I'm a pretty middle-of-the-road centrist with libertarian sympathies. I think there's a decent diversity of viewpoints here and that's good, but I also would not care if there were more aggressive moderation against:
1) personal attacks against public figures
2) overly racial discussion (too many threads on race+violence/intelligence)
3) sexism -- the post Huddle tweeted about was offensive, pointless, and not worth keeping up on the boards
4) blatant misinformation. We have like 10 threads a day claiming that vaccines kill people and don't work.
I will note that much of the most aggressive and insulting posting comes from right-wing posters, as well as most of the misinformation.
Not to mention the brojos posting anonymously (and having admitted to doing so)… with the goal of stirring the hate-filled pot and attracting more clicks.
