Hello, relatively new poster here.

I'm in the position of having known about this forum since it was set up, and have had even looked in a couple of times between then and when I joined this year. I joined when I did - and not before - because I felt I could trust the current admin (Lexi) and mods (Ketty and trentvoyager) to run the forum well and fairly.

Nothing since then has caused me to change my mind about that.

It seems most of the problems have occurred in the Bear Pit, but nothing said there is inappropriate for that section.

To sum up: no need to fix what isn't broken!

Thank you JMC.

I think some posters are getting this a bit out of proportion.

Shaker created this forum and is no more fond of banning posters than lexi is. I myself am on record as having stated that I do not like banning posters at all.

I think thrre are occasions when it's necessary but to my mind at the moment no poster currently posting on this site needs to be banned.

Agreed. I do think that some drama fans are already thinking ahead to looking back to the Great Easter Sunday Massacre of 2014 or something - the Wet Sunday Afternoon of the Long Knives.

I don't think there will be a swathe of bans now the admin has changed, but the site I joined was a site with Lexi at the helm, not anyone else. My comments about how I think the board is well run was connected with that state of affairs, as I thought Lexi hadn't made the final decision yet. Unfortunately it seems she has.

Has a post disappeared from this thread? I seem to remember Ralph2's previous post - now the last post of the previous page - was at the top of this one...

Can I add to the voices hoping Lexi will reconsider?

This is a well run, fair board & Lexi can take a lot of credit for that

Can I remind everyone that this is not the Bear Pit.  This thread is Lexi saying her farewell (hopefully not for too long), and for the rest of us to express our thanks.  Its purpose is not to carry on any squabbles.

I suppose that's an indirect answer to my question further up the thread regarding disappearing posts.

Expressing the hope that Lexi changes her mind, and saying the forum was very good with her as Admin - with reasons, rather than just as an empty platitude - is a legitimate purpose for posting here too. Seeing as Lexi mentioned "recently expressed views" as a reason for leaving, rebuttals and disagreements with those expressed views are part and parcel of that, I'd have thought.
