    Considering the circumstances, I think Kimmi still has grounds to complain.

    [/QUOTE]


    IMO, everything that I have said in this thread is now validated.  Having the mods reveal their identities does not alleviate any concerns that I've had about bias, favoritism, or the 'frat'.

    Well said.

    [/QUOTE]

    The "big deal" was that a few wanted to be able to do what I said before.  To view the actions of the moderator through the prism of what they'd posted before.   Many of us were more interested in what kind of a job the mods were doing than who they are - which seems more reasonable to me.

    Frankly... were I to choose a mod based on their postings I would not have chosen Pumpsie.  It would have been someone.... less... radical.  (?)  However, IMO as a moderator he's done a very good job of separating his 'Pumpsie role" from his "Moderator role".  As a moderator he's fair, reasonable, and rational - traits I don't always see in his postings.  

    As to the charge of bias, everyone has their own axe to grind.  If I wanted to charge the Mods with bias I'd say that they've shown a bias toward Bill, letting him stick around as long as they did with his flaming and baiting.  However, they asked the board what the board wanted and the response was that the posters wanted some flaming and baiting to be ok.  (Entertainment value, I guess).  So that's what they did.  I don't agree with that, but they're not trying to run the place, they're just the moderators and I respect that.  

    Now that the mods have been "outed" they're probably going to be held to a higher standard than the rest of us - which I see as unfortunate for them, but that's not my problem.

    Actually, it doesn't bother me or change anything on how I feel or post.

    To them, I think that anonymity would have been better because there are some postesr here who will forever treat them like they have a target on their back.

    Can you guys 'lock threads' ? Probably my cheery suicide thread could be closed - but not deleted; then it call fall into the archives.

    No, but its a good suggestion. If we could lock thread and merge threads it would be an improvement. I will suggest it next time I write to the management. We can MOVE threads, but I am not sure where we can move them to since we have been instructed to stay out of all the other forums in terms of moderating.

    Presumably you checked your pms and are willing to let the BurritoT username drop out permanently.

    I'm glad you shared what you did.  This board is a strange place especially for those who have been posting here a while.  Even though we really don't know each other we all share at one time or another personal parts of our lives.

    If sharing helped you out a little then it's good you started that thread. If you want it to fall into the archives I won't post on it again.

    I hope you start feeling better.

    I am Mod1 and Pumpise is Mod2...And Now BoSoxJoe5 ...There you have it.

    They started it last May on a trial basis because of a number of posters requesting it, and I was nominated by a few different posters. It was on a trial basis and was/is working good. Things were starting to get a lot better and people here were making that known. I was having to battle the outsourced Mods quite a bit due to me "knowing' the posters here and their history and they didnt. I actually got a few posters reinstated after they and/or their posts were blocked. Bill, Zac, and Burrito to name a few. When all the changes started with this website earlier this year and positions changing over at BDC, it became hard to manage the forum. There were a lot of glitches. That, and I am working as well as starting my own business. I used to work from home and was able to be here all the time, but when things changed (about the same time as all the issues happening on the forum), it was decided we needed another Mod.

    We decided that pumpise would be a good choice and I believe he has done a great job. Things have gone so good with having community Mods that another moderator has be brought on, BoSoxJoe5, who I believe will also be a fair and reasonable mod.

    I will still be here along with Pump and Joe now. We all felt it was time that everyone here know who within our community is moderating.

    Perhaps one day we can all meet for a drink, of course you would have to come back to the states ;0)  I sometimes wonder what that would be like.  I have a feeling we would all be surprised to find out who each of us really are.

    May you have love that never ends,
    lots of money, and lots of friends.
    Health be yours, whatever you do,
    and may God send many blessings to you!

    Having a drink reminds me that I'm half irish LOL!  This little irish saying is kind of nice.  I hope you like it.

    This is exactly what posters object to.  ^^This is not a political "discussion".^^  This is pure and simple political baiting, flaming, and stirring the pot out of the context of the current discussion.
