I Could never be a Moderator because I LOVE all the debating, It really doesn't bother me when people get a little rude, cause someone else will just come back & try to win them over intellectually. I kinda get a charge out of it all. So I would SUCK as a Mod, never getting rid of the flaming posts.

Never wonder if I report you, cause I wouldn't report anyone. Drama on the forums makes it a little fun. I know , I know, this is not a nice example to have, but sometimes I think they are a little too strict. Just my opionion.
I agree, and I sometimes feel that debates and peoples opinions are taken the wrong way. I don't think everything that is reported should be deleted.

Syrum,

TAM has its own rules, based on my observation, they won't let any individuals influence them!

I think the careful moderation of this forum is one reason it is so active. People come to the forum for help or to work out some demons standing in the way of a having a better relationship. the number of new people who stay and work out problems and remain to help others I think is a testament to the quality of the moderation.

Compliments to the moderators, your work and dedication is greatly appreciated. )

This is good ^^^^ I really don't see where the Mods here are too biased with their views. It is less about what you say & feel, but more to do with Hi-jacking (I have had posts deleted for this & responding to hi-jacks), run away chat room type responses -or if one is outrightly insulting another "personally", instead of respectively disagreeing with their Views.

This is VERY fair really- and needed.

And then some of us can get a little carried away in the "naughtiness" department. Greenpearl's one time banning, that was simply a classic! I am still laughing! Hey, to me, that is a huge step above being banned for being obnoxious to other posters. Ha ha

Moderation is needed on any successful Forum, or it is a disaster. My husband used to belong to a John Deere Yahoo group & some irate fundamentalist Jihadist was posting rampantly how all Americans are going to DIE, can you imagine!

Another thing I love & appreciate here is they allow internet links, and photos if we want to add one. Many forums don't - and that is just a shame.

There are times I have read things here & my jaw drops, but yet I am intrigued. My feeling is - with every disgrunted angry poster, there is a STORY behind those words, most are speaking out of some pain. I am the type who does not take this personally, but finds it a "challenge" to uncover the good somehow, I think we all have some good in us.

I also feel we can learn from our harshest critics at times. But yeah, we should refrain from personal attacks. THat is to the Mods discretion. They do their job well .

It leaves a good memory for us!

My husband and I always laugh when we mention it again!

If they hadn't banned me, it wouldn't have been this funny!



I have been called many names( A sexist ninny, a man hater, a dumb, a slave, mafia...............) because I am active and I have a totally different opinion from a lot of posters here, sometimes I puzzled a lot why they got angry and they had to call me names, I puzzle a lot why they are so sensitive about certain words. I never tried to insult anybody, I post posts for everybody to read, it is my opinion, and a random poster would get angry and call me out. I am very glad that TAM try to restrict people with their insulting words.

I don't get upset with people if they have a different opinion.

I hate all the name calling! But I know if I want to be vocal, this is something I have to face. Or I will just be quiet!

To add on to Mommy's post ...

Content removed by mods is not always, or only, reported content.

Posts that are discovered and deemed against forum guidelines will be removed ... this may or may not result in a warning or a ban.

I've threatened to eat someone on the board.

And no - it wasn't in the sex forums.

Will I get banned?

I mod a board on a completely different topic and if I ban someone it's for eternity.

But - I'm not sure that there is any "rule" here about eating people.

I'm probably not actually going to go through with it - but I don't really want "him" to know that just yet.

Now - if I had threatened to "eat" a woman on the Sex forums openly, I'm guessing I'd be gone by now!!!
