Since I have no clue what the reason for the ban was I have no opinion about it being fair or not.

Why was he banned?
Apparently because other members ganged up on MusicChick

Re: JagWaugh is INNOCENT!

I don't understand what just happened.

Who is upset? MC? But she isn't banned, JW is.

Funny that Ace1 closed the conversation about Ace1 thread.
At least he did not delete the thread. When I pulled up 22 yards in March he deleted my post even through the post had received thanks & positive rep.

Re: JagWaugh is INNOCENT!

He made the comment, that much is clear, so he is not totally innocent in all of this.
On the other hand I donít think a ban was warranted in this case and it was a complete overreaction on the part of the mod concerned.

If this whole debacle has taught us anything itís that there needs to be clear guidelines about how the mods operate. A mod should not take action about something that affects them personally, they should pass it over to one of the other mods for them to deal with.

He should be unbanned but should not be given a cannon, loose or, er, unloose.

I thought he already had a cannon, that's what his wife told me anyway

Indeed, there needs to be a clear code of conduct, not just for mods, but for all of us. The Forum Rules one is not being adhered to and is far too vague and open to mods' personal prejudices.

Not sure that thanks and rep are valid. I have no doubt someone could post a horrific thread on race y being bad or sexuality z being abhorrent and get enough likes and positive rep from likeminded Neanderthals.

Re: JagWaugh is INNOCENT!

Sorry but I still see a bit of bullying going on. There are rules already in place and they were overstepped by a poster. Mods aren't perfect and I, for one, am grateful for their volunteer work.

I don't think asking for transparency and accountability is bullying. You may disagree, that's fine, it's an internet forum after all.

DB - You know I love you, and all, but as I said earlier, it is now just piling on and the lines have been drawn in the usual way.

Do we really have nothing better to do?

We, the undersigned, think JagWaugh, a valued and well-loved member of EF, was wrongly and unfairly banned, and demand that he be reinstated without delay. Perhaps even promoted to moderator. The mod team needs more people who can handle a socket wrench and fewer loose cannons.

As we all are olygirl. I was the one that started the post about MC for making uneccessary and unfair digs at posters in threads. She has been doing that for quite a while. Each time I ask her, in whatever thread, why she never answers. There were no insults in my posts to her. We all need to keep it clean.. and I wanted to know why she isn't?

She apologised, but then went on to ban JW.. which carried the whole thread forward.

So yeah.. makes little sense. The ban needs to be lifted. We all need to be accountable. Not just some of us.

It seems not. MC has updated the other thread with a mea culpa, so all good I think. I presume Jag has been unbanned because of it, so we can all get on with our lives, being outraged at Brexit and drinking G&Ts.

Re: JagWaugh is INNOCENT!

Pretty sure that is not the bullying olygirl is talking about. If this entire debacle were ONLY about "asking for transparency and accountability" then you might have a point. Clearly, that is not the case...

Yeah, let the Brits go back to politician bashing, they (their politicians) can take it so much better
