I think it should stay, but I also think that additional moderators should be appointed to get rid of Nazi sympathizers, racists, and others who make trads look bad.
This, but besides that, it's that unnecessary talk (whether or not it's racism or nazi sympathizing, it's imprudent and unnecessary) that would be a legitimate reason to shut the site down. If people don't want anything to do with FE, have it be because they do not want to love God. Have it be because they want a hardened heart. DON'T have it be because someone got all excited to check out traditionalism and then logged onto a site where topics include that kind of nonesense and leave- because it's not
part of the faith, and the fact is it doesn't even matter who is right- maybe at the final judgement God will say "And all those black people? I made 'em for the white people. They're trash, with no potential for anything" but the fact is, for all intents and purposes that kind of talk turns people away! I don't think the apostles treated those who they were evangelizing that way- with no concern at all for how they might re-act, and with no consideration for how someone might (although wrongly) not take the faith seriously because of it's practitioners.
That is, of course, fallacious- leaving a group because of how it's members behave. But it is not an excuse or a defense. We should make concessions within the bounds of the faith for people who have an interest in it, and do everything possible short of compromising it in order to make people desire it. Do we want to save souls or haze somebody into an exclusive club membership?
FE needs to stay up, but I think a stronger moderating presence is very necessary in order to enforce some of those rules. After the moderation of the forum died down, people got used to the rules being broken so now when a couple people are banned for doing it there's a big outcry when if we remember back, teh reasons given for them being banned have always, as long as the boards been moderated, been enforced.
