    I now can recall why I stopped visiting the forums as often as I use to, or at least for a while, at all.

    Gone are the frivolous days of word association, the heinous “the person below me”, or the intolerable whatever’s next I suppose. I suppose these thread take up to much server space. I suppose they are not as inflammatory as the almighty “evo” Thread…., oh wait I’d better spell it evolution before I’m corrected, or “what do you believe” thread. Sorry I just don’t see how one can be put above the others, except in the elitist world of the moderator. I can understand needing moderation because of the ages represented here. I understand the need for a safe forum environment, and wholesome postings. I don’t understand locking a topic because it gets on you’re nerve, and the good old “because I can” mentality. It is this very thing that has turned away many members, and most of us know who they are. People come here for conversation, recreation and relaxation. But if soooo many of the reasons you visit these forums are stripped away, why come at all.

    But hey, this happens on every forum and it dies out..

    But it's no biggie if it's in just one forum area, cause theres always the others to post in [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    yea it seems you can't disagree or its locked and you're warned. I got warned for saying "Tee Hee" can you beleive that?

    Thats why I almost never post here, that doesn't mean I don't read it though. I just post in the business areas where they talk about what this site is meant for. Seems everyone here is way to sensitive when it comes to non cp related discussions.

    Yea, I notice favoritism a lot as well! I think some people take moderating a lil too seriously [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] I mean if someone said "I hate *enter member name here*" then theyd be warned or banned.. but in other forums it would go unnoticed

    Or the minefield.. Because that's exactly what it is... tread lightly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    But hey, its a privately owned forum.. They can do what they wish. But that doesn't mean members are going to flock here.

    I miss the days that jaie was here...

    And they call us names too, but when WE call names, its into the patty wagon for us [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    However, a few mods still exist that are pretty good [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
