This goes back to the age old question is it an insult if itís 100% true?



The statement was based on his posting history, so itís not an insult whether itís true or not.

In fact, the post spoke to his perceived probability of becoming a Moderator and said literally nothing about him.

There is a better chance we find a betting system that works than you becoming a moderator here.



Personal insult. Based on prior offenses -- seven days.

I want to go on public record by stating that no matter how many people vote for me I do NOT want to be a mod.

I actually question whether AxelWolf is a secret mod. He certainly has gotten suspended his fair share.

I do suspect Gialmere of being a secret mod - he is unfailingly pleasant and reasonable and he ran the Easy Puzzle thread. I think he would be an ideal candidate to be promoted to green moderator, along with Mission.

The problem with the Moderator position is that it is not attractive. When the Wiz described the position, there was not a single positive attribute about the Moderator position that he cited. Let's face it, there should be free beer and naked cheerleaders.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

I was thinking that.

Maybe we need fewer moderators. Instead of worrying about the quantity, perhaps we should look into the quality. Suspending people based on another posters whining is ridiculous.

Do you mean that it was based on his trip reports?

LOL.
But seriously. Who's been whining? Evidence?
