This is just my opinion, but I think the moderation on the D forums should be a bit more ban-happy.
The best moderation is done by moderators that are actively participating and diffusing conflict. Or just close threads that have become unproductive. Or move threads to an off-topic forum.
Flamewars tend to arise from misinterpretation or just two people being tired after work, divorce or whatever… But there aren't actually many flamewars in the D forums. Just strategic disagreement, passionate disagreement.
You have many people being passionate because they want to write beautiful code. And well, a simpler language than C++ allows your write more beautiful code. Maybe that is also why you use D daily. Maybe most of those that you would ban actually are in agreement with you if you sat down around a coffee table? Maybe they get frustrated after several years, because they cannot do like you, write beautiful code every day?
I don't know.
The only thing I know is that I appreciate that D now is on track to become what I was looking for many years ago. Despite it happening in slow motion.
I am not unhappy with that. I would be much more happy with a D3, because then things would not move in slow motion.
But I don't depend on D and totally understand that you and others have more reasons to feel passionate about D2 as it is today than those of use that only have D as a hobby.
Anyway, I am pretty sure that if you, I and the OP sat down around a coffee-table, then we would agree on most things if we shared our perspectives face to face. Maybe we can do that one day.
