I've always preferred to have a small team of moderators. We may have more in the future, but I'm not planning to recruit any in the short term. Thanks for the thought though

Personally, if I wasn't happy here I'd feck off. Not hang around hopingwaiting for another round of abuse & humiliation, unless I liked it
But then again, if I didn't get offended at every slight, what would I have talk about on BaceFook
aye that's it ... Every where I go charges for an old bag called poly so it's good you can come here and get him for free

Tbh i wonder how many times the message in this thread can be raised and ignored by those ' with the power '

I think if it the message keeps being raised and dismissed as ' not being real ' the forum will only ever be in decline.

There are far more options out there nowadays for boaters to interact.

Yet a) you're still here and b) the forum is showing no sign of decline. It's a mysterious world sometimes

i'm still trying to figure out where the "rude" was in the post that spawned this discussion. I'm American and I wouldn't have been insulted and you know how much more thin skinned we are...

I have to say that I feel Rib-net is being over modulated and some threads are just being closed off for the sake of someone exercising some power.Its almost getting to the point where the mods should have Rib-net all to themselves!
