    I just wondered if Mitchell is coming back to the Religious section. I understand you guys are trying different paradigms to see what works and what doesn't.

    This in itself is interesting. However, Mitchell seems to have a talent to explore the unknown that is rare.

    Most of the rest of us fall into our own perspective and can fail to see, or build on the unique perspectives of others.

    One of my own side interests is collective intelligence. Meaning, is it possible to design a platform where a higher order of insight occurs from combining the insights of others?

    Understanding how moderation effects this is part of my interest. So far I have concluded that skill to create such an atmosphere is unusual, and probably out of my league.

    Anyway, I am sure that moderating the religious section is a major PIA (pain in the ass). So, if it is not too much of a pain, I hope Mitchell returns.

    in mitch's own words "the balance has shifted in the religion section and I am ready to give up" - these words were written towards the end of july, and even though the rest of the mods tried to dissuade him from any rash action, it may well be that he's decided to call it quits, which would be a real shame

    imo the name change from "religion" to "scientific study of religion" has resulted in a different dynamics within the religion subforum, and i'm pretty sure mitch was not happy about it
