Well, since the topic would tend to be human behavior, I suppose you could answer the question if you chose to.
Currently you've suggested one strategy to the board. Not reading posts, and not responding if you don't believe you can do so civilly. I'm suggesting that that strategy falls short in certain circumstances where it may actually contribute to escalation. Tension on the board increases, and then there's a forest fire in your terms.
I'm asking for suggestions for extra strategies in the board's toolkit. Because it happens often enough (and with different posters, so I'm not being specific) that other strategies would be worthwhile. So I'll put the question to you. Do you know of any other ways to prevent these forest fires?
