David, FWIW, I think you and the other moderators are doing a good job in handling the controversial "resource" the Soap Box represents. Personally, I'm happy with whatever you folks want to do with it, as I try very hard not to go there.

While I recognize the benefit of having a "safety valve area" on a high-traffic forum, it's unfortunate that otherwise mature adults need such a resource and require others to manage their behavior.
