Re: Mod shakeup

I've got a great idea.

Why don't we have 7 mods who have to discuss everything between themselves and present a united front:

2 Hard right wing agarian Musicchickites
2 woke lefties
2 liberals who hate taxes
1 dull Catholic centrist

When this thread has run its course and everyone has said their piece, which the mods are clearly allowing everyone to do otherwise there would have already been many bannings, then I think it's clear that the iron rod will be out in force and the most vocal dissent quashed quickly and quietly, likely with extended-but-not-quite-permanent bans.
FYI, if you get a permanent ban, I will fight for you and start a petition, might even print pamphlets. Obviously, the agreed deal is that you have to come back as "The soiled mattress guy" Just pulling your leg, relax.

However, for a normal user to have to point out to a mod that they have crossed the line is odd.
That is exactly what some members are saying about the other Mods actions too. Do you see their point too, or just obsessed with your vendetta against Virgin Witch MC?

Neither of the people you mention have followed people around the forum with the sole purpose of antagonising them - as far as I know.
Exactly, once you permanently ban someone you don't have to follow them

Go for it.

If you think you can gain any kudos from trawling through ten years of mod discussions and selectively making bits of it public then I think you're sadly mistaken.
I just wish to satisfy MYSELF that the action was justified. It did seem harsh & I did not mention 22 yards in my complaint, so I was genuinely interested in the back story.

I still believe you owe me an apology, thanking you in anticipation.

Re: Mod shakeup

Sounds like a lot of people on here want a balanced forum, as long as it's balanced in their favour.

I'm looking forward to the inquisition on FMF's first banning order.

Here's an interesting thing. say a long time user of this forum lost their password - oops. You'd expect them to use the "send me a password reset please" link to get a new password request.

Well, darn and gosh it, if you DO that, then it sends you the link about six hours later and when that happens, banga de boosh, its too late, the link doesn't work!!

So you can have someone who's been on the forum for maybe 10 years or more who's account goes awol because they can't reset their password and arent going to go through all the faff of emailing editor bob n all that.

instead they start again with a relatively new account, meaning they still get to enjoy this forum but the user is effectively tombstoned.

Just use "forgot password" again

Recently, I intentionally deleted my password from the browser's saved passwords, so I could quietly stop posting here. I think I stayed away 2 months, but I got emails about EF PMs (people asking about my welfare). I did not have the heart to ignore them, so I logged back in using the "forgot password" option. Worked instantly for me.

As TC & FMF demonstrated one must simply complain to EB to fix it.

Not so sure, both whether it is now fixed or whether complaining about it fixes anything!
