    I dont know about anybody else but I seem to be noticing the fact that some users of this board try to call shots like their a moderator or something.

    Its like Im back in grade school or something. You would think with all the post that get on this forum regarding other users telling on another one to the mod team that alone would be considered unecessary spam.

    How can we stick together as peer 2 peer users and fight back against entities like the RIAA when we cant even stick together on a bullentin board.

    Some things should be reported to mods provided they are according to the pertinent subject matter at hand. But to be quite honest, Im not seeing anything of the sort. All I see is a bunch of tattle telling on our fellow board members that really isnt even worth posting on this forum. Im sure the moderators have a big forum to administer but It seems to me that unecessary actions like those of snitches would make that all the more difficult.

    My point is this, moderators should make it very clear that going behind the back of your fellow peer and finding some flaw (whatever it may be) and reporting it in a maliscious way will have no bearing on achieving any type of mod status whatsoever.

    This whistleblowing has got to stop.

    i do not really understand this post. is it a lash out at someone, or are you really upset that people report things they find offensive?
    are the mods not there to see we all do get along a bit better, any extra help is surely a bonus.

    if you do want a serious answer, why ask in the lounge?
    spam.
    They can tak' oour lives, but they cannae tak' oour troousers!

    spam.
    This is exactly what Im reffering to in point partially with your remark of why I posted this here. Before you enetered this section of the forum you obviously overlooked the title. It clearly states: Lounge--->You may talk about anything here.

    I never stated that you shouldnt report something you see as offensive. But on the other hand maybe you think its offensive and someone else may not. As long as it is in accordance with the forum rules it really doesnt matter if it offends you or not. If we went about catering to filter out content or post that each particular individual may or may not find offensive then there would be no sense in participating in the forum or the topics.

    And I respect your opinion just as much as you respect mine.

    oh nooooo,
    dont get me wrong. i understand 100% where you are coming from, anything goes in the lounge, but generally ends up as spam.

    i just have noticed any "snitching" going on, so it seems to have sprung outta no where, but there is a lot of the board i dont visit, so i could be completly wrong.

    yes, i think the members should stick together, and if there is any disputes they should be sorted out on the board, but when it goes too far, i see no problem with calling a mod in to help. is this what you meant?

    no, i dont agree that we should edit potentially offensive remarks, but if that individual wants to talk about say, "enjoying sex with children" he /she is gonna get flamed and people have every right to be offended. silly things like swearing etc, are not a reason to pm a mod, as they will be found eventually, but i had no idea this was going on in here. so apologies to shn.
    They can tak' oour lives, but they cannae tak' oour troousers!

    I think lilmiss, more or less, was asking you to be a little more specific in your comments.

    What kind of "snitching" goes on? What are people "blowing the whistle on"?
    kiddie porn? offensive language? bad grammar?
    (serious------------------------------------>trivial)


    Metro thinks you're making a good point. For me, you are being too vague for me to even know what you're complaining about.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    It's been around for a while, just hard to notice. There's two kinds of reporters - Those who "snitch" as you say as a personal thing (e.g. to get back at someone, to shut down an opinion which they don't like, and [especially be noobs] to look good in case another moderator is chosen), and ones who don't do it for personal reasons but to keep the integrity of the board for all to enjoy. The former aren't truly needed if they only think for themselves, but IMO the latter aren't a problem and should in fact be encouraged, if only because the mods can't check every single thread.

    Are you talking about one of these two "groups", or are you blanketing them all?

    Its like Im back in grade school or something.
    Some people act like they are back in grade school That's why it sometimes has the atmosphere. Supply does not happen without demand; i.e. this stuff doesn't happen without someone spoiling it for the rest.

    You would think with all the post that get on this forum regarding other users telling on another one to the mod team that alone would be considered unecessary spam.
    True, but like in the first quote you can tell mod-wannabes and genuine watchers. Mod-wannabes will be all publically saying they're gonna "snitch". The latter will sometimes put in a mature response on the problem to try and calm down the problem, but will PM a mod either anyway.

    How can we stick together as peer 2 peer users and fight back against entities like the RIAA when we cant even stick together on a bullentin board.
    Some don't see it as a war; these pre-pubetics see it as a chance to screw around with the forum in whatever ways they can. Show VB a way which they can be culled quietly without taking any genuine posters out, and I show you the result of a forum without needing any form of moderation.

    Some things should be reported to mods provided they are according to the pertinent subject matter at hand. But to be quite honest, Im not seeing anything of the sort.
    Read the rules. Personal opinion doesn't matter - If it breaks these rules, action must be taken. Paul & VB didn't make the rules because it sounded cool to be in order; K-Lite is barely legal and we need as few problems brought in as possible.

    Talking about P2P software in itself is not that bad - You think that having 50% of the forum containing serials won't give anybody enough evidence to shut this place down? Those rules are there to protect every member of this forum, regardless of how much of a dick they are - If you don't like them, go

    I'm sorry if you're not talking about this; it just seems that you're partially blaming the rules.

    Im sure the moderators have a big forum to administer but It seems to me that unecessary actions like those of snitches would make that all the more difficult.
    The mods do a great job on their own, but they can't do everything instantly. AFAIK the mods rely on PMs from mature regulars as much as their own keen eyes; those same mature regulars try to help out the mods, whether they in themselves are mods or not, sort them out ASAP.

    If you wish to help out that way and don't have that mentality, don't bother starting.

    My point is this, moderators should make it very clear that going behind the back of your fellow peer and finding some flaw (whatever it may be) and reporting it in a maliscious way will have no bearing on achieving any type of mod status whatsoever.
    Maliscious indiscrminate reporting, yes. Reporting in total, no. Likewise - Anyone who reports and thinks it's gonna help them become a mod, stop right now. AFAIK mods already know who talks crap & who doesn't when it comes to PMing so leave them to decide who to listen to.

    This whistleblowing has got to stop.
    AFAIK, it'll stop when they stop giving people a chance
