Nooooo "crossing" guards


When I was in grade school, in the early 60s, girls were not allowed to be 'crossing guards'---in fact we called them 'Patrol Boys'<<< Some of those boys were very nice and went out of their way to 'protect and serve'---Others were 'bullies in training' throwing their weight around, taunting the young ones. I still harbor a fantasy of getting back at one boy in particular---would love to kick him in the shin with the spiked-edge of my figure skates.

He ended up marrying a real sweet girl from my graduating class. Heard later that he liked to beat on her. She was maybe 97 lbs soaking wet. Grrrrrr<<<<

^^^^I was a crossing guard at my elementary school.
Had this really cool white belt.
Got to jump out in front of cars and make them stop.
It was very empowering.

Would have loved to have that job<<<

I was Patrol Boy. I liked the yellow raincoats with the hoods we got to wear.

Sticks and stones people.

If there needs to be censorship for the thin-skinned alleged adults.... why bother.
Grow a set people.
This overly sensitive society is embarrassing.

No. Back in the old days of POF your last five posts were listed at the bottom of your profile. Now a person would have to know the forums even existed and then just do a username search over here to read posts.


Too bad that feature doesn't still exist

Why would you want that at the bottom of your profile? I wouldn't want my discussions there!

I wouldn't say anything in the forums that I wouldn't say in person. Seeing what a person had posted usually gave me a better idea if I wanted to respond to an email than the profile did.

Personally I don't miss certain moderators. There was a women moderator from North Carolina who started what I thought was a vendetta thread against one of her past encounters and when negative comments were made about her thread she started deleting messages that didn't ring true to her narrative. My personal opinion was that she abused her status as a moderator.

Ontheother, I say things I stand behind, but I am cavalier with what I say, and sometimes I'm just kidding around based on who I'm responding to. If I was actively dating online, I would reign in my comments if they would be seen on my profile☺

I'm confused, if there are no moderators, who falsely reported my profile picture as not being me?

There are no moderators there are no moderators there are no mods there is no mods we have no mods...……….THERE is the occasional admin staff who pay attention once in a great while, to someone's complaint.. THEY can send you a message.

Most people would tailor their posts with the idea of it being on their profile. I know I would.

There have always been mods here... they are just not here 24 and 7. The mods are often responsible for terminations, but so too are the mods responsible for allowing the animal members to report and terminate profiles.

I think years ago, the Mods convinced the membership that there would be no more moderation...but they lied....if you followed along with some of the threads, only the mods could have deleted individual messages like they sometimes did. Tholian Reprobate, one of the mods here, has a colored crayon to highlight in blue questions and answers.

Back when this was POF, it decided it did not want the expense of moderating the board with adults, so it allowed children, like Tholian, to moderate....what we have is a real mess and the worst moderating in the history of the internet. Very sad.

I dont recall that person...I just remember that loads of very cool members were being thrown off of here left and right. People who had been her for years were vanishing for weeks on end. I just wondered how this could happen without someone able to close down accounts...and seemed to be doing so, dozens and dozens of them for reasons that were not clear to most people.

BombayBeach…
When you scroll to the bottom of anyones profile, there is a spot where it says Report User...a number of reasons come up. You have to be logged in on the dating side...I believe.
Imo what started it all was a man TallIQ….would message others and get them to gang up to report someone he disagreed with. With enough "reports" the system deletes the profile.

So, now with this information out....groups/gangs were formed behind closed doors to eliminate others.
Anyone that disagreed with them or called them out was a target.
People making sock puppets(phoney profiles) like Blonde Angel, for one. There's a few with multiple profiles.
This is how people are removed.
I have seen no evidence of any moderators for the last few years.
However,...it is curious how that one person can highlight posts.

Was this board better with moderators? I can't really say for sure. Everything in moderation, Is a saying I've heard before.


But restraining ones thoughts and opinions, is not what a public forum is for.... Or, is it?

If we all agreed then there'd be no need for a way to check and express what others are thinking.

And also, no way to respond with opinions/thoughts/facts of our own.

Moderation? It just represents another rule or law. Which, is there to protect everyone or so I've heard. But, listening to other's thoughts on this matter is indeed mind stimulating.

Joker.........Thorian Reprobate....Joker Reprobate...what's in a Name LOL...

Beautiful color crayons they give you at Match....... do they give you pink and red too or just light blue?

Keep working at it...you are only a child...but someday you will grow up and join the adult world. But try to find a better non-paying internship next time...playing with Crayons....not sure how that is going to look on your resume.
