This really made me Laugh Out Loud..

I thought the answer would be fucking/freaking obvious...

They have banned all the interesting characters in the interest of making it as sterile as a ship of fools..


Even the few "dissidents" they allow are keep under strict control..

The forum is floundering, just because they are trying to keep it too exclusive...

The simple answer is: "Stop Banning those who disagree with you"!

It's definately their forum now.

It isn't run for the benefit of the membership any more.

If it was they wouldn't feel the need to suspend people for long periods in order to hush up a blatant abuse of trust by one of their own.

One thing I don't 'get' is the need to lock a thread because 'it's run its course'.  In that case just let it naturally die . . . and if it diverts and goes off topic then still it's no good reason to lock it.

I wonder who's going to tell Jimmy that all comments about moderation have to be made in secret by pm?

Will he have his posts deleted and be suspended for discussing moderation in a post?


EDIT: I see Syrup and OK have decided that discretion is the better part of valour in this instance then.

EDIT2: Eeek! They're all discussing moderation now. Don't they realise that the consequence of discussing R&E moderation on the R&E board is the end of civilisation as we know it?

How much of that is residual from the BBC though?
How many new members is that board attracting who have no connection to the BBC boards or existing members?
Most of the new names that have appeared under Latest Member on the front page in the last few months appear to have been blocked by the moderators indicating that they are unlikely to be 'new' members at all.
It has been recognised that R&E is becoming moribund (hence the thread that we are commenting on here) but unfortunately this is the fate of internet messageboards that are not connected to a site that will attract new people.
In a couple of years R&E will be as quiet as this board but it will be worse than this board as it will be just a clique of DJW and his mates.

All forums have their day and yes it is quite possible that R&E will fall by the wayside too eventually. This forum used to be very vibrant when it first started but sadly withered on the vine, so to speak. I can think of a quite a number of forums which did really well for a while, then fell out of favour.

I don't know if anyone here ever posted on Beliefnet, an American religious forum? It was one of the leading forums of its type a few years ago, even getting awards. Now it is a shadow of its former self.

Your 'offence', if I recall correctly, was to respond to a moderator using the same term that this moderator had previously used.

For this you receive a permanant ban.

So there is no reason to presume that R&E (being only a year old and having benefitted from a large initial mambership as a result of the closure of the BBC boards) is attracting more traffic than other boards because it is doing "something right" that these other boards are not, despite your claim to the contrary.

Quote:

I was referring to her in the message above! , which together with the other emoticons she used indicatated a high level of ... ahem ..... irritation.

Anyway a quick dekko at the closed posts over there and it would seem she's referring to  ad-o's prayer thread.  We don't know what went on behind the scenes (maybe ad-o himself requested the closure? He did say in one of his posts that he 'wished he hadn't said anything now') but on the face of it it looks like the mod in question has been high handed (as per usual) as I would have thought that if ad-o had asked for it's closure OK could have made that clear.

If ad-o hadn't requested the closure, and already being low spirited, I can't imagine he'll be too chuffed when he finds out.

Yes, agree, I suppose it is mean to think somebody is a prat.  But if it habitually acts like a prat, talks like a prat, walks like a prat,  smells like a prat - it's probably a prat.  

Prattery causes people to comment and/or react.  It was ever thus.

Gotta love the prats, innit though.

I am probably being thick, but who is the object of the collective ire, I haven't worked it out?

Hello Willow,
I think they are talking about the one who dresses in a stupid little witch cape. You know the goose stepping shrink/hypnotist/high priest/ bald old man.
I went over and read that thread. I honestly think Oak shut it down out of pure jealousy. People were helping ad-o and cheering him up. Oak might feel that he would not get that from others? And he just might be right.lol
IvyOwl

The thing is Floo if people feel they've been unjustly treated they need an outlet to voice it if it's being stifled. At the moment it seems to be this forum providing said outlet for stuff over on R&E.

However this forum does still have other discussions going on it's not just about the ire overspill! This place has been ticking over for ages and you never know it might pick up one day. I spend time here for a bit and then wander off for months as my attention is taken elesewhere in real life land and then come back again.

I like Oak King.

Unjustly I have been accused of being a MOD sucker upper, this isn't the case. I rarely complain to the MODS when I believe myself wronged, although I will complain on behalf of another if I think they have been victimised, even when it has come back to bite me!

