Re: From MAMEDev: Attention for all derivative builds

> Nowadays, Smit seems to have a much more hands-off approach,

It's a different world (to me) than it was in the early days of emulation and I've re-thought things. Rom requests for example, are the longest running traditional no-no on emulation forums. I saw the arguments 15 years ago - people didn't know if they were going to be sued over rom linking so there was that tension every day with a new rom post, but now in 2016? Send to pleasuredome and move on. A thread derails a bit? Just enjoy the ride and let's not worry about it. People bark at each other? Let them and go read something else if their horseshit doesn't entertain you.

I think mostly hands off modding is the best way for mameworld in 2016, a push to have the only things censored be terrible things like if someone posts about their human trafficking plans or something. We're not going to ban discussion of a frigging computer program license.

I'm done playing mommy too, separating barking brothers into their rooms. If other mods want to spend their personal free time doing it then they can go for it but this isn't a job. People are going to bark at each other and today I'd rather let them duke it out. I'm not going to stress myself out with making the website "family friendly 24/7" or anything.
