    An Explanation, of sorts..

    <DIV>Right lads, this is what you wanted.</DIV>
    <DIV></DIV>
    <DIV>First of all, bare in mind that as a group of moderators, we are all still learning on what is required of us as moderators of the site.</DIV>
    <DIV></DIV>
    <DIV>One thing that didn't happen prior to socks' ban was a discussion on the topic. Going forward, we have agreed that it will take place before anybody else is banned.</DIV>
    <DIV></DIV>
    <DIV>As for the reason for socks ban, he started a thread "worst moderator on the internet". this after referring to Point as a nazi moderator frequently over the passed few weeks.</DIV>
    <DIV></DIV>
    <DIV>Not all of the moderators agreed with having socks banned, but once a ban is in place, it will remain in place. If we start banning and unbanning people after an hour, things will just get out of control.</DIV>
    <DIV></DIV>
    <DIV>None of the moderators were forced to toe any particular party line. it was an open discussion between some, and not all of the moderators. (we can't all be online forever).</DIV>
    <DIV></DIV>
    <DIV></DIV>
    <DIV>I'm sure plenty of you will remain unhappy and give out, but an explanation is what you requested, and there you have it.</DIV>
    <DIV></DIV>
    <DIV>Ruck.</DIV>

              So one person made the decision for all.....my point again....why not just have one mod then, cos the rest of you just bowwed down.


              The right thing at this time would be to un-ban Socks, and then make your set of rules up, don't make them as you go.


              One mod looks like a dictator at the moment....

                  Ozoyo message when this site opened.


                  We now have a full team of moderators
                  We have decided to increase moderation on the new site so anything abusive, libellous or off topic will be instantly deleted. We have worked a lot on this new site and we intend to keep it clean...
                  We count on you to respect this place.

                    Nonsense Bitter, we reviewed the situation and decided Point was right,
                    it wasn't a lightly taken decision but just becuase someone is a mod
                    doesn't mean he is allowed be the recipient of continual snide abuse.
                    It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

                    Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

                      Nobody seems to be prepared to make a decision when Point is offline.

                            Thanks Ruck.

                            I think it's well-known that there are posters here who don't, won't or can't see eye to eye or agree on things and have a history of disagreement reaching back years. I'm not sure if it's right that the personal animosities should translate into bannings. I'm not keen on calling people nazis either but, you know, if you don't want people to think you're heavy-handed, banning them for saying that you are isn't exactly smart.

                              Joey, if anything, snide abuse was going the other way!
