    This is how most message boards function with some moderation duties performed by the community members.  I am sure the mods selected are very active posters and likely not individuals who post in the politics forum, which doesn't seem to have much heavy traffic.

    everyone will leave.  she will be getting "attacked" by herself and arguing with herself crying out for her boston.com imaginary "friends".

    i advised you before, nytimes, boston herald, and chic tribune all have good posting forums with no poster-moderator bullspit.

    I've been a regular at the Herald for years. like the system now cause you can use it on many sites and keep track of your comments. Looks like she's already driven a lot of older users away.

    i don't know. i am new. i can tell you that since i have been here i have never seen anything like it. in the other national forums she would not be banned or removed. they don't work that way.  she would simply be ignored or ridiculed.

    Damian,

    She said long time posters here.

    I took that to mean here, in the political forum.

    And you are right about other message forums.

    For example HuffPost. But there, you know who the member moderators are.

    Here it seems like it is going to be a secret.

    Follow the link. BDCDottie did say that and she does appear to be a boston.com employee.



    She is. She does the same thing with other forums, like the Red Sox Forum.

    It was originally posted in the Sox forum andie..... if you look I added the link to the Sox forum.

     



    I just noticed that.  It seems a few other posters here missed that as well given what they posted.

    How is that going over in the Sox forum?

    I don't think it went  over anyone  elses head, I think they were mostly following my "let the conspiracy theories begin" tag line.



    Not a big deal. We can agree to disagree.

    Noticed that BDCDottie sent a note to the moderators of this forum to be more judicious etc.

    Wonder if that will do any good.

    I doubt it will do any good, she has mentioned doing this before and it remained the same old same old.....

    Dottie has been a bit more active, she has left a few other notes on various forums. Sounds like they are still working on the relaunch of boston. com.

     



    That is what I thought you would say. I think you are probably right.

    And I think you are right about them still working on the relaunch of Boston.com.

    If BDC ever wants to have users from this forum to also serve as moderators I think that would be a difficult choice.

    However, thinking about who are the more even tempered and thoughtful posters I would say Damian, matty, massmoderate joe and Stalking Butler come to mind as four of the best choices.

    I would trust any of them to be fair in judging deletion of posts.

    That is also two liberal and two consrvatives. All longtime posters.

    Thanks for the endorsement but I here by invoke the Sherman Pledge.

    The term derives from the Sherman pledge, a remark made by American Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman when he was being considered as a possible Republican candidate for the presidential election of 1884. He declined, saying, "I will not accept if nominated and will not serve if elected."

    I moderate via the formal ignore button and informally by being judicious in what I choose to get involved with, and I completely ignore the personal attack dust ups.

    mmj,

    That is too bad.

    I did not know you used the formal ignore button BUT I could see you chose what to get involved in and always ignored he personal attack dust ups.

    I still say you would make a fine moderator.

    Wait....

    You don't trust me to be fair and imparcial?

    I'm saddened by this.

     

    I would have picked you.



    Sorry soxchamps. 

    Since the jobs are still open, I do think you would be good at this.

    Not necessarily, SB.

    Think of it as being omnipotent.

    You press a few butttons, and you change the whole course of threads.

    Less work than posting.

    And your posts NEVER get deleted. The posts you put all that thought and energy into are not wiped out by someone else hitting a button.

    Sounds like a great opportunity for the right person/people.
