Maybe you should go back to the grapevine, you know, the place where you took your former self to and remain there, nicely tucked in and don't bother further disseminating your vitriol on these here premises.
Drama queens with boring lives need an audience, it's not as if they would ever argue with their leftie friends so the need to come back to troll here.

Vitriol? That's a big word. Disseminating too.

Then you may soar far, far away from the EF, until you can conduct yourself in a manner, which doesn't cause discordance within the community.

Are you going to ban all the deleted members who come back under a new identity? There are many of them and it is not forbidden within the rules of the forum. They weren’t banned originally so there is nothing to stop them from coming back.
It’s not a duplicate account if the original account no longer exists.

The reason for the ban is clear.

I ban everybody who's only here to incite nonsense. If the forum is such a terrible place, why come back and bicker about it in the first place? Was there a sign saying "under new management" somewhere that I've missed? Why would they expect it to be any different from a couple of months ago beats me.

Furthermore, your previous comment is incorrect and uncalled for and I'm not going to justify any rep number, not that it matters anyways.

I have no idea who they were but I don’t think those comments were banworthy personally. There has been much worse stuff going on during your absence, maybe you could try catching up on that before going in all gung ho with your ban stick?

I don’t give a stuff about your rep numbers but you might want to clarify the issue with your fellow mods.
Ace1 confirmed a few months ago that jrspet did indeed increase MC’s rep score by IIRC 100 points. I don’t give a stuff about that either but don’t try to deny something that has already been confirmed.

Re: How we love our mods

I would suggest that the comment regarding inflated rep does not come from a place of nastiness but bafflement. If a person who has quite often dished out some pretty nasty comments themselves enjoys such reverence and is even a mod, it may not sit well with those who disagree with how they conduct themselves. In my view, mods should be characterised by taking a fair and balanced view while not inciting the discord that you don't want here themselves.

Hopefully, my wording is sufficiently diplomatic to avoid getting into trouble.

This is a community??

Why does anyone give a toss about reputation or thanks or groans? (Apart from millenial snowflakes of course).

Yes, it is and if you don't feel that way then it isn't the right community for you.

Although I am with you on the rep/thanks/groans. Who gives a toss.

You’re right. You don’t care about the points. You, and a few others however, never pass on an opportunity to get a dig in on MC and the title of this thread was another watering hole for the pack of hysterical hyenas to gather.

But you guys are wonderful and only want EF to return to the happy, inclusive, space it used to be. Except for you, and you, and you, and...

I did not dig in on MC, it wasn’t her fault if one of the other mods decided to spontaneously up her rep points and she can’t be blamed for that.
I was just pointing out the facts as confirmed by Ace previously.

As for the other stuff, if she behaved sensibly and owned her mistakes maybe she wouldn’t get so much flack. You can’t post provocatively and not expect to get a reaction for it. Any other poster doing that would get exactly the same treatment from me.

Re: How we love our mods

Feeling a bit thwarted. Wanted to thank NickTuesday for using the expression “jiggery pokery” – simply because I haven’t heard it in years – only to find him banned. Now as a newbie, I get that there’s lots of old history which I’m blissfully unaware of, quite a few “guests” with heaps of old posts and quite a few users recently banned.

Don’t want to act naïve but I do get the impression that often umbrage is easily taken by some folks. If you think a remark is bit snide, ignore it or pay back in kind. Wouldn’t consider myself a very confrontational person but sometimes it helps. Doesn’t have to descend into a shouting match.

I do think it’s a bit disingenuous to allow a thread discussing statistics of mods and then chuck a user who has issues about them.

It's a woman, Nicky, one of my favourite ex-posters a teacher
Amazingly the occupation with the most flouncers was that of teacher, the majority of whom have returned. The moral of the story is you can never stop learning on EF

Welcome back, Rufus. Just confirming that of course it's perfectly OK to have a self-deleted poster return to open a new account, especially if it's under a very similar name so there is no doubt who it is.

As long as members stick to the rules, naturally they're always welcome here. And last I heard, complaining about improper actions or unfairness is not outside the rules.
