    Wink Re: Minor Rules/Infractions Changes

    These rule changes are great. It will keep the boards free of differing opinions, keep new people away for fear of asking yet another stupid question, and make everyone march to the same tune or else. These rule changes were long over due.

    I was getting pretty tired of watching someone new get hammered for asking a question that others thought was stupid and then blasted for only have a few post under their belt. Maybe now some the admins will run afoul of these new rules and find themselves on the receiving end of BBS justice.

    After all, if you are going to apply the rules, should they not apply equally to all? Or is there some kind of cast system that is being kept secret?

    Or was this speaking out of line and now I will get banned?

    Not at all, it will help such debate flourish because now people can expect a higher level of intelligent debate rather than being called names and insulted for their differing opinion.

    If a person can't share their differing opinion without personal attacks, their opinion probably isn't very useful or helpful anyway.

    I once again fail to see how expecting people to treat their fellow members more politely is going to make such situations WORSE.

    If you think staff members are violating rules, you're more than welcome to report the posts or message me privately with your concerns. I've made this offer before yet strangely my inbox stays void of any legitimate complaints.

    That's an interesting strawman argument as I'm not aware of a time where "speaking out of line" has gotten anyone a ban where they didn't fully deserve it by violating the rules and common decency. As previously mentioned though, if you'd like to point out any such case, my inbox is always open.

    Either way, welcome to the site, hopefully we can all have a good time. It seems that 99% of people can without any issues, but I look forward to purging the other 1%.

    I see someones future as short lived........



    I find the Moderation here to be well above many boards that use this BBS system. The errant comment I dont understand aside (Im sure theres something to it Im not party to.) The mods here are nearly transparent and I often forget who they are.


    Off the top of my head theres the guy above me, Ummm.......Kaos?, no, hes got a funny sig line, MasterBlaster.....Oops, wrong forum....Umm, Damn.


    JAYBELL!!!!!! Got one!!

    He sent me an email about a pic I posted of myself as he had some fish and game concerns. He was nice as pie and we even had a laugh over it when things were cleared up.


    Moderation as good as I have seen it.

    Anyone wishing to get an idea of what he deems is getting undeservedly hammered can start here and just go through a couple of responses.... I would hate to have anyone new think we have tyrannical mods

    Please do not bring outside drama into this thread, I am not interested in having people go back and forth in a thread designed to minimize such things, regardless of whether or not it is legitimate.

    Thank you
