It is not my intention to make a thread for discussion or argument here. If possible I would rather use it for people to make any points they want to, about the current situation. Or to make suggestions about how to improve the situation.
If you could possibly not explain to previous posters why they are wrong, but merely post your own opinion / suggestions. That way people could say what they feel without risk of being flamed. Some of the less frequent posters may feel free to have their say as well, I would like to hear what everyone thinks. Not just those of us who are quite happy to take flack
Please also don't agree with previous posts. If you feel the same way then make a post of your own, in your own words. Again this will let everyone know how individuals feel, not just that they support a position written about by someone else.
I know that people can post however and whatever they want, however I feel this would be a useful exercise. It should be easier to read what everyone thinks rather than reading thro' a thread which is a collection of argument and counter argument, with 2 or 3 conversations ongoing.
I have 3 points I wish to make.
1. Remove anti-spam. It does nothing but cause hassle for the members. Someone here must be able to do it. How long have we all agreed it needs taken away.
2. Return to the mods moderating the board and admin administering it. It was always the case that admin said this would continue. They said they would not moderate the board, merely run it. They said that the mods were the people best placed to do it, I agree.
3. No more straight banning. Back to warning - moderation - longer moderation - occasional ban. Even for the worst offences the account can be suspended until a decision is made.
Thanks for reading.
