<strong>I asked in the other thread, but I ask again in the hopes of actually getting an answer this time:
What are you talking about?
What is "too involved in the details of each thread"?</strong><hr></blockquote>AI has gotten really screwed up lately. If you don't see it, you're blind.
Locking all religious threads, giving members special condescending names, moving threads back and forth between forums, starting new forums, calling everyone 'idiots' on the front page, being defensive insulting jerks when people post suggestions or express dissatisfaction, locking threads because a mod thinks it's "stupid" (if that's a reason for locking...). Should I go on? I think all the complaints from members speak for themselves.
Look at the very first mod's post in this thread. WTF is up with that, as a response to a legitimate Suggestion thread?
Again, I ask, what's changed that's necessitated these actions? I don't know, but the only change I see that's occurred is a bunch of new mods in the past couple of weeks. It's a logical causal assessment, I think.
I say it's a moderator-induced problem because there just isn't a problem if you folks would chill out and stop seeing every quirk on the boards (like several religious threads at one time) as some problem that demands immediate intervention. As some of the mods are fond of saying, just lighten up, chill out, stop meddling, and things will go back to normal on there own.
And I still think Fireside Chat is a bad idea. I just don't see what problem it's solving. It just means more clicks to see what's going on.
As for you personally, groverat, I've just been needling you a little. You deserve it for your years of needling everyone else around here. I think I made one fairly innocuous comment directed at you. I just wanted to see if you, as a mod, could take what you've always loved dishing out. Apparently not.
I'm not going to bitch anymore. But something has gotten out of whack around here. Hopefully things will go back to normal soon.
(I've gotten lost in the other threads and can't find your questions anymore. I responded to Powerdoc in another thread.)
