There are some built-in problems with a site moderated by Chris.

He is an officer of TSA and probably he works there as an employee as

So there is going to be a lot of subtle direct and indirect pressure put on
him to moderate on posts which may  not be in line with official policy or
official political interests. We will never know because moderation
(censoring) takes place prior to postings.

To Ramadoss 4/28: The forum started by Chris Richardson is semi-moderated.

Theosophist who thinks for himself and his agenda is the improvement of the
organizational culture and governance model at the TSA.
