@J0E – Not quite all. Many are more community-moderated.

Extremely Liberal.

Libertarian or Liberal with occasional forays so far left Pol Pot would blush.

A tickleership. Not sure if that is a word. But it should be.

I like to think we are somewhat self-policing. Say something stupid and you will be called on it.

More of a family-like dictatorship. Everyone’s say is in there but the final approving authority lies with the parents

Definitely, government knows best.

Monarchy. I’ll let Ben and Andrew have a sword fight to determine who gets to be the King and who gets to be the Queen.

Bendrew rules all. Because they’re really the only ones who know how it works.

Either an autonomous collective, or self-perpetuating autocracy.

A benevolent biarchy.

Jiminez's avatar

@eponymoushipster – In what way? It’s totally fucking hierarchical. How can you mistake it for anything but?

I agree with Gail, benevolent dictatorship.

Im going to go with Communist Totalitarian: Stalin and Lennin (Ben and Andrew), with their Secret Police force of content moderators out to destroy the free thinking world (PnL, JohnPowell, etc).

Seriously though guys I love you and all the superb moderating you do :)

@shilolo so am I perverted and sick for wanting to see Ben or Andrew dressed in a Queen’s robes?
