What's NFB?

It if is what I think you might mean (Negative Feedback) then I believe 
"constructive criticism" would be a better term, rather than some 
'eBayism'. I know eBay seems to be taking over the world, but don't help 
them on their way. (If I misunderstand you, please correct me)

But one of the many problems on here is that on a significant number of 
occasions the criticisms are not constructive, but aggressive and personal.

Perhaps (and I think its worth a try), moderation of those who get 
personal would be useful. The argument you use in another post about 
McCarthy bringing down McCarthy just does not seem to be happening.

Just a short (1 day or so) disabling of an account might clean it up a bit.

On many occasions the same arguments appear all the time. Sometimes if 
the arguments could be written on a web page and someone pointed to that 
it would be useful. I tried to do with the RMS power argument.
