This is pure speculation, but it could have been an ex mod threatening to leave unless V was re-banned. Such a mod is no longer a mod and V was then reinstated.
That makes perfect sense, nobody is admitting to the dirty dead so it must be EB

Personally I don't like anyone getting banned, atleast not for difference of opinion.

Why not unban Omtatsat while we're at it...

Really, why not? What’s not to like with a grumpy Aussie? I’ve repeatedly tried to evaluate (last post/last straw) what gets the mods de jour to ban users and failed. Is the last straw deleted?

Perhaps I generally don’t understand what is considered trolling and will find out when the mods wave their magical pink wand at me…

OK, did a bit of searching and it looks like FMF didn't know about it either.

In the meantime, I have since found out Roegner and 3Wishes lost their mod rights too. How can this be?? I am genuinely sad to hear this. I thought it was just 22yards and Ace1, which was hard enough.

I didn't want to continue this discussion, but this is just too much man.
Where can you see mod rights?

Nothing about that here:

If I have to deal with the amount of targeted trolling from this person again, I will simply leave this forum for good among the others who have departed recently.
If you enjoy at least part of this forum, just set the user that rubs you the wrong way to “ignore”. I did that with 2 users whose opinions irked me to no end, and I pretty much forgot they even exist.

Run that by me again?

EB seems to be the Lord of half things. Puts mods off work yet leaves them on the super mod list. I'm not impressed, yet I'm beginning to believe EB is not a person but a job description. In Swedish for a single-language-English-bloke maybe? Or it's an unpaid job too.

In the mean time V__ is back and gets his own welcome-back thread? Fair enough, welcome back V__.

EB is XXXXX, AFAIK. He is very selective in his responses and when he deigns to do so his tone is... particular, shall we say.

I couple of days ago you said, you said you had previously asked him to delete all your info under GDPR, based on that I can't think he would bother to reply as he complied with your wishes at the time.

If prats and idiots were banned, I'm sure we'll all agree that this would be a very quiet place.

Re: V__ is back - thanks mods!

These EF politics confuse the hell out of me. Do you actually know each other? Do you follow who is mod and who is banned? Does EB exist? Are the mods like the Jedi? Is EB Yoda? Or is he Q?

I am seriously lost, but happily retreat to my state of ignorance.

Your join date is February 2020, I guess Editor Bob is more interested in posters that have been loyal members for many years. If he does realise you asked to delete your previous profile a few months before you rejoined, he would realise that you are never going to be happy with how the forum is run.

You can't please everybody all the time unfortunately, we are doing our best to accommodate anyone who wishes to be a member.

Historically there were a lot of meet ups, days out, meals etc so long term posters are likely to have met many members in real life.

Sorry to disagree. We have several people who self deleted and came back, several reincarnations recently and some banned users who were unbanned only recently by the same person who banned them.

With Ennui, as an example, I am happy that she is back.

No, we cannot please everyone and that will never be possible. People‘s opinions differ too much.
