Why are you modding, it seems to make you angry. Do you really need that?

as I said - you people really have no idea about me

the people who actually know me in real life know that I rarely get angry, but again if your assumptions help you then go for it

Yeah, it went so well last time...

The idea is sound enough especially if it's confined to approving guest posts and general tidying up duties - and no public egos to make things worse.


Is this a clumsy attempt at suggesting Hobbit should have only been asked to help out as Forum Support?

I see you've clocked up yet another full day of sentient Dogs vigilance, whilst dispensing your (imagined) pearls of wisdom and (completely unsolicited) advice on how people should behave and how things should run here.

Like or loathe Murasaki, at least she doesn't shy away from clearly stating what she has a problem with. Unlike the persistent background noise of your constant whining and sneering, masquerading as 'logic' and 'guidance'.

Cannot stand mealy-mouthed, self-important, meddlesome old windbags like you :roll:

If only you'd learn to wait for the conversation to develop before jumping in then all would become clear to you. Try not to let your vagina do your thinking for you, sweetheart. :laughing:

I guess i'm the only person who didn't get an invite to the other forum, do I get a prize? But seriously the other day my mother asked me if I still posted on forums. I said "well, I only started going back recently, but holy shit! I see the same stuff that's been going on forever." I said, "the same people have been fighting about the same crap for over a decade and these are adults." I said it's so off-putting, that I haven't really posted much." It's hard to believe that some of these people are adults, kind of blows my mind. I told her about the forum wars and how some people, (a lot it seems) can't let things go. I've seen this happen on so many forums and can't believe that it still goes on after all these years. It's like a soap opera, you can go away for years and come back and see the same stuff different people and not have missed anything. Isn't there anyone willing to stop and just let old crap go? Can't people start anew?

I see a lot of new posters here now since I used to post or at least maybe just new names. I don't read the crap I see about any new names as I never go by what others say, I always have to see for myself and make up my own mind. I like some of the new ones and some of the old. Lady M, I always liked you and thought you as a decent poster, but I don't like what I see lately. Can YOU be 1 who CAN let things go?? Rocky! holy crap! What the hell got into you. I like the old "Rocky & Dean" show better. You hopped up on those energy drinks? lol It's hard to see people I like, having such negative words toward another person I like. Through the years of watching this happen, I've changed my feeling toward another, it's like whoaaa I wouldn't hang with people who did some of the things I've seen or heard. So yes it's hard and even more when you see new people and you are trying to see what kind of people they are, and then you see one who you think is cool until you see something they said over and over and you have to maybe re-think them being cool. :bawlin: I know we can't all get along but we can all be civil can't we?

Outside of a few doxings, has anyone really ever done anything to another? I mean really harm them? I mean it's just words on a forum, at the end of the day, it's not even real. I know it's hard not to bite when goaded but you CAN do it. If you don't like someones persona here, just ignore them. It would be nice though if people could just let the old crap go and start anew. I'm not asking for a knitting forum lol I don't mind the banter but all this other crap back and forth of accusing someone and the crap about the other forum. Damn! I guess it's too much to ask if everyone could just let that go? Try something new for once? And lastly pleeeeeese Budgie and Jobless, can you take the "Budgie & Jo show back over to CM? So hard to wade through all that boring, annoying crap. :mrgreen: my 2 cents, sorry so long.


Hi Abs. I found it easy to let go go of a lot of the rubbish that used to go on and I still hold a forlorn hope that those with remaining grudges just put them behind, toss them away.

The present crap is because certain people on here don't like Hobbit mainly, but Hobbit stepped up to the plate because we needed help and she is one of the (semi) sane posters on here. Dean offered but modding from a phone is a pain in the arse and the three of us left were stressing about who could help (we're all old and have bits dropping off). Lady M was asked and turned us down (in retrospect one of her better decisions) and Hobbit was asked. Not one of her detractors bothered to offer to help at what was a difficult time.


I might have offered help, but I wasn't asked, nor did I get that memo BIB.

I learn't from DTV never to ask to be mod/admin. That was done via PM, as I'm around in the early hours. But, it was made public, and I got a burning. So, basically I got a kick in the teeth.

Didn't see that ^^ before I posted.

Stooo is very lucky to have you on the team. You're sharply observant, highly intelligent, and funny as fuck (...and succinct! :gigglesnshit: )

I'm getting sick of the sight of people who don't pay a cent to keep the hamster fed here, trying to dictate to admin how things should roll :roll:

If it's not M, it's fricking Az or Red. Every sodding day ... :roll:

What’s the difference between modding and forum support? Anonymity?

It's part and parcel of the job. Dare I say it 'shit happens'.

I've modded and been an admin on a fair few forums back in the day and basically you have to deal with all sorts of shit. Can't handle that, don't do it.
