Bring back Signature Lines!!
Looks like some folks knew what was coming but played it coy.
I think we all know why they created monitors- remember that racist jerk who posted all over the forum on a Friday and his stuff stayed up all weekend? The Sunnis on Calvert Street probably had a coronary when they saw that. And lo, the mods sprouted forth like so much ear hair so they could watch over the forums whilst the Sunnis were at rest.
I thought then, and I think now, a poster cannot be a moderator. A man cannot serve two masters. Whose face is on this coin? Then render unto the Sun Forum what is the Sun's, and keep thine own views off the forum.
Interesting re-read of one of my favorites...
ah...definitely a good one!
It only took them four years from when I wished it but you finally have to pay if you want to play.
It's kind of interesting to see how many posters have bailed on the board (voluntarily or otherwise).
Most forums that you join will have rules and "owner" of the site makes them and chooses who enforces them. A thread on the other forum has already been locked. That's the owner's right and I don't feel the need to gripe about it. But, that's also the reason that I will likely pay to play here. I think that if we have to pay for it many of us will be more careful. Or, it could be that some of think that because we pay for it we should be able to conduct ourselves as we wish. Eeesh. Who knows? The world is filled with rules that we can choose to obey or not, some that we think are good; others that we think are bad. I tend to break rules so I know that there are consequences for doing so.
one thousand percent agreed.
And don't forget about the chiclets.Originally Posted by David
