The reason I see is that of the retention of the few clergy who are already here. Everyone’s posts do not have equal weight, and I would give the members of the clergy a longer leash before I would flag anything from them.
This site is being overrun by teenagers and twenty somethings who have zero life experience. They show the most shallow understanding of Catholicism and they bludgeon anyone who doesn’t hold to their understanding of any particular issue. Most if not all of them identify as “traditionalists”. The current issue on CAF boils down to young, ill mannered, immature posters (much the same as the ones in Europe who are crashing the Lutheran commemoration services) with nothing to do but post from their parent’s basement.
Most of the time I wonder if some of the clergy or older posters realize they are having a theological argument with a teenager.
