I think you have missed my point entirely.
Before mods came out of the trees and set me straight, I was TRYING to make the point that ElevatedOnes' initial post had a clear preformed opinion
about a post and video that HE HADN'T EVEN WATCHED!
OK? HE WAS PROMOTING
So I'll say it again;
I'm all for Mods posting as members as they moderate the play by play here on ATS
BUT (and maybe I didn't make it clear enough the first time)
If you are a member as well as
a moderator you should be held to a higher standard than the rest of us to a point.
If you have a moderator title, then jump into a board, post a reply that is IMO clearly off base, (BECAUSE HE HADN'T EVEN VIEWED THE OP YET) it reeks
Sure, lots of people on here don't read an entire thread and post a reply with short, uneducated, and short-sighted answers; I was under the
impression though that if you're a moderator you should know better.
Apparently I was wrong.
And to reply to this quote:
We post the same as anyone else when we don't have to moderate the board for YOUR benefit.
Obviously the analogy was cruising at 32 thousand feet over some people's heads.
If you're NOT going to DENY IGNORANCE, then don't wear the BADGE when doing so.
Warn me, ban me, whatever you need (or want) to do.
I'm not here to cause trouble, I just assumed (apparently incorrectly) that seeing a moderator title meant you we're dealing with someone who was
well versed in the motto of ATS.
