Not all of them, but the majority of them. Please have a look at the first point in the General Posting Guidelines

Which, given the number of times we've gone over this, I think is more than reasonable. Most sites would have simply banned you permanently after your abusive PM when I asked you to tone it down a while back.

As you seem unable or unwilling to moderate your own posts I'm running out of options. I've explained my reasons, but you continue to battle against me.

John

John, this is a good site, but you are genuinely in danger of killing it. The members instantly know whether the site is 'firing' or not, you don't, you're too close. You're problem is that you let your personal views and opinions influence your moderating, kidding yourself that it's in the best interests of the site. For example, The Leeway thing, you obviously have a problem with the guy's supposed 'splashing'. The thread ran way too long and you let it. It boiled down to Fuller and others having fun tearing Lee apart and him being illequipped to defend himself. It wasn't pretty, especially for new members. You obviously have a problem with me, and from what I've heard of you, I doubt whether there's much danger of you and I becomming drinking buddies. However, I feel that your personal opinion of me is clouding your judgement as to what is good for your site. The SW guys are now off with their own forum and will be interesting to see who follows. Chris

I don't believe that's correct, but I am interested to hear what other people think.

Maybe we just have different views on what's best for the site?

Leeway came onto the forums declaring that he had designed a new rib. He claimed that it was his own work when it was clearly not. He got stick for this. I removed some abusive posts from both sides of the argument, but otherwise left it well alone. I think that's a reasonable approach.

fede has recently shown pictures of the RIB he has designed. When asked about the origins of the hull, he explained his influences and showed the making of the mould. This earnt him respect. Compare and contrast!

I really don't actually, although I am finding this a bit frustrating. If I really had a problem with you I would just have banned you permanently rather than trying to find a way forward.

Just before you posted this I PM'd you an invitation to call me. That still stands.

Oooh, what have you heard? Do tell me more!

Nope. As I explained, it's purely the volume of irrelevant posts that I have the problem with. It's not about you.

That's fine, the internet is a big place and there's room for everyone.

RIBnet is what it is. Nothing has changed here in the way that the site is run, but from time to time there are some people who find it's just not for them. I do my best, but you can't please all the people all the time.

John

Im new here, and find it a fantastic site for info and issues, and the `crak` is just lighthearted fun. So why change it or add something else that has shown so far not to work very well, or perhaps that no one wants?
Maybe some other people in addition to existing moderaters? Just a thought...

Well Ribnet is over 6 years old, so I think JK may be doing something right!

I haven't "moderated" anyone else's posts recently (although, believe it or not, I did remove a dig at Leeway from someone's post yesterday)

If you mean am I "moderating" (or changing) my view on things, then no!
