Meanwhile........................Greaser's Palace is still entertaining the troll. Too bad he isn't the least bit amusing.

Yes, maybe his alter-ego (Audiosteve) will show up and give us some entertainment  ;D  Or maybe we will see Masterwhack's reaction before that  ;D

It's amazing that guys like The Devil and Charlie get moderated, yet they didn't cause any of the problems.

Really? Me thinks even their presence is creating hemorrhoids to "SOS brigade" and crushing their beliefs  ;D

SOS = all SOunds the Same

Some mutinous wag has posted this..

John Curl's Blowtorch preamplifier part III

With supposedly offending posts deleted (evidence removed) willy nilly, a long term discussion amongst many knowledgeable and experienced ones has been closed to the detriment of many due to the the actions of a few, moderators included.

I suggest an experiment ...allow this thread to be self moderating, ie allow the participants to decide who is welcome, and who is not, perhaps by an associated voting system thread.

Posts deemed offensive could be greyed down, but still retained, and the offending member voted out of participation in this thread, if deemed necessary.

There has been a fantastic amount of general and specific information donated in the now closed thread, and to see this generally beneficial thread closed down is to many, offensive.

Seems deleted already.

Plan B might be to not allow moderators to post, except in their official capacity...

...and plan C might be to not allow "triger happy" moderators to moderate... particullary if subject discused exceeds their mental capability.

Since our favorite wine forum has been put in a medically induced coma, this might be of interest.  Emphasis on might.

I see interesting parallels in that link, and in the included links.

Uh................Kryten and Mysterion need to be careful who they associate with. No telling who that trouble-making Dan guy is. (Assumes they are members there.) They may give you infraction points, just for being a known associate of a trouble maker.

Funny thing about that place...................the Mods like to talk........a lot. And they talk to their buddies. Who in turn like to talk to their buddies. Back when some of us had accounts there, we eventually found out all they were doing. None of them could keep their mouth shut, and the same for their buddies. Somehow, all of their private secrets were no longer private. Or secret.

Lucky for us!
"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"
