everyone doesn't though, that's the thing. WE do, regular posters do, but not everyone does.

i still can't believe you don't understand the 'weight and respect' your posts DO carry, just solely based on being mod here.

clearly asking too much

Well, too much to ask in that nobody else wants to be the mod in here. So either tell me who you have in mind or maybe turn the page on this please?

Wiper - No, it's not going to be for ___ days. I stated it pretty clearly and my hunch is that he saw that. If he didn't know what he was really doing in that spot then he can appeal to Mat. Simple.



Green, wiper, naj - Thanks for the compliments.
1. you're welcome. thankless job in one of the most ridiculous forums on 2p2.

2. i am being completely honest here: I didn't know that was a perma. ****, i may have even responded in whatever thread that it became a perma, but i don't remember. i will now, but that's only because it became THIS problem. clam deserves another chance.

also, henry got it locked like THAT? like someone posts a pic of him and then get perma'd with only mat as an out? daaamn

Well, other posters completely disagree with you.

But to your general point, I've even stopped posting my amateur picks in here (for the most part) partly because I did notice that people seemed to actually operate under the misguided idea that I knew what the heck I was doing.

1. again, i'm not talking about regulars or even semi-regulars. i'm talking about the people that come here from either other 2p2 forums or google...if i went into the hsnl forum, couldn't i assume the mods there wouldn't lead me astray?

2. post in the picks thread.

No. I did it. I was sick and tired of dealing with multiple posters thinking it was so hilarious to waste my damn time over and over and over.

Making a mistake in a discussion in the heat of the moment of a discussion is one thing. Okay, I get it. You slipped.

But purposefully making a volunteer mod have to do crap and purposefully taking infractions for your own amusement is just rude. And it isn't acceptable in any forum.


Only Mat as an out is not a terrible thing. You want back in? Contact Mat. Okey-doke fine. The process will potentially move more quickly than a temp-ban in some cases.

Consider it annoying to actually have to do things (contacting me or Mat) instead of things just taking care of themselves on their own? So do I.

I don't frequent that forum. But I do know that in other forums stupid threads are sometimes met similarly by mods. It's not uncommon at all.

But you have gotten your point across. No less than 10 times I'm sure. Can we let it drop now? It happened quite awhile ago so for you to bring up that whole argument again now is kind of silly. I heard your opinion on it...several times.

MB,

I know you already removed clam postign that pic once before and did not perma-ban him (i think you just pulled the entire thread). Clam knew the consequences of posting the pick. i would lay -1000 he was aware. he is just trying to throw his weight around and testing bob. Basically like a 3 year old pushing boundries.

I think making clam only apologize is extremely reaonable deal for something he did on purpose not only once but twice and indicates the leeway bob gives children like clam.

Dodger,

I think bob is getting a unfair deal here (as almost anyone would trying to mod this place). I just pointed out what he has already dealt with/let slide.

I don't think clam is all that great (his well...), i took a shot at him as he does to me often. I think he'll be okay.

Re: January-March *Angry and Bitter People* Chatter Thread

Again, I agree on all your points. That has nothing to do w/ you adding your 2 cents on Calm's ban which is motivated, as you already stated, by a personal vendetta.

It's the forum equivalent of don't speak ill of the dead IMO - or don't talk about someone who can't reply

Re: January-March *Angry and Bitter People* Chatter Thread

wiper - You said you were not aware of the permaban rule but you posted immediately after my post explaining the permaban.

Understand you might have skimmed past it. But kind of funny.

It is post #563 in the Oct/Nov/Dec chatter thread.

Again though, an "accidental" slip (which isn't really an accident....I mean, you have to intentionally go out of your way to post it anyway) is still solved by going to Mat and getting the ban lifted.

Micro, you should loosen up on the modding a bit, I feel like you take your job too seriously sometimes. but seriously, if noone wants you here, I don't understand why you would waste time defending yourself. I mean your modding a forum full of bitter and angry people . Why waste your time and take the abuse here.
What benefits does being a Mod have? Last time I heard, it wasn't a paid job, whats the point ? you love sports betting i know, but you can come back here as a regular poster and still contribute and hangout. I don't understand why you are so keen on keeping your position as a mod. ditch the trolls and live your life!!

Meh, not really.

I've been super-duper lenient on jdock. Probably for too long.

rsig I've been pretty flexible as well.

Overall, I've let way way more stuff go than I've cracked down on. Pretty lopsidedly actually.

I gave jdock a 3 point joke infraction for crying out loud so who exactly is the one who is being too serious?

I don't necessarily enjoy this type of discussion analyzing my every move with a fine-tooth comb, but I'm mostly cool with the decisions I have made and I know I'm trying to help this forum the best I can...and that most posters feel I'm not completely terrible.
