Your just going to get mods involved if you continue. Leave it and move on so your not hurting the timeline, this is not a forum for these kind of discussions, if you thought it questionable than contact a mod yourself.The reformer, while you own the TL and what you write, you dont own the comments and the discussion. In this case I am calling out some questionable post and actually writing that maybe it shouldn’t be allowed here? It’s in the discussion. I actually agree with you that there is no point of this relativistic evaluation of OTL colonialism on this thread, but the posts I commented upon were on this TL and in my opinion should not stand undisputed.
I do understand your frustration about the sidetracking, but you also have the option of simply ignoring it. It’s not aimed at your writing. The threadmarks allows the readers to skip these comments as well.
I have no intention of leaving the TL, it’s an amazing effort and a great read.
