later discussions we have people new to this site basically trying to show where we allowed discussions in the past. Problem was, it was old news. The threads put up for show were years old. One of the conclusions I reached is people new to the site, who don't understand the flavor of what this place is about, are not really equipped to discuss (or argue, as the case may be) what is or is not appropriate. Gear heads (I do not mean this term in a derogatory way) want to be able to discuss those items that have been decided will not be discussed here. Ditto folks looking to make rail guns, Tesla coils, and other fascinating and unique ways of offing themselves or someone new to field. What this suggests to me is we need to be able to discuss rule changes without distractions of folks wandering in and adding their two cents. Their input is valuable, and if they stay active on this site it becomes even more so. I'm thinking of the filtering to the more experienced inputs. How about starting a safety forum where only users with, say, 2000 posts or more can enter? The idea is to refine the rules to reflect these changing technologies. I'm asking for one rule on this thread. If you want to step outside this rule please start another thread. Safety issues will not be discussed here! Only the idea of a safety only forum.