MODS on any forum are only human and of course they might get it wrong from time to time, but on R&E it seems they are damned if they do and damned if they don't! I doubt anyone else would do better.

He did say that she was on of the few who could provide him with the "intelligent, vigorous debate" that he craved:
"I checked into this place to have intelligent, vigorous debate. Only a handful can supply that besides janie and me, none of them are posting, so there is no need to come back here and shout down rat holes."
so I guess either she must be returning or some of the unnamed people that he refers to must have started posting on R&E since he left.

Ad-O's prayer thread was on topic, had not strayed, nobody was calling names or falling out, it was simply all in support of a chap when he'd asked for support. What's the big deal that it had to be locked?  It leaves Pow wow thinking O-K is jealous, it gives others the provocation to say other things, and to me, it's yet the latest example of his consistent lack of understanding and short sightedness.

Hi Spiggy,

I've read his posts today. Yes he's still remembering the incident that he fell out with you about but I read it as being more a complaint about lopsided moderation rather than still being rankled with you.

Ah yes Janiecupcake I liked her .... I remember now some lively discussions twixt you two
not that I could always follow them mind ... didn't know what half the terms meant. It had been a good 30 years since I'd mixed with 'intellectual' feminists and in the meantime I'd brought up 2 sons which gave a different insight. Still work to be done biggest moan from my female friends being men not doing their fair share of the housework! My sons of course were brought up to do their share. ...... although you might need to check with their girlfriends to find out it I was sucessful!

It's quite straighforward.

If all complaints about moderation have to be made in secret to the moderators then all complaints about moderation can be safely ignored by the moderators without the risk of anyone else finding out that all complaints about moderation are ignored by the moderators.

I send polite queries to Syrup about his utterly shite moderation and only ever got 2 replies, both of which could have been written by Violet Elizabeth Bott.

He is at least amusing if only for his wittless hypocrisy.Starting threads about corrupt, self serving bankers and then insisting that all dissent from his ineptitude be conducted in private. Jimmy is fighting a losing battle there. The forum only has about a dozen members who post regularly, a quarter of whom are also moderators , half if you count the ones who are mods here, just about fucking all of them if you count the facebook fishwives group.

It's shit because they like it being shit.

And now they're banning people for what they say on other messageboards.Totally moronic.

Posting wearing Mod badge:  Two entirely separate sites in that sense.  Very little modding is needed here: all the stuff containing rude words and personal attacks ends up in the Bear Pit.  Occasionally when people have posted something in error, the odd word may get deleted.  Simples.

Jakswan has a couple of blogs out there and a twitter feed (before I get accused of "stalking" I went looking to try and contact him during the big crash last year). IMO he's definately not Gonnagle.

I am puddled in the head, but seem to have an inability to keep away from this forum, even though I get grief from some members. I have toddled back again and no doubt some of you will be doing your best to ensure I do another floo flounce in the very near future. In order to see how long I can withstand the jibes, which will no doubt be flying in my direction, I will make a bet than I can last out until August 31st. If not I promise to donate 20 to 'Save the children'!

Welcome Back Floo - I for one am glad to see you posting again. Missed you - don't always agree with you - but still missed you.



And we're all allowed to flounce once in awhile

Willow!

Welcome back.

You know we love you really!

But you are just so teasable!

You are no longer "Flurker".

(Until the next time.   )

Thanks IO

Some of the 'teasing' wasn't exactly pleasant, but I should have tried to rise above it!

Because she's not "Floo the Lurker" (at the moment).

Which parts of it were any worse than things that you have said about other people?

If you're going to dish it out you have to be prepared to take it.

Hi Roses,

You flounce as much as you want, gal ... and let those who don't like it, lump it!

Well we have just had a sudden downpour in Nottingham so they will be useful in my garage that's for sure.

By 'eck, Floo, that was a quick flounce!
Welcome back...again!

Thanks love!


We have no water in our vicinity until 5pm, not even rain!

The water board is air cleaning the pipes today to get rid of any sediment that has built up. It has been off since 9am and a right pain that is too! I have filled water jugs for drinking purposes, and the bath for others, but you realise just how much water you normally use during the day when you can't turn the tap on. Mind you, we are having to be a little less gung-ho with the water supply than we were heretofore, as there is a water meter, something we have have not been subjected to in our 43 years of marriage!

Yay!    

If I tease you, it's out of fondness.  I knew the flounce wouldn't last long and I'm pleased you're no longer Flurker.
