Ace1 said was that EB made no comment and just fixed the apparent error.
As Editor Bob liked my post, it was very clear to me that it was not an error. Perhaps Ace only reads my posts if someone reports them!

Seeing you're not a mod yourself, isn't this a big assumption to make?
I'm happy to confirm that olygirl's assumption is 100% correct. MusicChick's only contribution to mod team discussions over the last few months or more has been to attempt to block any moderation of her cronies. For a definition of "her cronies", see the list of members thanking her posts in this thread.

Apart from that, she has been entirely absent from mod team discussions. Additionally, there has been absolutely no input from Editor Bob since before the last mod coup attempt.

You are the claiming to be privy to knowledge of private discussions between the mods.

All I did was call your bluff.
You are claiming MC has denied being absent from mod team discussions despite all the contradictory evidence?
I call your bluff.

To be fair, the vast majority of former mods would have preferred to see her step down and many posters have left because of her.

I know it sounds like mobbing and bullying but I think it’s more a response to a long-standing frustrating situation. Seriously, MC, if you really cared about EF as much as you say you do, you would step down as a mod. It’s time.

Which was three months after the non-error.

I’m not sure anything in this whole debacle is clear in any way shape or form and the fact that Editor Bob is paid to run these forums and is the apparent cause of so much disharmony makes me wonder (again) how suitable he is for this position.

The interesting part is - if mods acknowledged the clear message of our supervisor that explained the 1st round of demodding, they would not feel uninformed or surprised. It is not like that the final demodding was a random brainfart or a coup (nor the 1st one). I have a feeling that the site oversight is not into airing people's dirty laundry.

I believe that this community has a healthy spirit and supportive mindset, wit and humor and is already recovering. People who haven't posted for long are resurfacing.
Perhaps you would care to share "the clear message of our supervisor" to help us overcome our ignorance?

I could have complained to EB earlier, but asked the mod team to sort it out themselves, for some reason they chose to ignore my complaint. I even gave notice that I would escalate my complaint, it fell on deaf ears.

But we agree there was no clear message from MCs supervisor after the last coup?

And people who have posted for a long time are leaving.

You keep mentioning this clear message from your ‘supervisor.’ As far as I can tell EB didn’t give any explanation of what happened last time. Was something said in the mod zone at the time because the last Ace1 said was that EB made no comment and just fixed the apparent error.

Or are you saying that randomly demodding mods and then adding them back without explanation and then liking FMF comment a few months later about what his intentions may have been is a clear message in the land of MusicChick?
Perfectly put.

You could always suggest it gets put to the public vote? Let the EF members decide.

Dupe accounts don't get to vote twice!

I've been gone for 2 years - because (in my view) 2 mods trolled me relentlessly.

Saying that "the vast majority" tried to have her removed doesn't just sound like bullying - it is bullying. She was one of the very few less-than-right-on people on the forum - who questioned the mainstream narrative which frustrated loads of people but many others such as I appreciated.

Referring to posters as "cronies" is just absurd and indicates a level of paranoia . I don't know her nor have I ever met MC. She's an account on a bulletin board nothing more.

Let's correct the dishonesty. Members reached out. Two mods got a warning a while back, through being demodded briefly. There was a clear note from the higher authority telling them to quit modding with a political bias. The warning was ignored, members silenced - so the higher authority decided to step in again.
Absolute 100% garbage. We had no communication whatsoever from any "higher authorities" as to what had been done and why. And since that point no members have "been silenced" by us, indeed one of those who we'd agreed to ban and was resurrected was quite quickly re-banned by EB himself, which perhaps says a lot about how little he'd been paying attention up until that point, and his lack of involvement since then is what's allowed you to perpetrate this coup.

And your own, consistent, refusal, to join in any discussion with us or any of the mod team as to your own role in that debacle, and indeed in this one, is frankly disgusting.

Frankly, you've stabbed us in the back, in a nasty, vindictive and very un-moderate way. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Ah, so that's the story MusicChick has been sharing with her cronies and Editor Bob, is it? Interesting.

Group B or Group C members?

I haven't thanked her posts because I don't know what is going on but if I do thank her, I don't automatically become her or anyone's cronie.

MC could be a nasty person for all I know but some in Group A have been nasty too from what I have observed.

Would you say you are Chuff's cronie for letting him get away with personal insults when others got banned for less? I personally don't mind Chuff's insults as I can easily counter them but as a Mod should same level playing field not be applied?

If you become mod again then please be more self critical and try to be objective even if it involves cronies
