I miss Glutes. I started researching his older posts and came to this in response to his bickering with JJ:

 

Cooper

Super Moderator

 

 

Seriously? After I locked the other "Are You Tired of..." thread and Daddy put up the pizza warning. You want to go at this again?

 

Shortly after reading that post, my thoughts turned to:

 

1. Why do we need a "Super Moderator" for anything other than violations such as stalking or divulging personal information? Serious stuff.

2. Why do threads need to be locked for bickering, and why does it bother so many adults here so much? If you are a fully formed adult, you can easily ignore posters and subjects that bother, offend or bore.

3. How can an adult take such offense and threaten to "notify the moderator" when someone assaults their online persona with an avatar, via a moniker?

4. How can grown men (30ish to 100) call for an anonymous man that goes by "Daddy" to "send a pizza" to spare further pain?

 

Gentlemen, we hire strangers to accompany us to bed, on trips, to our hotel and homes. Toughen up, or the next fisting session could go wrong, and there will be no Cooper or pizza to save you.

I agree with both citylaw and doitb4ugo. When you come here, you are expected to play by the rules established. On the other hand, the material in the forum is all created by the users. So it would stand to reason that they should have some input into the functioning of the message center, no? And the fact is that we are an opinionated bunch, constantly speaking out. For those who not remember, there was a group of people who did not like the constraints of the message center and started their own. It became one of the nastiest sites ever and eventually collapsed under its own nastiness. So, would you like a few rules and some moderation, or would you like a free for all? There seems to be no middle ground.

I'm curious - what entitles to dicatate behavior & code of conduct here?

 

We hire escorts for FUN, generally.

 

Basically, you want the Message Forum to be what YOU want it to be. But the Owner gets to make the rules and appoint the Moderators to enforce them, and we all choose to abide by them or suffer the consequences.

 

Speaking for myself - the bickering (as differentiated from civil discussions and disgreement) interferes with my enjoyment of the board. Obviously that isn't true for everyone, but it IS true for a significant number of posters, I think. And the VALUE of the information shared here is diminished when you have to winnow it out from the chaff of personal squabbles.

I assume you meant to ask "what entitles (me) to dictate behavior..?" I am not dictating anything. I asked 4 questions.

Since 2004 I have noticed that bickering burns itself out when ignored. Members are able to moderate on their own for the most part.

It only takes 2 to keep it going.

I agree that it's the owners site his rules. My personal opinion I'm not a fan of time outs. I'm a grown ass man not a 2 year old child that goes into the time out corner until mommy or daddy says you can return to play Time. I personally would rather be banned completely if ever in that circumstance. And I personally would never return too a site after a time out. Speaking for myself it's a pride thing

Yes, I am a poor typist and tend not to proofread before posting. :(

 

And 'dictate' was probably too strong a term (except for you final sentence: Toughen up, or the next fisting session could go wrong, and there will be no Cooper or pizza to save you.

 

Do you honesstly feel that there is no downside to the bickering?

I wasn't busting balls.

That was meant to be funny as well as a means of bringing the "A" back into adult.

You mean "honestly?" I was busting balls there :) Downside, not really.

And the two will quit when everybody becomes bored and stops paying attention. Or, in my case, when my wisdom and logic overwhelms the opponent:)

 

So, you see the bickering as attention-seeking performance rather than competition?

 

How do you know when no one is paying attention? is it when no one is asking you to stop?

I'll work on my proof-reading and you can work on your HTML tagging. ;)

 

And I think we'll continue to disagree on what constitutes 'adult' behavior.

I see the bickering as attention seeking when the parties involved stop debating and defending, and resort to personal attacks. In my Sean Caden thread, I never resorted to nastiness (at least not that nasty) yet I argued my point pretty effectively.
