    Why continue the charade of democracy here? Asguard should be banned for his consistent censorship and ideological intolerance. Other moderator violations are legendary.

    Once again, you are whinging in a non-specific way. I already advised you why that will be unlikely to be productive.

    If you have specific complaints, please link to the relevant threads or posts.

    Otherwise, give it a rest. You're like a broken record.

    When people post about specific things even in open government or in feedback, someone just locks threads, deletes posts, and bans users, so why even have these sections at all? Just to torture people?

    Suspicions confirmed. I bet you're the guy who uses a pogo stick to cancel the stamps on packages marked "Fragile."

    We used to have good mods, but they left, and when they returned some got banned by the current creepy-crappy mods. I don't know who the fick made S.A.M. a mod, in the old days she'd get banned for spamming and hysterics.

    Hillyer,
    I think you are missing the point. Multiple threads you've started to generate hypocrisy, in all cases you've not offered constructive criticism but just underlining attacks towards moderation in general.

    I tried to encourage you to be a little be more definitive with you were trying to express, however you pretty much turned it around to make an attack out of it. You are already set in mind in regards to how you believe the moderation to be here, so why do you stick round?

    I don't like showing posters the door, but sometimes it's necessary for them to gain the benefit of perspective. So you have a choice, either stop with the inane posts that are constantly bashing the Moderators/Administrators or take a permanent holiday from the place, we won't mind.

    As for the rest of you:
    As mentioned multiple times if you have a problem with a specific moderator then deal with it via PM, posting to threads like this just identifies you as problem posters which is why you might seeming be ignored when you make open complaints.

    Stryder, you're one of the worst examples.

    Lord Hillyer's behavior is familiar. It's how people behave when they're sick of it.

    So at last we have a confession: moderators will permaban members rather than be critiqued in the open government forum. That settles that.

    Excellent observation.
    And quite true as well.

    I haven't bothered to get involved in the current wave of 'mod-bashing' (having never experienced any problems of note..) but I must say that in my 8 years here, I've never seen the moderation so weak and indiscriminate.

    Humm, haven't had problems with moderators. What do you think they should do/act?

    It's funny how you read it, I wrote my comment slightly different in meaning. I was suggesting if you don't like it, you can leave at any time. However you've automatically jumped to a conclusion, the wrong one I might add.

    MetaKron,
    You're still pissy because I temp banned you for trying to generate a Circular Argument. In fact I wouldn't be so surprised if you remember all the reason you wanted to argue forever over why a particular thread had been closed, even though it's long and dusted.

    Let go of your grudge, otherwise it's just going to eat you up inside.

    To be fair, I have no stake in the issue and I also took it as you offering a permaban.

    It's pretty obvious at this point that the mods here are largely leftist and don't really care about much other than fostering their own various agendas. Place should be called "www.newpravda.com". Try to work within the rules, and then they arbitrarily re-interpret and/or ignore them as long as it suits their agenda at that point in time.
