I agree, we finally need a big boy in here. You don't have a real job then, right? Obviously there's no problem for you to sacrifice the neccessary hours each day to do THE job.

Have you asked the administration? ...surely they want at least one good sh*t. http://www.onpoi.net/ah/pics/users/ah_222_1075197944.gif

So are you saying that you would like to be able to ban people who make ignorant statements? Wow, there'd be almost nobody left. We've all made statements that somebody else has considered ignorant.

What I don't get is why some of you take everything that's typed here as a personal affront when everyone is entitled to an opinion, even if it's wrong, ignorant or simply misguided.

Rock & Tully do well enough but you can't expect them to ban people left and right if they don't break the rules which can be quite subjective I'll admit. But it's better than having a loose cannon banning people they don't happen to agree with or because their feelings got hurt.

It can't be an easy job, you are having to balance the pro's and con's and judge each post on it's merits....

You are having to try to act impartially, knowing that whatever you do, you are never going to please everyone all of the time, there will always be the disgruntled, as in life, in anything done by others.
To top it all, unlike the rest of us that can pick and choose the subjects we choose read here, they have to read them all, no matter how banal they may be, and all for no reward, far from giving them grief, i think we all should thank them, after all not only do the moderate, they also do try to help people out that post on here with various problems..........................

This was meant as a sarcastic complaint about the rude posts not really a jab at the mods.

I would still like to be a mod just think of all the appreciative forumn members, money and women.

IMO the mods here don't have itchy trigger fingers (lucky for us) but they do take action when necessary. If you want to keep pushing their buttons, go ahead. We'll sit back and observe the banhammer in action.

I quess you did not read the quote above this one?

Chuck_Older
02-20-2004, 02:36 PM
that was your own quote, Rhett. You quoted yourself. I don't get it. Are you saying that since you quoted yourself saying a self-editted four-letter word, you should be reprimanded?

I think you're missing the point of what OC just posted, and I agree with him 100%.

With all respect, rett69, you've been around here longer than I have and you must know that the mods are doing a lot of work behind the scenes. For a personal example, I've had a thread deleted and they took the time (in a PT) to explain in detail why it was deleted. I've also been warned (without heavy-handedness) about spamming the forum.

When someone gets banned, it's obvious to everyone that the mods have taken action. But from what I've observed, it's not a knee-jerk reaction but it happened when someone kept pushing the wrong buttons and ignored the warning signals.

Your post is no doubt tongue-in-cheek, but seriously, you want to be a mod? Knowing that you're accepted by your peers is a basic human need but you wont feel accepted as a mod. Every time you take action, you will criticised by the very community you're trying to defend.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif ... had another look and you DID say something similar. That's what happens when you get old, you repeat what someone else just said and you think it was your own idea http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif But then again, sometimes it's necessary to repeat things so they sink in ... hopefully.

A mod with a cache of pics to prop himself up

So typical of forum regulars who have no character.

Steve_v did it according to the book.

By the way, when you are stumped and don't have anything to say, just call 'em a troll! works every time (for the ego)<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

How can you talk of character when you have none yourself,if you are even half a man you would not hide behind a new name.your acting like a spoiled child goodn1ight

rett69 I think I understand the intent of your post better now. Your first post did give the impression of a mod-basher's revival until the facts surfaced about that lonely man in a hotel room.

As an aviation buff, it's been a great ride learning from all those who contribute in a positive way to this community. We'll always have "wankers" among us whose only intent is to tear the community down but sometimes it's not easy to just watch them do their dirty work without making any comment.

Peace between us.
