they could become very heated on MW, but it is good that they exist there.
topics about what music is, what it does, whether the traditional components of it are necessary, etc.
Is it ok to talk heatedly about ‘site politics’? Shit really hit the fan a few years ago with debate about sexism on mw. Is this type of talk encouraged here?
I’ve certainly had big criticisms of mw over the years (anyone who knows who I am would realize that), but at least these topics were allowed to exist there (though generally locked at some point). I think that forums should be lively, and encourage strong opinions.
