To be fair, for whatever reason, Clive finally decided stopped with the gross out pics after a year or so of persuading.



Not our quickest turn around, but hey!

No I'm asking your opinion. I mean you know we yahookans post for our lives, literally, and your life, your loved ones lives, your rights, your freedom,(what we have left anyway) to keep you safe from people who want to troll you, give up time with the people who we care the most about, watch our brothers get trolled in front of us and respond to them, have to be there's to their families that daddy ain't posting again. Spent months sometimes years at a time in harshest forums on earth, work 12-18 hours a day for weeks on end, work holidays and weekends, have to maintain a professional appearance and demeanor daily even while sometimes putting up the worst criticism and being accused of being trolls and reposters and then sometime find time for ourselves when possible, if possible. I mean the ONLY reason we are our own forum is because of all the things we do for members who take all the things they have and ability to have them for granted. So I ask you again, have the yahookans not earned their modship?

Sage is retiring? News to me...

For your information, Sage doesn't always get his way. If anyone is guilty of that, it's most likely me.

If anyone thinks that becoming a mod gives instant rights to posting crappy pics and pics of crap, you're sorely mistaken. There are the rest of us mods to go through. Majority rules.

But for anyone really desiring to become a mod, think of this...there's no power here. There's work. Do you think the spammers just ban themselves? We try really hard to keep things fair for everyone.

If you put into context that this is an open forum on the internet, the bickering doesn't seem so bad

This is definitely news to many of those who get moderated, which is hardly anyone, in fact.

For about the last 3 years, we've officially not acted without the consent of 3 mods total.
But we've generally went on consensus when we could muster it.
We had some mods who didn't show up much, so that stopped working.

So we found some worthy people who were also around,
and could help with the new mandate, of 3 mods for a action.

If you want to shit on the perpetrator of the moderation actions, these days,
you're going to need a lot of feces.




As for the 'retiring' comments: Confusion bred confusion......

I posted last week about feeling PERSONALLY confused about this place,
and PERSONALLY, wondering if I fit in.

And those PERSONAL FEELINGS I posed about how PERSONALLY coming around less would effect the right to continue to be an Admin/Mod, and that maybe I should step down.

There is OF COURSE mixed of Mod and Personal.....
And perhaps that is where the confusion set in.
As I get shit on for being ME and a MOD.
(Treating people with respect also makes you a doormat sometimes, on both roles.)

And that's why I took the post down.

I said my intention was to come around less.....
When I said 'walk away', I meant go for longer times away.

All I was doing was thinking about PERSONAL matters,
which of course effect you as a Moderate/Admin here.


So we clear on my 'retirement', clive?

I had personal feelings, that effect that role here.

Sage, I don't think anyone who has taken as many hallucinogens as you can be of healthy body, mind and spirit. I don't say that to troll or for you to take it lightly.

If you respond honestly to this post, I will do you 1 favor in return, at your request within reason.

Hallucinogens are not destructive at all. They only do bad things if you have a pre existing mental condition.

Respectfully and honestly..... did you not just advocate 'eating a bunch of acid', 'like SageTree', like 10 posts ago?

Honestly this is one reason I find you hard to understand,
and maybe don't take that seriously when I am answering.

Now.... How many hallucinogens was it that I've taken?
And what conclusions lead you to that I have problem 'body/mind/spirit'?

Especially since you were also advocating a similar spirituality in your post in this thread as well.

That is like.... HONESTLY straight confusing, Bro.
Or at you advocating people become as '________' as you think I am, unhealthy?



The favour you can do?

Reply to this am make sense of it, because it's like straight flip-flopping from this end, as I read it.

Cheers.

So you say because sage aint posting here every day we need new mods..then in the next breath you say we dont need any moderation..

1) have your cake
2) eat your cake


You can only chose on. Personally im happy with the status quo. Any time ive had a problem ive been able to resolve it directly with orher members..almost everyone here is mature enough for that.

Fair enough. Just so you know, your opinion is not widely shared by the world population. A majority of humans disagree with you.

I can't attempt to have this debate anymore. It's the only reason I'm here. To confront my own demons and conscience with other humans that engage in similar behaviors.

I must confront myself. I think most humans need to go it alone when they have as much confusion as I do.

Don't believe them about mods being all responsibility and no power or fun. Here's a sample of threads from the mod forum that Edward Snowdon emailed me!

how can we deprive Sok of his god given right to post enlightened and life changing opinions?-pharmgirl

This months batch of free cocaine and Xanax for the mods was a little light. Only 5 ounces of blow, is it even worth it anymore?-sagetree

How to dispose of all these dead hookers from the last mod meetup-mothernature

Harry Pothead knows too much, can we still get that polonium from Putin?-Kompressor
