Re: Politics and Moderation

While I hold some pretty strong political views, there are forums for that type of thing. This forum is for people who love sailing, a common bond that overcomes political disagreements. If one wishes to argue politics that are a multitude of forums that would welcome the discourse.

Re: Politics and Moderation

I'll echo all the others' praise of the moderators. This is one ofthe few sites that actually has decorum. The posters tend to police themselves, as is expected in polite society. When that fails, the moderators are quick to step in and do so in reasonable way.

Asking folks to remove inflammatory signature lines is more than reasonable, IMHO.

Why is everyone so mean to me?? I am simply the most humble, nicest (and best looking and smartest) male moderator on this forum.

When I read something like that, it makes me want to post something nasty in TDW's signature line while he is asleep.

Wait. I say something mean to you and one of the other mods pays the consequences? Nice. I'd have aimed some darts long ago had I known.

Re: Politics and Moderation

Some good laughs in this thread... Having recently been both a sinner and a saint in the mods' opinion in a controversial thread, I truly appreciate how they handle difficult issues here. Compared to CF, where the mods believe they can do no wrong, and ACT THAT WAY, SN is a much more enjoyable place to hang. Special thanks to Faster, for whom I have apparently been more than a handful in my last couple of outings. I promise I'll try harder. [edit: I don't promise I'll succeed].

Re: Politics and Moderation

I've yet to understand the thinking that "off topic" means one can, and should, ignore manners, civility, and general decorum.

Re: Politics and Moderation

Mods,

I believe, in vBulletin, you can easily fix any problem signatures by clicking on the users name. When the drop down appears you should see BAN, EDIT SIGNATURE etc... Simple as that... It would be nice if members would do it on their own, to avoid issues, but that does not always happen.

Thanks for all you do, I know the pay is not commensurate...
