That would be meta-moderation.
I think we need a thread split, with one thread to complain about realmoderation, and one about metamoderation.

If you find yourself really giving that much of a shit about your reputation in an online forum, that's probably a sign that you need to step AWAY from the forum.

only realmoderationists know what realmoderation is.

And metamoderation is the same as astrology or stamp collecting. Totally unrealmoderationologicalistic.

So I can disagree more comfortably.

Hey, you're the moderator.

In America, of course...

Apparently they think that by attempting (but failing) to emulate the French origin of the word, they sound smarter. But that fails to recognise half the story of the origin of the word 'solder'.

I'm just hearing a boston accent every time I try it. I'll just keep soldering on.

I can't read them, but I can see sold has the same root pronunciation as the third solder. Which means the l is still in it?

the 'l' has its usual English sound. In short, pronounced 'solda'
