Personally I think Ace1 and 22Yards will make excellent trolls when they respawn, and should give FMF a run for his money.
Ace1 hasn't got the balls (or wit) without the mod powers of 1. banning 2. multiple red blob attacks 3. Derailing threads

I think it's very sad if they leave, I see Ace has deleted his posts in this thread that makes me think he may stay, I sincerely hope he does stay.

Cool, can we have personal attacks now?

On the subject of wit, do you ever worry that you don't have any whatsoever?

Not using 1 and 2 doesn't make one a proper mod. Just saying.

Re: Another one bites the dust...

This isn't intended to offend anyone here, but you really can't blame anyone for leaving this place or for taking a long break from it... It's amazing how much more peaceful your life feels (and how much more time there is in a day) the less you engage in "online warfare."

Maybe, but knocking someone when they are down after years of service does strike me as a bit off - especially in a cowardly way on an online forum but whatever, it takes all sorts.

And if it's impartial moderators that people want then at least one more needs to step down.

If you want impartial moderators, get robots or use AI. And that’s only as good as the programming.

Oh, I agree. But from what I've seen, there are few (if any) people here who are willing to acknowledge or admit to any wrongdoing, so it just goes back and forth, endlessly. There are some people here who 'get off' on provoking others -- and often in a passive-aggressive way because I guess that makes it easier for them to get away with it -- and who seem to invest their egos too much in this place. I can only hope that whoever it is that deleted their accounts will feel more at peace due to leaving.

Exactly, nobody is completely impartial but some are more so than others.

Mine is very peaceful anyway. This site is addictive - in a very weird way lately -, I agree it's better to either take a break or just don't post anything. Just watch the drama unfold. Or not, it's depressing.
