What happened to the tie down thread???
I cannot divulge Private Messages,I guess I just have more faith in the "rank and file" of this group to be able to deal with "trolls" and not have "big brother" decide who is a "troll"!
Where is the violin emojiBeing a moderator isn't fun, now try doing this job on 3 forums and keeping it clean and civil. There's no medals or certificates for doing this job its voluntary.
Imagine taking charge of a forum that has been decimated by spam and cleaning it up to grow the membership. Not fun at all weeding out the problems, spending days going through the membership to find the spammers, removing spam blogs and posts, going through IPs for dirty ones and email addresses and you do this all on 'YOUR' time to make forums enjoyable for others. I could do better things with my time, but I too am a member just like you and I really don't want to read posts about diet pills or making my computer faster or bad behavior.
