Issues for BDC: Letting a Mod take over the forum and do as he pleases. Letting the other two Mod postions sit idle becasue neither of those Mods ever had the time to actually do the job.
Agree, this is an issue. Moderator 2 is out of control. His ego seems to have gotten the better of him. This makes him unsuitable to hold such a position, in my opinion. Also, I really have a hard time believing that the other moderators approve of and sanction his recent behavior. If they do then it is also my opinon that we don't need them here as moderators either and that it is time to end this farce.
Thank you Burrito and Antibody.
Pumpsie is overstepping his bounds as a moderator.
When a moderator is blatantly violating the posting policies and changing posters thread titles for no good reason, something needs to be done. And if the other two mods are okay with this behavior, then it is an even bigger issue.
I think it's worth noting that moderators weren't interested in any guidelines for bannings enough to ask about it. Maybe they like the idea of having carte blanche.
I think bannings used as disiplinary measures should be stopped. That is a practice that was started by the new moderation and was never in place before that. It seems like bannings are now applied when someone asks too many questions, says the same thing too much, doesn't agree with moderation & voices their opinion, and sometimes it even seems like when it's just a power trip to do it.
FTR bannings should only be used in extreme cases, that's why its called banning. It's because it was permanent. I don't know how all these bannings are being justified. Post removal -- sure -- bannings -- no way.
And the taunting of posters is waaay out of line for a moderator. I could start w/ "crickets" after a poster's comment, but the list would really be endless and would include banning a poster and then printing their comments to mock them.
I think it may be worth looking into a formal complaint by members of the forum as a group as to any and all concerns.
