aaah, so it highlights the ignored user  :o

Kind of ironic.

I know all forum personalities are not necessarily the same as the guy you have a beer with.  I would like to believe if one selects a user, for example 2SD, and read only those posts, out of the thread context, that one would see some value added to the enjoyment experience of other forum users.  Be it advice, support or getting pleasure out of what someone has shared.

Now, if one takes Danie's posts - and what a big post count that is - and look for value, taunting of others or disruption of threads and the enjoyment thereof being influenced, seems to be the theme.  Does it make YOU proud to be part of WD Danie?

p.s.  This is not Danie bashing, he has nominated himself as an example.  Like with BMW bashing, I couldn't give a fuck either way.  In naming the mods as not doing any moderating, I was hoping that maybe they would collectively start taking the responsibility seriously.  It is like prefects that want the badge and a bit of cred, but without actually realizing there is a responsibility.  I can only do so much to ignore R&P and try to use the ignore function as supplied, even if it still does not work. 

Would I go take a ride with Dan?  Sure, if he can keep up  ;)  Do I want to see his posts, sadly no.

Well I COMPLETELY disagree!

There is nothing so dead or uninteresting as an over-moderated forum!
I'm not going to mention examples  :patch:

I have to agree.... it seems he is badly in need of attention..... of any kind
Repeating what he has repeated a million times before - like a little lapdog, doing the same trick that people used to find amusing

Applied moderation need not be excessive.  Keeping topics on topic and applying some order is fine. I already live in a society ruled by anarchy, the forum can remain civilized.

You have not struck me as being rude, so don't worry.  ;)

I had a strong opinion when the guys asked for a porn thread, the reason was that if I introduced people to the forum I didn't want to feel embarrased by crude content. I feel no hesitation to direct people to advrider or thumpertalk if there is a relevant thread. It would be pointless to direct a foreigner onto a thread here at the moment when the subject looses relevance after 5 or 6 posts and the class clowns take over. If you are cool with that, no problem.  The forum means different things for us all.

The reason the forum has local mods, is to keep the topical threads on topic and to declutter when necessary. I.e. sometimes there is value in letting a discussion run its course, but when it goes off topic, to pull it back and do some cleanup.

Kakpraat threads are what they are, full of kakpraat. That is one thing that still makes this forum a fun place to visit, for many. There are boards for that too.

If you see a useful thread's value being degraded, please report it. I don't believe any mod has the time to sit & refresh the forum pages to spot misdemeanors and possible irritations. Everyone has day jobs.

Dankie Danie.  Ten minste het jy nie iets gesÍ oor die BMW gedeelte nie.   :imaposer:
