General question on resource conservation: how do we protect and conserve the valuable human resources offered by this website?
I’m thinking of the general meltdown that occurred in this thread: “Heat-pump water heater vs. instantaneous water heater” posted by Steve Bumpus a couple of weeks ago, which resulted in some very angry words and the loss (temporary, I hope) of one of the most distinctive voices in this forum. I have found Robert Riversong’s contributions mostly informative and often challenging, in the best possible way: I shall miss them. I hope he returns soon.
How can we prevent this happening again? No anonymous posting has been suggested. Other options: more active moderation? more guidance on question formats (this one was beset with multiple variables and internal contradictions)? any other thoughts?
