You mean again?

In other news V has been unbanned, no idea by whom.
When a mod's data is deleted do their bans also disappear?

This change would not have been due to any recent account deletions. The last person to ban the user in question was EB.

Are you sure about that?

`This. However I believe that the user's thanks and groans disappear.

So if Tom were to leave (random example since he gives lots of both), more than 137,000 combined thanks and groans would disappear in addition to whatever posts he made.

Yawn...

If I were one of the demoted Mods, I would probably leave, too, due to EB's lack of communication and lack of respect for my yrs long contribution. That is really crappy treatment! And I wouldn't judge anyone negatively who leaves in protest.

What this has nothing to do with is FMF's appointment as a Mod. Will every future Mod appointment come under scrutiny if they aren't from "your side?"

WRT to a backroom coup, unless you have information that is not public, then you are only speculating and working yourself into a frenzy.

Not sure what is up with V's reinstatement, but not really a big deal as we ALL know that many banned/flounced members have come back under new UserNames. I actually find it kind of amusing to try and guess who some of these folks are. And we all can use the IGNORE function to make them disappear from our feeds again.

My suggestion to people who are angry about current events is that they spend less time in the Off Topic section and go back to helping each other in the core sections of EF... kind of like volunteering in a soup kitchen!

Summer is here and I am looking forward to taking July off from work and EF.
Yawn....nobody is angry I think, it's a deja-vu. It seems disingenuous to keep telling "the other side" not to make a big deal out of it, while some of you obviously made a big deal out of it.

I agree with the last sentence though.

Enjoy your summer and time off from work and EF, this is, I guess, what we all need here.

Edit> using Ignore function is possible only for normal users not mods. And some folks here feel so left out when added on someone's ignore list, despite their apparent dislike, and keep moaning, so I doubt that is very efficient. Probably just not visiting this site anymore for a while will give us a more realistic perspective.
