Post deleting does seem somewhat whimsical. Or should I say "holier than thou"?

You understand the mods are volunteers, right???

Or at least acknowledge its a chitty job a lot of the time.

Getting your chain yanked constantly and getting second guessed probably gets tedious, especially when they are opening their paycheck.



The alternative could be someone from IB that doesnt get the humour and jist of half the comments on here.

But I'm only posting this in hopes of getting a pass, the next time I ask someone to phuck off.

I have to agree with catastrophe. Moderators can't win. Regardless of how well they do their job, there will always be someone who doesn't like how they do it. They will have their judgment and integrity questioned regardless.

I have seen moderators deal with questions on both with class and dignity in situations where I, frankly, would have told the person questioning my integrity and judgment to go pound sand.

It's OK to question authority. Strike that, it's essential. But if the moderation of any given message board consistently bothered me, I would vote with my keyboard and move on.

Just a thought.

There's that. But also, if it gets bothersome, first, communicate and find the root of the problem. The poster, after taking a poll, might find out he/she is the problem.

Sooooooo.....start a poll.
