The way he posted in the BrianL thread was not how a mod should react to a new poster. The fact that he may not be knowledgeable about Sports Betting as much as the regulars is actually a good thing in my opinion since it keeps him apart. So, when he trolls newbies it seems strange and out of place. I just think you should scale back a bit and let the forum breath without jumping down anybody's throat. Just take it easy ...
I do think Bob should stay as mod though. Maybe a compromise could be reached if we have two mods? The only candidate worthy of consideration is Wiper who would add a good balance to the SB forum.
Again, Microbob has difficulty understanding this . Ever since he became a mod , the regulars have stressed this out to him , but he feels the need to put his nose in the bushes every time he gets a chance.
Its pretty hilarious how MicroBob derails and trolls threads.
As for a change, I'm not sure why people are scared of change. Just have him gone,
I mean How much worst could the next mod be? really?
All it takes to mod the forum courtesy of B00t is :
1. If someone posts blatant spam to touts, affiliate links, or blogs, delete it.
2. If someone is spamming with 40 posts in a row being disruptive, delete them.
Otherwise let it be.
Microbob fails to understand that and never will

Anyway, everyone in that thread had cooled out and moved on. Most of us are fine now. Too bad you are not and/or can't figure that out.
I don't think survivors are allowed anymore but I would be happy to do one against you. Regulars would vote. Loser has to leave the forum. You game?
I have no idea who still wants to keep you as a mod
People are lazy and don't really like to take action in general. I'm very certain if some one else steps up to be a mod , you will be gone
I have no idea why you want to keep this mod job anyways
YES, everyone cooled down but the fact is , you have a screw loose and you will revert back to being the troll mod that you always are .

You're not up for the survivor?
Not sure how this survivor thing works , and thanks for the pad on the back.
But sure I will pm 2-3 people and ask them to become mods and we can take a poll and we will see where you come in? is that how it works?
We will choose Wiper since he has no problem being a mod
Microbob vs Wiper? should I make a thread in SB or take a poll here?
