Thanks for the comments. My basic point was that there should be a segregated part of the forum where those that want to focus on that type of stuff can go and be left alone to do as they want with those of a like mind. That would leave the rest of the forum available for those not of that mindset to feel safe from those that like to prey on them simply because they do not want to discuss a topic to the extent of some others, etc.
Understood. In the sense you've described, I see potential value in separate sandboxes, as long as those playing in one can see what is going on in the other and agreeably participate within the more defined parameters of the other sandbox, if they choose to. As with any online community, it ultimately still remains up to each individual member to monitor and police their own posts to move discussion forward.
