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?

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.

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.
