screaming eagle screams he hates my ideas .


I have been through having to have my posts read by a moderator (ie. him)


It is so obvious who the trolls and spammers are on that thread AND NONE OF THEM BELIEVE THE EARTH IS STATIONARY. NO NEED TO NAME NAMES, BUT THEY ARE ALL CLEARLY ON THE SAME SIDE WITH screamingeagle

 


And here all this time I thought Screaming Eagle was a female.  I best remember her from the Pictures Only thread at the old forum.  I guess I assumed it was Screaming Eagles pretty eyes pictured in her avatar.  In fact, I don't even remember Screaming Eagle posting words, just cool pictures time to time in the Pictures Only thread.  At least until becoming a mod.


I probably don't believe the Earth is stationary either.


I tested highest in science and I'm thinking it's where I depart due to the way I analyze, how I process information.

 

 

*note - been unsuccessful about 5 times over.  If this one posts will return to further modify (wrap quote mainly) edit - finally!

Wow, gone from one hour editing to one minute huh?  Let me put that in different words.  It has gone from 60 minutes to edit to 60 seconds to edit.  Curious!


Everyone is having similar problems.
l found if l go off to another page and then return to the thread and the post l want to edit, it then works okay..

Where's that facepalm emoji when you need it ?

I totally agree  ,all this talk of censorship and banning people for perceived indiscretions  ,it dose this forum no good because different opinions and attitudes is what makes the world go round and makes things interesting.I understand that there are differing opinions due to  influences such as race  ethnic background , religion and the society people were brought up in . All these things have a bearing on attitudes ,behavior and beliefs ,so  therefore people can't be held responsible for differing attitudes one might find on this forum. So I can say without hesitation and as loud as possible that all people are welcome on this forum ,provided that their respective attitudes are the same as mine, otherwise ban the bastards?

agree. i don't know how this or the new forum is run but i 100% believe in free speech but if there are those who step over the line i think it should be made aware the how and why, not just being banned without others knowledge.

From a consideration of moderation ....

 

I would have liked for all newly registered accounts to NOT be able to post until they have answered three questions.

That the account is NOT active to post until allowed, either by admin or a mod.

 

The concept of this is simply to stop any 'spam' in it's tracks .... stop any 'bots' .... stop any 'shills' .... and to consider the 'want' or 'reason' for someone making an account?

 

It also means that the email address MUST be a real account and not just a 'throwaway'!

It must be real and the newly joining member must also be real .... to answer the emailed questions.

 

It can be simple questions ....

  1. Do you consider that 911 was accomplished as is told by your government?
  2. Is there more to 'you' than just the 'body' or is that it and you die?
  3. Why do you wish to post on this forum?

Now, yes, it means more work for either admin or/and mods .... But it would so much help :)

For me .... on the requirement of 'editing' .... one hour is well enough and stops any deceptive 'later' changes.

 

Mods are there to change any fuck ups .... but your posts should stand.

A thread was made to inform regarding banned members .... but that is currently gone.

Thing is that 'mods' get many reports and if members from 'different' 'sides' are engaging then you may get reports from both considerations about the same interaction!

And mods need to try and be impartial.

 

.... then the mod team would look at the entire thread to find who started any shit and why?

 

It helps to do that as then you can see who is trying to create arguments .... which makes moderation 'fairer'.

 

But everyone is never going to be 'happy'.

Something which I would like to know from the members ....

 

What do you expect from the moderators?

What do you think that they should do?

 

Please remember that their first duty is to protect the forum .... so that it continues!

No ....this forum needs to work together .... not diminish each other.

 

We need 'light' not more 'darkness' .... mate


Wise words....
Wise.
Words.

How about for long standing members.
Anyone can sign up easy and access what you want as private rooms.

 

Surely this is behaving like the people we so despise...trying to form cliques of old power. Since the forum admins have access to IP addresses why not allow freedom of speech until such time as someone violates forum privilege...
