tommyt (and ALL others) - you believe "I let" the other threads get out of hand? That's interesting. You want to ask Bill to allow you to do the job yourself or will you continue to take shots at me?
Do I need to remind you that I too am a member here, Moderating is a volunteer position. I check in when it is convenient during my day. When I check in, I don't read every post. I don't moderate in every forum.
If I find one of the threads is "out of control" and the boys are banging on each other, I take action. The action I take is different from what you expect? Then you take shots at me for not moderating sooner.
I ask ALL of you if it had gotten "so bad", why do you DO NOTHING about reporting the thread(s)?
Are you ALL not moderators of your own behavior and that of the forums? You have to have a stand up guy to throw darts at in order to wash your own hands?
I have many more important things to do in my day than to hold your hands, make posters walk in single file, and keep the internet bullies apart from one another. Any time you think you can do better, or fill in the coverage gaps when I am not here, then STEP UP or SHUT UP. I am not immune to criticism but from your position of weakness, I listen but do not hear you...
MODERATE YOURSELVES within the GBO Rules. I am not your Mother! Thread closed.
I have created a sticky at the top of this forum that was created in 2011 when the same problems were occurring. Please read it https://www.go2gbo.com/forums/194-po...oderating.html
