Most of the AMAs we've had here were a result of one of the owners reaching out to someone they believed the membership would appreciate the
opportunity to interact with and inviting them to come and do an AMA.
We typically try to have some staff monitor those fairly closely to minimize the problems that can arise when you have a well known person available
for conversation. Sometimes people will sign up just to go after a person who has some notoriety. Hard to believe, right? We always strive for
civility, and ask me anything doesn't mean 'I'll answer everything', so there are those who get frustrated with the process. We like for those to be
a good experience for the guest and the members.
Now people who are members are free to start threads (within the confines of the T&C) about whatever they choose. But the AMA format tends to be a
troll magnet for things like, "I'm a werewolf/vampire/alien/time traveler"-type trolling threads where the OP doesn't have the gumption to even start
out with their story. "I'm totally an orc hybrid. Ask me anything". Been there, got the scars , no interest in the nonsense.
Every thread starter is subject to inquiry. There's -0- need for an AMA format for the membership in general.
For the member suggesting it's contrary to the posted rules, I'd invite all to read the
