Earl..... I don't think I have ever come on and said "I am a moderator and if you don't listen you will suffer my wrath.. so obey the rules lowly citizens..". lol... I've tried to do my thing as low key as possible because I am not any different than you.. except I have the job of cleaning up "stuff" that happens..
Well, we are told to explain ourselves when moving a post or editing something out...... why....????
Well that leads to your last sentence that i'm going to adress... I used to do just that... if I found something that was unsatisfactory and against policies we were told by Tom to adhere to [NOT some stuff we made up because we thingk we are Gods
] i'd delete and it not say anything to the person who posted it... mainly because I don't have time for drama... well wholly phuck that created a whole nuther sh*t storm b/c then i'd be getting multiple PMs from unhappy people because a topic was removed that was indeed offensive to against Toms policies we were told to adhere to, but no explanation was left behind and the people involved were not notified as to why....
Can't please everyone and when I agreed to be a mod I agreed to what Tom asked to do... if that offends people then so be it. I have tried to be as tactful and polite as possible.
Earl, If you would like to step up and take my place i'd be willing to give it up due to how busy I have been. I'll still post here when I have time, but IMO you are a calm voice of reason and would make a good mod, and if you think you can do it how it should be done shoot a PM to Tom, because lately I am sure I have missed stuff I should have deleted [like the ass bothering Cloudy - I like Cloudy] simply because this is very busy time for me, so you'd be doing me a favor if you took my spot and I think you are a good guy for it b/c you are so level headed
