Well at least I now know what the topic is all about. I had wondered at the UK forums thing myself, and I try to decide based on the topic if anything I have to say can help the poster, or if it is just noise in the machine and worthless to anyone , IE, My ego is larger than the box I put it in, so it spilled out on the floor and had to be wiped up.

I try to preform brevity in motion of pixels to eyeballs to brain, while writing, so I do it also in my advice, noise never helps get to the kernal.

Not that you care or anything, I just want to blatantly waste your time by making excuses...I mean, explaining my actions


My beer cozie says "Just because I don't care, doesn't mean that I don't understand".


sometimes I give a short answer or explain why I believe a thread will be deleted...and then vote for it.


Minimum limits are only imposed upon members who aren't cluing in on proper
posting procedure.

As soon as I created my profile I had this restriction in place, from the first post. No previous chatting, one liners etc.

Initially, I believed this was something for "newbies". It does become frustrating when all you have to say can be summed up in one brief statement, especially since there was no pre-existing chat or short posts.

Just checked your history, there seems to still be chat.

I agree with undateable..............people are being unexplainably and unfairly treated on this site.

I've even noticed members humbling themselves when communicating with some of these Monitors... beyond polite manners, because they fear them...it's ridiculous.

The .."it is our ball and if you don't like it we are taking our ball home" approach is lame.

Moderators are developing attitudes towards members and treating them differently than other members that are more politically palatable for them.

Nothing more than cyber censorship.

Moderators that are doing this are ruining the site, some are even experiencing some type of delusions of grandeur that they are extraordinary beings or something.

Guarantee if you post something within the “so-called” rules, that is not appreciated by a particular Monitor, that post will be deleted and you will become marked.

Just a fact

Let's see, hmmmm?

One of your posts -



What is with MANY, MANY guys being shallow????

I'm confused with the site rules....where is the moderator here????????Why aren't the rules applied equally?


Did it occur to you to let a moderator know?

The fine Art of Generalization aside, please tell me exactly what I do to induce fear?

What is it that I do that makes it ridiculous?

Seeing to it that the rules and format of the Forums are applied?


The .."it is our ball and if you don't like it we are taking our ball home" approach is lame.

when I got back and found the limited character rule in place there was no explanation


I think you will find that some things are considered privileges and when you go to banned camp for a few days those privileges must be re-earned.

Sort of resets the clock in a way. Privileges are tied to not only time but performance.
