Where to discuss such matters is a very difficult question to answer. I have considered the worth of a 'glorantha-off-topic' mailing list to handle all the 'my larps better than your larp' type topics. I'm not convinced there is support for such a list, but if there is, I will organise one.

In my experience, subjects like book burning simply result in flame wars that do little to change anyones opinion, cause much bad feeling and do not give a good impression to the wider community.
