“When we deny ignorance, we must deny it in all parts of our lives. I feel I am simply helping stop the flood of ignorance on this board when I
It must be hard for you to have to read so many ignorant posts and an even greater burden, as a self appointed moderator, to be tasked with holding
back the flood gates of drivel you are forced to read. Your effort is one of the noblest acts of self sacrifice I’ve seen for quite some time.
Especially so when you have to read about subjects in which you have no interest. It reminds me of the spirit of charity that the icon of Santa
Clause has come to embody.
“I know people are welcome to their opinions, and whether or not they believe in Santa Claus, but we don't need to hear it, ladies and gentlemen!
Just because I had bloody stool the other day and I think that because of it, the world is going to end, doesn't mean I need to post it on this
board. Keep your personal life to yourselves people! Unless it truly helps prove a point, then leave it out!”
Ok everybody please keep in mind when you post that while you are entitled to your opinions Kompactor has charitably agreed to read your posts and he
is not interested in reading about your personal life as it may or may not pertain to the subject. He is only interested if you discuss other
people’s experiences. Think of Kompactors burden and in the spirit of Christmas remember that it is better to give than to receive and by give I
mean shut up.
“This thread started as an annoyance, and continues to be one. I know I do not help it's disappearance by continuing to post, but there are many
others out there just like this! They suck up space on this virtual forum! Making it hard for members truly wanting to learn something, to learn
something! I hope this message is spread: Don't make useless posts or replies. It is said often enough by the administrators and moderators, please
listen to them. It gets so annoying when people spout off their big, gaping mouths just because they can.”
I agree whole heartedly but confess that my mouth has fallen open in what could only be described as a gape while reading this thread. Sorry. If only
the real moderators were as intelligent and diligent as you they would know how annoying this thread is, sigh. I agree it would be useless for anyone
to argue with your impeccable logic and I also hope your message is spread far and wide. I hope those lazy real moderators see your post and take
immediate action. I so detest trolls don’t you? Your tolerance and forbearance in this matter shows me that while Santa Clause embodies the spirit
of the holidays he apparently dwells in you year round. This thought gives me hope in a world that so often seems to be indifferent to the needs of
“Here is a perfect example of what I speak of! Many of the first replies are utterly useless! Although they might make you chuckle for half a second
at first, it gets annoying when you have to scroll down the page for five minutes to look for anything, ANYTHING, relevant! It is getting out of hand
people, so do your best to deny ignorance, stupidity, and a bad sense of when not to post.”
Yes some people are gumming up the works for the really intelligent people. If only they could see how stupid they sound. I have also noticed that the
timing of many people’s posts is way off. I always try to post at exactly the right time.
No it is I who should be thanking you. I’ve often thought that the terms please and thank you and the little courtesies we pay each other out of
mutual respect are fundamental to congenial society. I thank you for your congenial efforts at improving the content of this thread. Your efforts are
magnanimous and deserve recognition just as the spirit of Santa that dwells in the hearts of ignorant people everywhere deserves to be recognized
