Re: Mod shakeup

Is there an element of burning bridges going on here?

You're incapable of taking a dispassionate, detached view and will show your biases in no time. You just can't help yourself.
Glass-half-empty type are we? I'll give him the chance to prove himself.

p.s. I still don't know why you were de-modded. Accidental from EB I am guessing?

I think the other factor in the forum is the fact that the internet in general has become more aggressive; anonymity makes some people braver than they'd be in real life. They'll write stuff they'd never say face to face with someone. Passive aggressive is becoming the norm sadly; there's no need for it, but people who do it think they're clever, superior, funny, cool, whatever. What they really are is just pitiful human beings who have nothing better to do.
The forum I used to moderate was a real name only forum, I never banned anybody, just closed a few threads & deleted some unnecessary posts over 8 years.

And on this same thread, you have groaned Ace1 five times so far, and me four times.

This is the point at which one of your delusional cronies should be stepping in and saying "but moderators should be objective! They can't go groaning people!"

I don't think you're going to last long in your glass house, fatmanfilms.

I was not complaining about groans & Ace did make a serious allegation that has been confirmed incorrect yet he refuses to apologise, so I do have something to groan about.

Giving rep or groans I do by the individual post.

You really don't know me, but lets see how it goes. I really don't have any axes to grind.

On the contrary, I say far worse face to face than I do on the internet.

Splendid! Glad to hear it.

What are you going to do about the abusive serial groaners on this thread? It seems a lot like the harrassment you claim happened to you. Surely I don't need to complain to Editor Bob to get justice here?

This is such bullshit , when I do I get to have some cronies ???
Also I remember a certain mod banned me for using the word "C U X X" - despite it being all over the forum beforehand or is "dickhead" somehow magic ? In which case I call sexism.

Thats a difficult one as I was complaining about over moderation, I believe it will calm down over the next few days.

If you report a post, as you know all the moderators are informed. If you ex colleagues in mod zone think you have a point I am sure appropriate action will be taken.

Historically this sort of thread would have been closed long ago, I would rather leave it open as I believe it's the right thing to do, thank you for your understanding.

I wouldn’t worry about groans, they’re the equivalent of a real-life…well, groan. Not more than that. It’s not passing judgement on your character, it’s not a personal insult, it’s just their way of disagreeing with you, or saying that they don’t like your post. That’s OK.

Rejoice in knowing that there are people who do appreciate your work and participation in EF. Some don’t, that’s fine too.

Talk about failing to have any sense whatsoever of perspective!

What a charmer you are.

There's nothing magic about a dick. Despite what some may think.

Most of the worst words in the English language are sexual and are aimed at/about women and you think "dickhead" is beyond the pale? Too funny.

I agree, of course. And of course, that's not the point I was making.

Standards are important. Double standards, doubly so.

I suspect we are remembering things quite differently. Have you? I don't keep track of my greens/reds. Ta, I guess.

Well, it's what you do with it, after all... looks like his can play quite the tune.

Really? I'd be pissed. I referred to a certain member (who fits the definition) using that word. Just got my post deleted.
