No, I wouldn't. I've been active on this board for 15 years and there has never been this much active bullying as now.
I see much less bullying (and still mostly from people supported by previous mods) and discussions are much more polite. I think your view is very subjective.

olygirl, so you see this is where you are wrong at.

Instead of counting likes and keeping a log file about who liked who.. you should have noticed by now how no mod is sending you threats, deletes your posts , none of us here insult you or report you

I mean if you are not starting these talks (over and over) with your frustration about MC and then to dramatize you add me in the formula no one would notice you or me
1) I do not keep a log file so please stop writing untruths
2) I have been asked by LiB to cool it.
3) I have been quiet about MC. It's others like you who keep bringing her up.
4) Just see the latest meet up thread as an example of being disrespectful.

@FMF, so what is going on? Bob seemed to have said on Reddit that they would take the accusation seriously, would look into it and report back. I am not on Reddit and don't care about the article, but given the developments here with an apparent mismatch between the claimed "tolerance" culture and a good number of questionable bans in the last 48 hours - maybe some form of statement would be warranted.
Admin did log in yesterday, so presumably have taken a look.

Because of LiB's actions and remarks towards me. Otherwise I wouldn't feel this way at all.
If a thread becomes ‘toxic’ then perhaps just avoid it?

Sorry, but just no. Look at people like Tony Clifton, Loz and others who were always perfectly polite and never bullied anybody but who were constantly hounded by a certain group of very nasty posters who enjoyed a special level of mod protection. That was the regime the old mods created or at least tolerated.

That's what leads to a sour atmosphere and an unpleasant forum.

Ok, I'm not accusing you of having been part of that group, but surely you must have noticed it was happening? Do yo really want that to come back?

One unpleasant thing you do keep on doing is going after MC and finding fault with her if she does one thing and then finding fault again if she does the complete opposite. I don't know what happened between you two, but wouldn't it be nice to leave whatever it was in the past and leave personal stuff off the forum?

And then spend that time discussing interesting stuff?
Hypocrisy
Your request to "leave personal stuff off the forum" but also post "One unpleasant thing you do" and "group of very nasty posters".

Although I didn't wish her banned she was constantly aggressive and rarely seemed to get out of fight mode. I was getting a bit tired of it. I got a weird PM from her after I went out of my way to be nice and tried to build a bridge and decided to keep well away after that.

Someone who, at present, sets out to see the worst in people and make enemies rather than observe and see the best in people. Her previous incarnation was miles better (predates me but I've read some historical stuff). I think we would have gotten in better were I here earlier.

It rather annoys me as she's obviously really sharp and could be an asset if she put her mind to it.
I could not see anything in her posts in this thread yesterday that would have warranted a ban. At all. But hey, tolerance.

2 bans had been approved several weeks ago, just had not been implemented due to extended tolerance. I believe that info had leaked from modzone as one of the posters had suddenly started behaving better, then reverted, hence the ban.

"info had leaked from modzone"? Why not just a simple warning in the interests of transparency, good relations, and a friendly atmosphere.?

You make the modzone sound like the Politburo

More and more I actually picture it like the complaints helpline of a retail store. Everyone complains about everything and the mods have to go through tons of crap. But yes, the image of politburo is visually more appealing

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Oh dear! I seem to have missed the latest bun fight at the vicarage and the discussion is flagging badly by now. How about a side topic while the opponents refill on venom?

How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

I say only four – less, if that fat one joins in again

Awkward and intransparent, in my view.

So if I understand correctly, you somehow put people on probation, or "extended tolerance" as you call it. Without them knowing they have been booked with a yellow card. Then they get banned for something that alone would never have caused a ban. This creates the impression that people get banned for nothing, different standards apply and generally no one knows where the mods draw the line.

I am sorry but it's more like a teachers' lounge. Yes, loads of complaints. Parents, kids, all.

And



Why do people who haven't experienced politburos always talk about it, btw?

And talk about living in a facist state or a dictatorship while living in one of the freest countries in the world.

I put it down to ignorance, stupidity and a visceral dislike of not getting their own way.

Tbh, I also didn't experience it. I was too young to become a member by the time it disappeared, sadly. Otherwise, I am sure I would have made a fantastic politburo member! As they say "if you keep quiet here, we might promote you to be quiet somewhere else"

Is LostInBanning evil?

I think not, we generally get on well, but he has even banned me once or twice!
