Moderators

In view of recent developments in another place, I'd like to go on record straight away as saying that I think the moderation on here is absolutely top notch!

You won't catch me complaining, no sir.

Seriously, though, the moderation here is good - when I get grumpy and use intemperate language, Lexi gently but effectively pulls me into line, and I know she does the same with others, and she never ever ever abuses the access and powers with which she is entrusted.

Very unlike mods on some forums (fora?), who are arseholes. (Sorry Lexi - they are..erm.. recta. Ani)

Genuine thanks, Lexi - you really do do a good job.

Shaker, I'm sure you do whatever it is you do very well too, but I'm not entirely sure what that is. Are you the site owner? Or joint mod?

Er Cyber shift over on the naughty step please I'm joining you. One isn't allowed to question protected species.

Maybe they're going through in alphabetical order. If anyone on R&E has a name beginning with Cz, they'll be next.

Phew!  That's me alright for a bit then.  

I agree that Lexi is an excellent Mod - she allows us to be the mixed bag of adults we are.  I also think it helps having the Bear Pit.

I'm hoping that once things have calmed down a bit over there, it will be a 'time out' situation rather than the permanency it currently seems to have.  It is the only MB in my over 12 years of MB'ing where I've been threatened with being banned (even if the 'threat' was light-hearted: at least, I hope it was ).

Just to put the record straight I haven't been banned i've been suspended. However, threats of and my suspension only occur when I have a go/shot at Floo. Now I don't know what it is about our dear friend and I sincerely mean it when I say friend but whenever i question something bang all hell lets loose.

Thank you!

But then its rare anyone needs to step in when people discuss things in a reasonable manner...

Er change that to Life Ban. I don;t like the idea of using one forum to speak to others on another but in this instance I have no choice. It woukld have been nice if onw or all of the mods on R&E had the decency to contact me and tell me why my suspension was increased to a Life Ban.

This all sems very odd - I know both posters can (how can I put this politely?) misbehave but banning seems very much an over reaction - altho I am aware that I would get the "you don't know whats been goign on behind the scenes" routine from the mods.

And they are right I don't - but it just doesn't seem to tie in with how I have come to regard the 2 posters - and the non-existent diety knows that my Welsh pal and I don't see eye to eye on some topics - but banning........

it seems to be a case of    gone mad I tell you, mad.

I do hope they reconsider this or rather these

Just for the record I didn't complain about your comments on R&E yesterday Cymru, even though as usual you were having a go at my relationship with my daughter! Why the hell you have to try to bring her into everything goodness only knows, you seem obsessed with the topic.  In future it would be best if you ignored me, no pms either thanks. One has to question your sincerity when one minute you are expressing good wishes towards my husband, the next slagging me off.
I'm not obsessed but did ask a question. Certainly I will aceede to your request, but with the same proviso you use. I will ignore you unless you decide to comment on a subject I feel I can respond to.

What is most frustrating is that I have had no communication at all to explain exactly what the problem is. They have somehow banned my computer altogether - so I cannot even observe the site as a guest. I therefore don't even know whether the others have been told the reason for the lifetime ban. I certainly haven't. BUT - I really don't want to drag it over here, I am just saying I wish they had had the balls to let me know.

Cyber I don't know what is going on but would suggest you have another try to get on to teh R&E forum. I tried yesterday and lo and behold it worked. Certainly there does appear to be a glitch that a possible banned operson is unable to contact the heirachy to find out why but as things stand I am able to use both forums.

I have tried this morning and just get the message. It says "Sorry cyberman, you are banned from using this forum!
This ban is not set to expire."

The exclamation mark has Wiggi's baby fingerprints all over it.

Cyberman, they must have banned your IP address.  If you can use a different computer location, you'll probably be able to read the forum (and could do like others do - re-register with a different name and email details).
Farmer Geddon

Ket is nearly right..

If you just clear your cookies then you will be at least able to visit the site..

Unfortunately your IP address is locked out, so every-time you try to log on you will get the same message until you clear the cookies once more.

There are plenty of ways past this problem if you can be arsed to find out how!!

Floo I agree with you, in the main they do a great job - and I'm sure they put up with far more flack than they deserve, especially behind the scenes by PM*.  But we're all human and sometimes, especially in hindsight, our decisions aren't always the wisest.  Under such circumstances, there's nothing wrong with back-tracking a little.



* I'm a Mod elsewhere, so I do know what goes on.  
cyberman

Just to set the record straight on another matter - I have been made aware that the mods over there are claiming that they tried without success many months ago to get me to deal with mod matters via PM. This is a lie. On that occasion many months ago I DID correspond with the RE mods via PM. I was told my grievance would only be dealt with if I gave permission for them to post my PMs on the forum!

Bunch of loonies.

Don't encourage him for pity's sake!  


I think the MODs on R&E are doing an excellent job, they have really been on the ball, and no I am not talking about their dealings with Cymru or Cyberman!
Why note encourage him
Farmer Geddon

I do wish when modding a post, the mod making the decision would put their name to it.....

For tv.. I only ask for a signature on another members post that the mods amend, just so we know who we can disagree with!!
