Who says I don't like the place? And why would I not come back just because of some BS banning? You don't get to shut me up.

You idiots will squabble so much this thread will be closed before we get a decent answer.


Actually no. See the problem here is that this thread was started by someone who is a genuinely caring member who was clearly distressed about something. Unfortunately it got crapped on by the usual crew who aren't interested in an answer but rather an opportunity to rail against the staff.

You want answers? I'll prep a thread when I get home from work about what moderator accounts can and can't do. The false accusations, while often funny, have gotten a bit out of hand at this point and have become insulting.

I'll be happy to clarify the roles/responsibilities/tools of our staff in a proper setting. There is nothing to hide. Folks want transparency? No problem. It's funny in a sense because of all our moderators were regular members first anyway.

I have no problem engaging with people who are genuinely interested in an answer. My time, however, will not be wasted on those just passing the time away by lying and attempting to drag our name through the mud.

I equate respecting something with liking something. You obviously, as it has been revealed, have an issue with respecting the rules so therefore you do not like the site.


And why would I not come back just because of some BS banning?


VPN all you want, it's your time.


You don't get to shut me up.


No, I am not a mod. Dealing with tedious people like yourself is why I probably would not want to be one either.

So can one single mod influence the forums by giving multiple stars or not? Djarums?

I'd probably address your questions if you promise to never call me "big boy" again.

That was creepy. I don't get paid enough.

Thanks erik!

I read the OP and then scrolled through to find a mods response.

Makes sense.

Thanks for the job you guys do, mods have always been fair and pleasant to me.

I couldn't and wouldn't do your job but I am glad you guys do.

Can you provide some detail on your 401K and health coverage plans?

it's your time.


What is this "time"drivel? I spend just as much time as you or whoever.




No, I am not a mod.


You don't say. I was speaking in general.

Ooh, butthurt huh. There is no problem for mods if they treat people fairly.

Well I for one have only contributed in the thread for amusement.
You mods do a decent job, I click alert and in seconds y'all remove whatever is bad....and I assume because I push the rules so often myself that you guys think 'Oh it must be bad if grainofsand is alerting it'.

I never alert people I'm enjoying arguing with, that would be lame, but I alert plenty when I see hate, or topics I wish to discuss but I know break T's and C's and I'm checking I can reply seeing as they don't seem to have closed the thread.
(Mods know what I'm on about lol)

Excellent modding here I reckon, just like my favourite clubs with decent bouncers...they ain't saints but it would be #ing carnage without them...and we all know it.

Not surprised it makes no sense to you by your past behavior. You seem to have an overly entitled stance on how you should behave here.

I have one account. I set it up years ago. If you are creating new ones as has been discussed then you are obviously using more time than I am. This is rather simplistic in its overview, not sure why it went over your head.

No, I was speaking in general. Tedious people are boring, I do not like to be bored, therefore being a moderator and dealing with tedious people would bore me. You are actions are a snooze fest.

Jealousy? P***s envy?


Please.

No, you see, I am not pathetic....

The moment that a lot of people here like me is the moment that I have sold out and have become a brownnose poser.


Actually, given some of the stuff you've said so far? You actually are kinda pathetic. ...and a bit of a poser, as well. Well done.

Me liking this place has no reltion to the T&C whatsoever. Your claim is just drivel.

More drivel. We are talking minutes here.....




No, I was speaking in general.


You said "tedious people like yourself". That's not in general at all.

If someone is paying me, at least *I* have a job. You could get one too - now that school's out.

He said "I don't get paid enough" and then I asked a question. As usual your response doesn't apply.
