Can I be a mod now too?

Nope, if you confuse the "ban for ever button" with the groan button, EF will be empty within a week.

Re: Mod shakeup

I guess I don't really understand why anyone would WANT to be a mod here, in the first place. Doesn't that require a lot of time, and time that you are not paid for?

I stopped being very active on the EF months ago because I was tired of all the bad vibes here and the constant arguing. It's funny how the less you use this place, the less you give a shit about it.

From my perspective, at least, I think that anyone who isn't a mod should consider themselves fortunate, because that means they'll have more time to actually enjoy their life.

Sorry to be so honest.

For other's info, this is part of long-standing feud between FMF and another member where he consistently attempts to wind her up with accusations based on something completely unrelated to current topics. This is why he was given an infraction.

The great thing about infractions the post & reason is linked.
This post was a 'personal attack'

Re: Mod shakeup

In my opinion the whole mod team needed a complete overhaul but this was not the way to do it.

Editor Bob is clearly not really paying attention to the forum at all anymore.

Yes, I saw a 'thanks' on one of my posts is now anonymous. Not any of the pre-existing mods who could theoretically self-delete, so that means that EB must be active if he's been able to process a deletion request so quickly. Will he stand up and be counted on this thread, to explain his actions, I wonder?

My comment on the infaction was
Far as I'm aware these aren't visible to anyone except the moderator who issues it and the recipient which makes them private. As such it shouldn't be posted publicly no matter what arguments you may have with the moderator who issued it.

Great start to being a moderator FMF - and you should know better Ace1. No wonder the mod team is falling apart.

I was asking for permission & got it. I don't see any issue at all.

maybe everybody should calm down a bit and see how things go. i think fmf will be a good mod and provide some balance to the mod team. it's good to have a mix of differing views.

not to mention that fmf has provided a lot of valuable contributions over the years on EF on a variety of topics including investment, pensions etc. that have helped a lot of people.

and remember, instead of fmf, you could have gotten Tom for a mod
