No, I banned him for being abusive. I should have done it last time really, but cut him some slack instead. Hey ho.

somebody got banned and I missed it? Doh, just the thing for a boring day at work, somebody else's pain. Perhaps I'm not paying enough attention and that's why I don't see the issue....

Secret mods don't work. People pick fights with the MIDs public persona, then get banned/deleted/moderated/slapped by mod. You will gain a whole host of 'is xyz Mod3 coz I slagged off xyz and got a ban from Mod3'.

I don't understand what all the fuss is about... if you get a straight and direct answer why is it taken to be rude, some people are diplomatic by nature (like me) and others may come over as being straight laced.... if the latter offends just ignore it or give em some stick " .

The other solution is to feck off.... simples ...

Comparing the mod team to nazis will do the trick on most forums.

I understand the point you are trying to make, but it's a battle you can't win.

There's fook all wrong with modding here .. some folks will always take offence .. sometimes you has to just take a line , and that be that , .. sure I'd rip the arse out of a few more topics .. but I get modded every time

Its the way it is on this forum .. if you dont like it you go else where. Its always a tough decision for those making the call to regulate it , but I'd support what I see, and TBH there are hours of work that go unseen by regular users, that get put in by 'volunteer' mods where often there will be hours of 'off' screen thought go into making a reply to a subject, just to offer reason, or an alternative perspective, so, modding isnt just about banning people, its about moving discussions productively, and generating quality content

right .. I'm off ... somebody mentioned quality content .. the 6 nations thread needs spammed
