Don't forget how he was a cop, a lieutenant as a matter of fact, and we needed to bow down to him as lowly civilians. Yeah...I called my buddy, a Trooper in the same state, who had no idea who he was because he wasn't in their system... I was holding on to that one just in case, but he beat feet.You're being too nice. OO pissing and moaning about the staff here is also the reason that some douche got sent over as a fully empowered mod. He showed up, white-knighted himself, blabbed on about how many other forums he was a mod for, ignored our policies and procedures of conduct and ethics for staff, then effed of in a sulk after being told that 1) we didn't want him or need him, and 2) he still has to follow the rules here just like the rest of us.
Well what had happened was someone went and cried to another Admin on another forum and said this place was totally in shambles and Kirk and I were being completely overwhelmed and overrun by certain forumites who refused to control themselves. So said Admin took ALL the messages to the Evil Overlords and volunteered to "save" us from the rule breakers. So they agreed and what happened happened.I guess I totally missed all the fun.
What I am shocked about is that someone external can just be given admin power without anyone here having a say in it.
But I guess that’s what comes from using a multi-forum backend that “we” don’t own.
I live in the high desert plains of SE Colorado. There are no hills, just steppes, buttes, arroyos, and gullies. Things gets measured by time or distance out here because there are no landmarks...You are still talk in city terms. Here in the country that is just over the hill in Las Animas.
We tanked back in April/May. Posting and reactions were cut in half, and active members dropped by 25%
...I'll even call it like it is. Without SWAGZ getting shredded on the daily and cicpup trying to run off newbz between flopping his pork sword in Kirk's cornflakes every chance he got....we're a little bit slower.
Moonz is busy getting banned on FB while running not one but two alter egos in addition to his main, and the mole is back underground for whatever reason...
Funny thing. I never tried to run them off (unlike others). I just enjoyed poking them with a sharp stick every once in awhile. As for Kirk? All is forgotten on my end. Dunno if he holds grudges for a year or not?
