I'm not saying this in regards to who you know, or anything of that sort, but it fits to a certain degree. Some people catch on faster than others, some may take a while longer, but I believe we as a community try our best to respect one another.

Did that make sense? Or am I babbling to myself again? lol
Yeah, that makes sense, and I kinda know thats the wat it is, bit in certain respects, especially when it involves objectional or even downright nasty responses, its not. There most be thousands of interferencers and probably only a 100 or so make regular visits so a lot of people don;t know what is going on, and its hard to tell sometimes where a person is coming from if you don't know them that well. I still feel though, that you have to be careful about what you say in response to a Mod. I do on a whole feel, that the Mods do a great job around here, and I'm sure that they will agreee that it is a thankless job, but sometimes it just seems that if you question their judgement on a decision, its akin to commiting murder, and you will be told to F*** off and if you don;t like it don;t comeback. Again, I'm not necessarily criticizing the mods, I've been in their shoes in a different but similar situation, and its tough because its often hard for newbies to know the entire history of a person that is a troublemaker or what not, and the hard lanquauge maybe be entirely justified. hmmmm, Sicy don't be mad at me for this.... PLEASE!!!!!!!

When I am repeatadly dealing with the same person over and over and there is a history there, yes leave if you dont like it can come out of my mouth. Questioning our judgement is a tricky situation because this is the reason we are mods/admins is because of our judgement.

I wont throw you into the river yet.....

I agree with you, Zoo, that nastiness should not be tolerated. But as Sicy stated, there are some instances where a member will overstep boundaries numerous times, thus making it difficult for the mods to be able to deal with them "fairly".

PS-hey bear, I posted that cute little smiley for you. where they hell are you?

The mods here tend to get involved only when they have to and when they do, its usually for good reason. There has been a lot of disrespect directed at them lately and they put up with more crap than I could if I was in their shoes.

This place has been nuts lately and I don't blame the mods for being fed up and not having the patience to deal with all these petty disagreements. We can't even discuss music or Canadian bands without name calling and insults.

I love this board and give Elvis major props for even putting up with us and keeping this board here for our enjoyment. And the mods do this on their own time, unpaid so let's just be nicer to them and to each other and Interference will be a much better place.

Well put Charlene.... I think we all forget what Sicy, Salome, Elvis, and some of the other mods have to put up on a daily basis. We also seem to forget that having this board is a priviledge not a right, Elvis has this forum so we can meet people all over the world who share the same interest, he doesn't have to do this, he chooses to have this forum, good and bad. I have been to forums where if someone says something a mod doesn't like, they are immediately booted, no if ands or buts. I think that the mods here are extremely tolerant with some of the more abrasive personalities.
Just my $.02.
