I don't think anyone mentioned admins abusing their positions, just suggesting that admins should be seen as being cleaner than clean not abusive towards people who are genuinely trying to help or ask for it.

As an engineer in the navy for over 22 years I don't profess to being an office walla unless you count the cramped offices in frigates? And that also helps in being hardy as there's no bigger or harsh p1ss taking than goes on there, but being abusive towards someone you don't know is taking it a bit far.

Well so nice to see you have returned to the fold This forum has missed your slant on things so I hope you stick around.

Funny that Wilk asked about JSP I oftened wondered how he was as he was one of the members on here that you could trust. I know his health wasn't to good when he signed of the forum so if you see him or are talking please pass on my regards..............he's missed on here

It was only on facebook I spoke to him and he's gone from there now.
From what I could gather he had up sticks and set himself up a new life and was getting on fine

I might stick around lol, I sold my SR4 ages ago and naturally stopped using the forum.
Used to have some good crack, hope that hasn't gone?

I didn't hear anyone accusing Admins of abusing their positions either as I couldn't hear over the general background whining that was taking place. I can't recall a single case of a member asking for help and being "abused" or even mocked by an Admin (or any other member of RIBnet for that matter).

"Cleaner than clean" - WTF? Am I in an UK election campaign now? Bugger that, I'd rather play piano in a whore house.

For one of "Brutain's hardy sons", you seem to take it all a bit too much to heart. A suggestion from one who has negotiated the currents of RIBnet over the years - go with the flow, you'll get there around the same time as the lads who are paddling upstream...

If people feel that they don't want to post on RIBnet in case someone disagrees with them then that's a shame, but it is OK for people to disagree. If we all thought the same as each other there wouldn't be much discussion going on.

It has always been this way. Have a look at the posting guidelines: General posting guidelines

They have been the same for over a decade, and have been around a lot longer than most of the people posting in this thread!
John,

I think the point is that the "Admins" or "Moderators" (well, one of them) isn't simply "Administering" or "Moderating" but is always the first to disagree with many posts, put in multiple quotes pulling apart posts in a, quite frankly, unpleasant and unnecessary fashion.
A bit like the argumentative bloke down the pub who always has an opinion on something and always has to have the last word.
Isn't the role of a moderator to observe?

I'm on the FB group too but think that ribnet is still a very useful site and won't be leaving it in preference to FB.

Cheers All

I'm glad you're staying. TBH, I hate those "multiple quotes" too. It's the way he uses them to divide up an incoherent rant into it's constituent parts and then obliterates it with raw logic and facts that riles me the most. His biggest drawback is having an IQ like the north face of the Eiger. It just puts sensible people off tackling him. I get that.

I still wouldn't let him drive my RIB though...
