Revdevil would you agree that often members with high itrades help monitor the exchange ? And respond to repair GBU ?? Hopefully no one wants to see the forum in ANY area suffer. That being said, my remarks regarding selecting a Mod. and offering 3 names was my input. I NEVER said, 338375 that anyone should be removed from consideration because of where they spend their time. I did mention that when a Mod enters the "adult" sections, he MUST remove his mod. hat. No one IMO does this better than Rev. A short review of the past will show, including the last 3 days days, where Mods. and Mod. Candidates can not keep on track. I feel my 3 guidelines would help solve that, again opinion. This was posted in Tech.Support, and actually dragged the "Adult" section here into where I Guess Spark/Kevin actually wanted input. This is the point, IMO that the entire forum begins to suffer. And IMO it is planned to keep the avg. member from posting as they do not want the drama. Many avenues of knife discussion exist . This tactic, prevalent on this forum gets a lot of attention elsewhere, as to why others do not frequent here. Regardless of topic, I feel a large crowd, brings greater opportunities. I am in no way against any group or topic they chose. I do feel it is the mods. job to see the lanes stay open and the information flowing to ALL involved. I would Never, Never want to see any section closed, but feel strongly the only way to protect freedoms is via a strong guard. One focused on the end desired survival of all. And that requires members who can reply accordingly, and honestly. Showing a lack of control in any area IMO suggest what that member can not control themselves. Nothing happens here unless someone drags it in or out of a sub. , please think about it. Gates are meant to keep things out as well as things in. And Gatekeepers/Mods must understand that. Post all they want, but only enforce the rules, and never react to a situation they start. It's that simple, IMO. After all that is what the last several days have been about, Mods. molding the mud they cast. Please consider SPKETCHEN, SETH GREEN AND KELEMA .
