    I would like to ask 7th to change the rules regarding the starting of polls. I am requesting that no poll should be started without the consent of at least two Mods. That those two mods names be posted at the start of the poll. That no poll can be carried out to vote on or against a particular member for whatever reason without that member opening the poll giving their permission.

    Perhaps their legal representative should also be consulted. Or would that just be going over the top ?

    Well i'd hate for people to vote against my member

    Seriously though; its to avoid this type of thing happening, amongst other things, that only Mods open polls at the moment.

    If you look around, there are a large number of members that wish to see the rules relaxed, not strengthened as you suggest.

    I have no problem, in principle, against your proposal. I do feel however that the rules currently have the right balance if applied correctly.

    If a mod wants to start a poll, does he/she need consent? If so, does their mod status count towards one of the two required mod votes? Or do they need two other mods to vote?
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Are we forgetting this is an internet forum ? It really isn't that serious.

    If you people are at the cutting edge of your generations anarchistic tendencies then the future can look forward to many years of delightful banality.

    Loosen your belt, have a couple of drinks and relax ffs. It's just a bit of fun.

    That is a good point, if a member additionaly want the poll to be taken down, cause
    it is against the member it should be taken down.
