Is that why they rely on fear and intimidation to keep everyone here subdued? A simple look at this thread shows that people are afraid to speak out against them, or not give them praise. Don't let those that have vanished have suffered in vain. Remember their sacrifice. The mods can't stop us all.
But you already knew that. If you're not interested in my opinion about the moderation in particular for some reason, fine, it's you who have to live with the effects of your moderation policy (but it's still a pity for everyone who doesn't spend lots of time here). However, if you declare somebody else whom you disagree with as "conspiracy theorist", stepping onto a path that would degrade that person, effectively belittling whatever it is that that person had to say, then I will publically call you out for it, because I do not think that that is correct coming from a moderator, and neither would it help anything.
I've read your post, christoph, and both of your links but it's still not clear to me what you think moderators are doing or not doing that you disagree with. The only thing I could identify looks like a forum configuration issue, which is ED's job, not the mods.
Also, it's generally best if you assume anything Wally posts is a joke.
Same for my posts, especially all of them in this thread. I am pretty sure the moderators know how I really feel about them. If the worst thing I am called today is a conspiracy theorist then today is a great day for me. I kinda wanted the moderators to play along, but they are probably too busy taking care of all the important shit when they swing by.
[doublepost=1484353158,1484352924][/doublepost](Sometimes I wish we had the old Wally moderation style again. The mods are even more lenient collectively now that he backed off.)
Then @Wally please accept my apology over what I've written here. When somebody says things like those that @rygD wrote here, I will not assume that it was a joke, especially not if it was in written form. @levi I didn't want to go into details here, this is not the right place for that.
For the record, I don't think it is possible for users of a forum to be treated anything like the people of North Korea by moderators, a revolt against moderators would be futile.
I won't bore you with why I do things like this, as even this example has many reasons. You might want to reconsider blindly accepting what someone says, whether negative or positive. Also, the loudest person isn't always "right".
Thank you, but I do never blindly accept what anyone says. If you re-read this thread, you'll notice that I've written exclusively about: a) Something that pertains exclusively to my own past experiences on this forum and 2) Something that pertains exclusively to an occurrence that is encapsulated in this very thread, and can thus be assessed by any individual person who can read it.
