You can report her to the webmaster goil but you'd be better off blocking her posts in the meantime. To be honest, if Sheena wants to be perceived as a complete dick then that's her problem. Don't lower yourself to that level goil. You're a far better person than she is which is probably why she's stalking you.

Tally and gg are addicted to ego gratification because of poor awareness and denial of responsibility. They hate "mirrors" because their social masks are transparent.

By contrast promoting the mistreatment of animals is not debased? Etiquette is sacrificed in service of opposition to cruelty and in support of moral principles. Or you avoid honor behind the skirts of social niceties.

This forum has no sense of community. Maybe if it had some moderators creating order and limiting chaos it would be better. :2cents:

Lots of posters seem to try to do that from time to time, myself included and it goes no where. To have a functioning community you need the person who runs the site posting alongside of others. That will not happen, so it is at a standstill.

Previous statement of accusation towards you reversed.

Sheena don't make us rain down harassment as you have so done to our other members, we might make you cry.
Same to you Blackberryprickly.

Tal wrote:Snufkin - the former DM moderators were all adults. They were all of them in their 30s. One of the main problems they faced (and I've seen this on other moderated forums as well) is that they didn't always agree on what should be removed and what shouldn't. One of them wanted to remove any sigs that contained words she interpreted as "rude" while the others thought that this was too much censorship. There were other issues as well particularly when someone who was a close forum buddy to the mods did the wrong thing but was let off. Meanwhile, someone who was largely disliked would be banned quick smart. Mods are only human and don't like to upset their friends anymore than the rest of us and it's not always possible to separate our feelings from the role we undertake. Besides it's not like mods get paid or any other real benefits for what they do. That's a lot of crap to put up with for no return.

Moderating is all about learning to compromise and just work as a team.

Instead of complaining I'll just admit I was wrong about moderators.

Please clean up this site.

You're being facetious again aren't you. I'll moderate you if you like but I refuse to allow you to moderate me.

So there. :loony:

My one question about this is why is there 50 or so posts dedicated towards an increasingly off topic argument. I respect the freedom of speech, but I prefer to see arguments carried out in a factual and organized manner. That way its more thought provoking and draws more attention towards itself. I stopped reading after the 10th post of tasteless arguments. More often than not this form of unordered and potentially vulgar text based bashing tends to just anger the opposing side more, that and if you take the time to make a clear persuasive argument it makes the victory all that more complete and the losing side tends to feel better about having lost. I personally have no plans on revisiting this particular topic in the future but I hope people will have more to say about my post than a grammatically incorrect line insulting my intellect, appearance, rationale due to a simple disagreement over what I have said.

Agree.


However. Nobody has done anything about M.Johnson or whatever. he stole my E-mail and disrespected me....to no degree. He needs to be banned. Moderators have power like that to keep things in order. Imagine the world without cops or government. just the people "Monderating themselves pretty well"

Yeah it would be kind of nice to have Moderator(s) who stop threads or enforce rules, warn or explain to the poster(s) that there crossing a line, as there is a lot of spam or just junk said that not true, or taken too far... as gossip travels faster than truth here, and so when things get cut or stopped.. well it tends to travel some place else... so you have to have some sort of order. Though if I were to rate this site with the problem it would be so-so and that there is room for improvement, as I would say just elect a couple posters who think could help run the community for a set time (not more than a year)... words from people you respect in a community go farther than rules in life, at least that is my :2cents:

I remember way back when, like 8 years ago, Dreammoods had forum moderators and woah did it cause a lot of drama. The webmaster did seem to pick them randomly, they abused their power, locking threads and editing posts they didn't agree with. This angered a lot of members, and so the webmaster stripped their moderator privilliages.
Dreammoods didn't really need moderators back then, however I think the webmaster should reconsider this option.
Oh well
Whatever
