This forum likes to keep close tabs on what people say to each other, for understandable reasons given that young children use this site frequently.
The moderators do a good job of keeping this forum somewhere you can feel free to ask questions and voice opinions, while also preventing abuse and hatred.
It's a bit extreme for my tastes, simple arguments aren't really allowed even if everything is kept calm, but that is how it has to be, if moderators made exceptions they would have a lot more work on their hands reading every single post and stepping in at just the right moment.
At any rate, a chat room is too instantaneous, things can and would spiral out of control at a very fast rate and moderators cannot be in chat rooms 24/7.
