Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

I have it on good authority that a new Facebook group for UK Catholic organists, choirs and cantors was NOT set up to compete with this forum, but rather to give such musicians a presence/platform on Facebook. If anyone is interested, do consider joining... https://www.facebook.com/groups/2321504161435196/
This group began less than a month ago, set up by Andrew Butler of Tenterden, Kent. It does seem to have a slightly different flavour from the SSG forum. One reason for that could be that the group appears to include a significant proportion of organists who are not Catholic but who are playing in Catholic churches.
Absolutely - it was not intended to compete with this forum in any way. What SC said has turned out to be the case; I hope this cross fertilization will be useful all round. I also intended it to be primarily for Organists (and singers). There was an attempt some 20 years ago to start up a Catholic Organ Forum as an organisation, but it came to bought for some reason. (I have now blown my own cover! It was "Hare" who formed the group!)

On the contrary! Re Moderation, I monitor every post and have within the last couple of days removed a topic, turned off Commenting on another, and removed a member. Not all Facebook groups are moderated well, but a great many are - and very well.
