Actually.. I did nothing of the sort. I was kind of hoping it would stay, because it just served to make you look bad.

Exactly. You made an attack thread about me, and I gave my opinion on it in here.

But Simple Simon needs more attention! He needs to keep it going, even if it means flat out lying about me 'bitching and moaning and crying', lol.
I think we all know who the real cry baby is. ;)

Should have used my humor font.

Sigh. No one will have the last word because you are both stubborn; I am getting pissed off that MY THREAD I STARTED FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES HAS BEEN HIGHJACKED. And I'm a fucking moderator.

Dig up the fucking Thunderdome thread. :roll:

i wont let crap like the shit being spewed here recently go unanswered, otherwise the douchebags win...

and Neon Tetra, you are a douchebag.

so i guess this means the new year is just like the old until someone gives it up, because i certainly wont back down one fucking iota.

I think we need a Bob thread....after all a lot of the shit hauled out to the playa would've been blown halfway to Salt Lake City if it hadn't been for his structure and wind tying advice advice.

One small critique of moderators in general: the unwillingness to stick to ones guns when fair warnings are issued.

Case in point? The ongoing pissing contest between two particular folks in this forum.

As a creator of the thread Anti you and other thread generators should have the right to demand adherence to the topic/issue being discussed. Letting the shit hats hijack it - especially after fair warning - then becomes the moderators problem. Reluctance with following through can be perceived as a sign of weakness.
Give them the boot and be done with it.

I only wish every thread generator had the ability to control the discussion in the thread(s) they create provided booting is done fairly judiciously.

The first about sticking to their guns shows some flexibility. Condos is Florida have hard, unbreakable rules. On ePlaya, there is some breathing room. Unlike the bitter elderly in the retirement communities in Florida, I think we can deal with some looseness.

The second part is all about thread drifts. For the most part, things stay on track, but the tread drifts can be a lot of fun. It's a time for silliness and frivolity. Imagine a thread started by a dickhead, and that person just keeps booting people from the thread if he thinks they are off base.

I'm with Iso. She (AntiM) can break this off if she wants, so we don't lose the posts. There are few enough places where we have a solid "don't play around" ethos that clearing out one thread isn't a burden. Also, too much chatter reduces the utility of this thread.

again, my apologies to the board, and a certain other fucknut.

i will take that extra extra bong-hit next time, count to, um...

YEAH WHAT ISO SAID ANTIM.

Hard as I try, getting people not to post in your thread is at best, futile. Now if you could just grant me temporary power, I could make this problem and it's co-conspiritors vanish (as long as you don't look in the trunk of my car). But it'll cost ya...

Iso, excellent points. Ah, but I'm stuck with the "don't delete" ethos of the board. I could heavily censor any thread, but I'd rather deal with thread drift and bitching out the participants than wholesale delete comments. Censorship exists here, but I would prefer to minimize it (exceptions apply).

I am soft. I can't throw anyone off the board, or give them time outs. My options are negotiation, an appeal to the better nature of the eplayan. Not always effective. The other is to discuss bad behavior with the admins for IP blocking. Also not 100% effective. If the upgrades come, I think the mods will have more options, and be able to pre-moderate users. That would be useful, anyone who would not play within the guidelines would be placed on post by post moderation. What a pain in the ass. I'd much prefer to have some thread drift, and discuss why frivolity is better left on other threads.

Yes, you fuckos, I am addressing you. This thread is intended for the mods to address the eplayans. Be witty elsewhere. Please. Discussion is acceptable.
These are not my fuckos.
