    angry mods?

    I was just reading a thread and now it seems that its gone. I have also had a couple of posts deleted in the last couple of days in this and the road section, and they were not distasteful or anything of that sort. Did the moderators get tighter policies or are they now on a power trip?

    It definately makes for a much more exciting day as a spectator than usual. I have to keep refreshing in case I miss one of the quickly disappearing posts!

    any comments from the mods? it may useful if they told us what everyone was doing wrong. more people would read postings than the terms and conditions of the forum.

    i had a post deleted. but the post in question was made in a state of inebriation; I used the F word, cleverly spelled with two c's so to trick the censorship filter.

    After a pint of Rogue and a split pitcher of Stella, I'm pretty F'ing funny.

    Will look into it!

    I do understand Mayo publicized a PM from another Mod and has been a continual source of agrivation to many members and mods alike. He's been know the "push the limits" of the guidelines and the patience of members.

    This reminds me of the time that everyone forgot that Bike Forums is (to the best of my knowledge) a PRIVATELY OWNED website and that the owners are free to set whatever danged rules they want. So if he/she/they deciedes for some meshuggeneh reason that race baiting and gay-unfriendly language are not the kind of things he/she/they want in the forums that he/she/they are paying for then it's kind of, like ohmigod, his/her/their call.

    People need to stop blowing this shizz out of proportion. Hosts are allowed to kick people out of their parties. Pass the punch and lets get back to karaoke.

    Okay - so the forums' streetsweepers have made a round. I know that Joe likes to have a place that is amiable to as many people as possible and this will usually mean that things will fall on the side of Walt Disney versus Larry Flynt. Guess what - it is a forum. And it is Joe's forum. Yes, you can say whatever you want, and then based on forum guidelines, the Mods can edit/delete/ban as they see fit. This type of action is usually discussion based also. Gone are the days (I hope) of the lone gunman Mod.
    In short, if you don't like the way you are being "treated" in a forum, it would make the most sense to leave. If you walk into a burger joint and the menu states NO FISH STICKS, and you demand fish sticks, aren't you the fool for staying around and complaining that the burger joint does not carry fish sticks even though it is clearly stated on the menu?

    Being a mod is a thankless job most of the time. I liked it, but the shoes were too tight. And I like fish sticks. So I made the change. I highly recommend that if this place frustrates you to no end and you can no longer bear to watch numerous, redundant messenger bag rating system threads disappear that you move on. I know I have.

    There are a lot of books out there to be read. There are a lot roads out there to be ridden. And there are better conversations to be had. I dig this place as I have met a slew of really great people. But it is not the lifeblood of my existence.

    There's my nickel, can I get three cents back?

    exactly.

    seems like some people around here are/were trying for a people's revolution, but unless assuming the monthly server hosting bill is mentioned in the manifesto, I don't see it happening.
