Then let him take glee, it is evident that the poor soul has very little opportunity to do so otherwise.
as you wish. I assume people have regularly yanked your chain, IRL and on the web, due to the fact that you will confirm the chain was yanked. You have the power to stop it assuming you want to and/or can.

It is interesting to see the number of people who have never been mods but who nevertheless know everything about modding.
I've been a mod*.

Re: Mod shakeup

Hey, I just realised that now that I'm no longer a mod, I have a big, beautiful, empty Ignore List to furnish at will!

So many dickheads, so little time... where can I start...

What a shame the mods are not only unable to ignore others, but are also unignorable.

Maybe this is a good time to see if it‘s possible to ignore mods. I suppose a message to EB is in order.

Fantastic proof you are not capable of being an objective mod. Thank you for your honesty, apparently EB took the right decision.

are you saying it's not true?
again, a mod cannot have an opinion on people?

EF has more than it's fair share of dickheads, many expats come here, get info, never register and forget about it due to that. You do know it has a reputation? It's nothing special, many forums on the Internet demand a thicker skin.

totally agree, it's laughable how much molly coddling goes on her, and how emo and sensitive people are. i think cos all the tough ones have left (we could do with someone like polorise coming back.) the state of EF now. how i miss longbyt, shell and slaphead as mods.

Nice! It is amazing how much more bearable this place can become once you start using the ignore function. aka The Automatic Bullshit Filter.

It's like putting a virtual muzzle on a belligerent chihuahua.

(No offense to chihuahuas).

I guess when you don't have much to look forward to, you begin to create your own version of expected reality. Unfortunately, I shall have to disappoint you, much as life appears to have done, judging by the level of misanthropy you so frequently exhibit. Welcome to my ignore list, I hope the other forum members are at least a little entertained by the inevitable rant and bile. Rest assured that I am not censuring you, you aren't important enough for that, I am simply bored by the tiresome predictability of your "contributions".
By your own claim you know what others are thinking. As you confirm here.

How is blocking me going to help that?

I gave up bikes after my big smash in 2007, though I've still always felt like a rocker. Did I relinquish my rocker-credibility when I agreed to be a mod then?

Can‘t say they were necessarily objective, but always seemed fair. And effective.

What a load of hogwash. This is something that happens on the forum on a very frequent basis and I am not aware of this 'rule' being implemented before. Compounded by the fact that I cannot add you to my very short ignore list, which I would dearly love to do to save myself from your poorly thought out rambling psychobabble.

Re: Mod shakeup

Well, I’ve just messaged EB to see if ignoring mods is a possibility. So we shall see I guess. We were able to do this for a short time in 2019. yes, i used to be someone else.
