conflict of interest

I think there is a clear conflict of interest between people being moderators on the one hand and at the same time being active contributors.

the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function-

I think they do an excellent job.......

I think that every time you complain about the moderators, god kills a kitten.

The only places I've seen where mods were not active contributors were places where the mods were paid. Since this is not a corporate site designed to advertise a TV station or sell substandard beer, I don't think that's an option here.

BTW, did I miss something?

Unfortunate you feel that way, albertzz ... my suggestion is to take it up with the owner of the board, Andem.

I suspect this comes out of my disagreeing with you in the same sex marriage post.

A kitten Rev? At least it's not a puppy!

Thanks for the support from all of you ... we do our best to wear both hats without bias.

Sorry, it's not a big deal. I took issue with the way someone replied to me (it was more of a dismissive non-reply) and so I PM'd them with a "concerned emoticon" and was prompltly told to never PM that again as they attached MODERATOR to it in an ominous 'i have power over you" kind of way. It was just...unpleasant.

Ok, wasn't me. Not my business. Between you, them and Andem.

Well there's only 3 moderators on right now, and whereas I may respond to your attitude in such terms, I didn't, and I don't think that either Peapod or Cosmo would respond to you in that manner...

So I'm calling bull****, unless you'd like to post proof of your allegations...

Don't you ever pm me again, with that nonsense.

moderator



But that's NOT what this topic was supposed to be about. It was supposed to be about how I think it's ridiculous that moderators can LORD their moderator powers over you when you haven't actually done anything wrong, when you're just in disagreement.

anyway, rev is right and you guys and gals work hard for free. I started this post when I was annoyed. It's not a big deal. I'm letting it go and would delete this thread if I could. Sorry.

No actually I clearly wrote that I PMd you first with my nonsense. I'm sorry you can't read. I'm also sorry that you have the professionalism that one can expect from someone who is doing their job for free. I'm also sorry I've been a tightwad, but seeing as you're a *deleted* I don't really care

Isn't posting a pm against rules or something?

Anyway, telling someone to get lost is hardly lording power.


And Pea, since you asked, I'll take a chocolate covered sussie!

God's just packing those kittens into a burlap sack and heading to the river. You are responsible for a virtual faith-based feline genocide Albertzz.

I don't know Jay. I'm a non violent person for the most part. Except for when animals are involved. I then turn into the human equivalent of Momma Bear......

Don't make me go momma bear!!!!!!!!!!it's ugly and messy.

It's all up to you Dear...if you bash a Mod...God kills one kitten. I know I will be on my best behavior...will you?

well, I've not bashed a mod ever.....however...I might still need to take out my anger at the s.o.b who does and causes the death to innocent kittens.

I just don't know how I'll be able to let something as horrendous as that slide.....
