I now come now 90% less here , working 90% less here and will earn 90% less here in short I do not care anymore for this site
let's be friends again you and valerie
This whole situation is DISGUSTING. He made DEMANDS to ban topics HE has discussed probably the most, undermining a moderator in the process, AND shockingly, he got what he wanted!! You would think they would both be best mates by now
Wouldn't it be fun in life if you demanded something and got it right away, so sometimes I wonder is Valerie a moderator or a Genie in a bottle granting wishes, but then I thought Genies grant wishes to everybody, this Genie only grants wishes to Tasman1 - and the very same guy who made us all laugh decided to go communist on us and censor this forum and now he wants to leave the forum and the mess he created when these discussions were CURRENT and ON POINT and were not violating any rules. Other members here made requests, we are still waiting for the wishes to come true - so yeah it's kinda odd, demands a BAN on topics gets it, demands to use sigs in topics, request denied, goes haywire, you know what I DEMAND to win the lottery, I DEMAND to get a job, I DEMAND my old position back, why is nobody granting my wishes.
It's gone from comedy central to a kindergarten tantrum.
As far as the forum, they really shouldn't remove it, it is a good addition to the site and if used properly it could be a great support channel as explained in another topic, because honestly, support here is complete and utter rubbish,
they might not find a mod initially but I'm sure they will find someone, and hopefully Valerie will make sure that new mod applies the no signature rule in topics, but will apply no limits to topics discussed with some guidelines.
It's become RIDICULOUS here. It's like modifying the rules of BOXING, and demanding a BAN on punching
November 3rd is coming soon and the entire world is holding on a very thin rope, it sure will be awkward discussing other bullshit whilst the entire world is in turmoil and unrest of the rest of the re-election, that not only concerns the US but the ENTIRE WORLD.......so yeah, if anything if I made a wish to a Genie in a bottle and it was granted I'd be happy about it.
There have been other high risk topics discussed around here that generated fights, he has never requested a ban on those, BUT he requests bans specifically on politics, because of a particular individual discussed starting with T..... You know I think seriously he's working for Biden's campaign, that's typical Democratic party, instill socialist values.
And now threatens to leave - that's like the guy who puts fires and leaves.........
He asked for the word SCAM to be banned, his wish was granted, he almost acted like he ran this site saying he would ban me if he ran it, when in the contrary sites need people like myself working my arse off daily and committed, and generating site revenues, that's precious traffic, and now he wants to leave it, it's his choice, but don't start fires first and leave
I think Valerie should reverse the decision to ban the topics, at least for the politics one, since only ONE person requested it and see where it goes from there, it's pointless to have a BAN on a topic when the user who made it is no longer posting and no longer cares about this site he once protected like his own. Fair is fair.
Once the CEO leaves the company, it's time for company restructuring and if old structure works, by all means change it.
If topics get out of control, that's what a mod is used for, edit post, lock topic, and if things are very serious and personal at the limit user ban, but why punish the whole population because of 1 reader.
You can't please everybody, and if companies gave in to DEMANDS of the tiny percent of their clients over the majority who thought everything was fine, a lot of companies would go broke - you can't please everybody but ya can't remove that pickle, sardines, chocolate & anchovies sundae just because 1% hate it and 99% love it.
