Hello Gabriella

Welcome to our newest member.
Powwow

Hello Gabriella, welcome and right now this place is like being alone but that can change. I need to pop in more but right now my gardening business is freaking me out. Very busy.

Hi Gabriella

Hi

Just had a PM asking me to pass this on

Hi Rose

Hope you are well. I just tried logging onto NGL Returns but my account hasn't been activated yet - I just sent a PM on here to Trent to see if he can help as he is a Mod there. Anyway I thought I'd let you know as I just noticed there is a welcome Gabriella thread on NGL, which you wrote on  - thank you. If you are in touch with the Boyg and Johnnie who also said welcome, pls let them know I'm not being rude - I just haven't been able to log on to respond.

Regards
Gabriella


Hopefully she will be able to get on soon.

I think Shaker is the only one with the authority to activate new accounts.
Gabriella

Hey - I'm in. Hello and thanks for the welcome. Will take a look around.
The Boyg

Hello, it's a bit quiet at present.
Gabriella

Hi - Yes it is - I was hoping to get an idea of how bad the Bear Pit was as NS stated a thread on R&E about everyone being nicer to each other and not using certain words to describe certain groups. But the Bear Pit has been culled.

Ah well, everyone seems to be being nicer to each other on R&E as a result of the thread so let's see how that progresses.

How are you? Shame they haven't seen fit to rescind your ban on R&E - I supported having you back but no joy. On the other hand I'm not on R&E much as it took too much of my time - so you probably found you were also a lot more productive without pointless arguments on R&E to distract you.

Gordon won't step down and hand over admin duties to anyone else.

He's the Robert Mugabe of R&E.

Quite sad that anyone would be so attached to such petty power.

Not sure anyone else has asked to be a Mod that the current Mods will be ok to work with. I might have missed it - have not been on there a lot - just started posting again recently. They currently seem quite hands off - they make the odd "I suggest you stop digging" comment, which no one takes any notice of. And given the headache of dealing with spam, not sure if anyone else wants the job.

A lot of the strong personalities who used to cause flash points or complain to the Mods and get into power struggles don't seem to post anymore.

Dealing with personality issues and attitudes when running a business is a headache let alone modding a forum. At least at work you have some leverage as the business owner when there are disagreements - people realise that at the end of the day the business is your vision and you are the one taking the biggest financial risks.

Maybe Gordon and the other Mods are ihaving a fairly easy time and want to keep it that way.

It's a shame though - I liked your contributions most of the time and thought they added value to the forum - it's a bit more boring and quieter now - but I guess that's how the majority like it, whereas I prefer a controversial discussion. By the way, I thought you were a great Mod. Shame Gordon can't forget the past, if it is him blocking your return, and the two of you figure out a way for you both to co-exist on a forum without it turning into a power struggle.
The Boyg

To be fair it's not just Gordon. Rhiannon probably wouldn't allow me back either due to the fact that she believes that I bullied her when I was an admin because I used the word "fucking" as an adjective in one of my replies to her.
Gabriella

Haha - oh well.

I don't think anyone got very far trying to bully me - I got told to shut the fuck up by one of the posters- it might have been when I was arguing for them to rescind your ban.

Maybe she's toughened up now.
Powwow

She's (Rhi of the sky, earth and water) very selective. I raised a stink over a goof calling for evangelicals to be rounded up and shot. Rose defended my position and Rhi told her to toughen up basically. I made fun of Rhi's stupid piece on her experience with the moaning and wiping wind and rain, she has a melt down and sends Gordo after me. That lady needs mental help.
Gabriella

Yes - I was surprised when she defended Ippy's comment. Say something similar about gay people and all hell would have broken loose.

People are selective, some more than others. I don't think it is realistic to expect the Mods to not be influenced by their own experiences or personalities. Not many people have time to be a mod, and the board wouldn't work as well without them, and it's pretty hard to be objective. I thought Outrider managed it pretty well. But R&E is OK despite somewhat selective mods.

Best not to take anything said on R&E seriously - many members go there because they enjoy making a point, and one of the points is that they can offend someone in a way they would not do in real life
The Boyg

The thing about R&E was that it was supposed to be a continuation of the community from the BBC R&E messageboards.

But many members from that era have drifted away from it (or been expelled) because of the bias and favouritism.

The BBC mods may have been pretty shit a lot of the time, but at least they were shit to everyone equally.
Powwow

That's true Boyg. The BBC mods would never have protected floo from being challenged on her spooks (hoax). Especially considering her and her hubby welcomed the BBC into there home where they paraded themselves and their BS stories in front of the camera. Too funny.

That's strange.

According to The Poster Formerly Known As Matthew Hopkins all Pagans have a great sense of humour when it comes to their beliefs: http://www.religionethics.co.uk/i...p?topic=12127.msg615827#msg615827
The Boyg

One can see just how evident his sense of humour is with respect to Paganism from his reaction to the content of this mildly satirical Pagan website:

This however is total bollocks!

As to the rest - you won't find this much rubbish on a council landfill site.

As said before this is an American site and cannot be compared to the way British either witches or pagans are.
