That's fine.

But I believe it is the general sentiment of forum members here that's how it works.

Pleased to confirm that it is not how it works. Not on my watch.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

I can tell you that complaints influence me very little. They might direct me to a post, but that's the extent of it.



You are only half the team. The halve that doesn't think pot roast is a trigger word.

Are the members actually afraid they would have to stay completely in line with a non biased moderator looking at everything from an outside viewpoint with total adherence to the rules and regulations of the board?

And I speak the truth and I speak from my heart as well as being a real person.

If you want to be considered, send the Wizard a PM. His opinion is likely the one that matters. GL

Didn't Mission go off on a crazy, angry, drunken tirade full of expletives about a year ago, where he threatened to kill people? That got him demoted. I don't think we need someone like that in charge...just my 2 cents.



This is either violating privacy or spreading lies. I believe Mission's denial, so we'll go with the latter. Seven days.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Heís talking about what I said to Shrek at DT. Iím willing to stipulate he just misremembered, if it matters.

It wasnít a threat because I literally challenged Shrek to a fight. I told him to ask for my address so he could come get it anytime he wants. I never said I was going after him.

Also, I donít remember even seeing him over there lately and no longer have any real problem with him.

Okay, I lowered the sentence of mwalz9 to three days. The seven days was because of priors in April and May. However, I guess that was long enough in the past to not factor into the sentence.

In general, if someone told me I had no chance at a promotion, I would feel insulted. The way I act is I put myself in the victims shoes and ask myself how I would feel. Being a truthful statement is not a good defense.

Pressing charges does matter with me. About half of my suspensions would not have happened without them.

Which results in an unfair playing field. Can you imagine if NFL refs took into consideration a players complaints. In all seriousness, you suspended a member because someone else complained to you about pot roast.

They take the coachís complaints into consideration in certain situations; itís called the Challenge Rule.

When I was an Admin, I made it clear that I was not going to read the politics threads often, that way, nobody could argue that I was being biased against people who disagreed with me. As a result, the only way (usually) to get me to take action in those threads was to PM me, otherwise, Iíd have never known about the infraction.
