    There should have been another category IMO. Perhaps "Selective moderating" would be a good one. I find that some posters are subject to fairly tight moderation, while others are allowed to post almost anything without fear of repercussion.

    While I'm sure that everyone has their own ideas as to what should be allowed and what should not, the moderation should be applied uniformly.

    Overall, I find the moderation to be great.

    I know of many, many times when things that needed moderated were taken care of quickly.

    There are times when they let things run a little too far, but that's pretty rare.

    There are times when things get moderated that I don't think should have been, but I probably don't know the whole story.

    ABWPolice, I think the more important question is, what do you care?

    First post and you ask a question like this? Were you banned in a previous incarnation? Are you an itinerant forum troll? A regular poster who signed up with a new nick to blow off some steam? Some background info *might* give you credibility.

    Are you saying that this was a troll poll?

    Yes Adam, I think it's very likely just that.

    Only a troll or a spectacularly stupid newbie would post something like this for their first post.

    Of course it could be Haiko doing Q.C. on the Q.T. but I kinda doubt it.

    TROLL!

    ABW Moderation is much less severe than some other boards I've been a member of.

    No doubt ABWPolice has been banned for something, and is back again breaking the rules by signing up under a new alias. And they wonder why they get banned...

    I think Haiko assigned Gordo the job of being the ABWpolice. Why else would I only get a one week cooling off period after 13,000 posts. I don't wear a tie to work and Charlie hates to wear the Politically Correct parrot poop Depends even at formal events....like wet t-shirt contests.

    I think the incremental banning is very good. I wish some of the people who were banned before it was policy could come back and have to "earn" their way out again.

    Over a period of time, we have lost some really amazing posters.

    Sometimes, it seems like the ones with the quickest wit and most facile minds are also the ones most likely to say things to get into trouble.
    Comments are opinion unless otherwise noted. Remember, pillage first. Then burn. Half of all people in the world have IQs under 100. You best learn to trust ol' SSanf!

    SSanf,

    ... and when they are gone you get to see what type of vindictive and vicious @55holes or just blatant liars they are also, there are two sides remember? Just because I don't post what happens, doesn't mean it doesn't, but I really don't have to post it anyway I'm sure anyone with limited comprehension could understand from the rantings on Mike's board ... you'd think I killed their pet or something. BTW, I won't plug that board ever again - "the recent spamming was because of the plug on 'The Haiko Extravaganza'?" KMFA - what a infantile and little person.

    [Closed]
    Continued Success,

    Haiko
