"Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, mods you can move this if necessary" ?
It does annoy me even though i know people are just trying to be polite and respectful. It comes off as bowing, or even cowering, to authority (sorry
sir it wont happen again sir! oh thank you sir, may i have another?) and the mods dont need permission to do their job. the mods are gonna do what the
mods are gonna do. whether you give your approval or not. maybe its a psychological thing where people feel like their ego or reputation is less
damaged by a forum move if they show that they were a part of the decision making process. its not a "punishment" its a cooperative action agreed
upon by all parties involved. Of course, it never was a punishment to begin with, but perhaps some people may percieve it that way? hence their
preemptive statement declaring they are already "on board" in a sense, with any actions taken by the moderation crew to move their thread. Almost a
"you cant fire me, i quit!" mentality. You wanna move my thread? Aha! I already beat you to the jump!
Anyway, I've gotten used to it so i hardly even notice it anymore. Why do i even think about things like this??
