Me too, this is pretty disappointing.
Aye, one or two comedians among them for sure.
Always happy to help if necessary!

Sometimes I do wonder why we are allowed.
@GrandAdmiralJello I mod therefore I am?
I've written the title of this thread out, word for word, in my diary more times than my heart could bear to recount.
Many of us are kind, this is true. Many of us, however, are not so weak, but are as meanspirited and intolerant as you will find. For us, silencing your voice and shouting over it with our own, lobbing hand grenades into discussions to start flame wars, and banning indiscriminately and needlessly, is how we get our sick kicks. Don't let that stop you from contacting us, however! The truth is, most of us loathe each other down to our hair follicles, and constantly plot to undermine each other's authority. If you come to us with a complaint about another moderator, please believe that this is better than opening a Christmas present on Thanksgiving to find a sack of our favorite Halloween candy: you'll simply be providing us with more fuel to throw on the fire, and oh, do we love to watch it burn.
Yes, exactly. We're fans first, moderators second, and here to help always.
Edit: Technical issues.
How about those Maple Leafs?
I'll ban you for reminding me how the Leafs disappoint me year after year. Don't think I won't do it.
We all call you Bob Efarte behind your back, so it's not like we are not trying.
Wait, yours are only occasional?
Thank you for the reply. Since yesterday I see that the seriousness of my concern was addressed in a few responses. I have decided since that too only participate in one thread actively and avoid all other forums; thus also avoiding the Moderator this question was in reference too.
Surprisingly to some probably, today I sent a moderator a PM expressing my appreciation for them.
While I am sorry you feel need to avoid entire sections of the forums to avoid specific people, I do hope you can recognize that the amount of staff who posted slightly silly things in here was an effort to show you we really do not take ourselves too seriously. Once your questions were answered, we had no problem making ourselves look absurd.
Really, though... as mentioned in here already, if you have specific concerns about a specific mod, and you don't want to approach other mods about it, you should approach one of the three admins about it instead. Avoiding whole sections of the site is not really the best solution.
I will be doing that in short order, right now I’m appreciating the forum I’m currently participating in enthusiastically.
This I can agree with. Especially @A Chorus of Disapproval and @cubman987 (no agenda here, just throwing out a couple of shout-outs). You're not going to like every single mod, just like you won't like every single person you interact with (speaking from experience here) - and you know what, that's OK. It's human nature. Just try your best to be respectful in the meantime.
But there will always be someone around here who will be willing to speak with you in a kind manner. I've been here since 2009 and that's been the case throughout all these years.
Mods here aren't so bad, at least they will engage with you.
One or two with a chip on their shoulder, but generally they are okay.
The lad from Sweden is probably about the best of the lot.
I dunno, I've heard terrible things about him.
Don’t you be getting above yourself now. That compliment is one more than the wife has had this year!
@LAJ_FETT I have sent you a detailed PM about the matter.
Phew. At least it isn't about LAJ. She's a saint.
@Ben-Solo - Hopefully, you can trust to leave the situation in her hands and focus on posting about stuff that brings you some joy until it's all resolved for you.
It’s not you either, I actually really enjoy your Jedi Mastery of the forums.
Why, thank you. I try... try... to be lighthearted about most topics, even when I seem to be posting serious points. I'm only a hard@$$ to horrid people who deserve constant berating, like @Bob Effette and my grandmother.
