    Default Patrick, forum needs respect.

    That's one of the problems this forum is having. If we don't show we deserve respect, we won't get it.

    I am not going to sit around allowing a few cowards create offensive posts/threads.

    One thing is to ignore stupid posts, but repetitive offensive posts is a different thing.

    People are getting tired of this.

    I'm the first to admit my temper has been short engaging some of these twits. And hell, if I gotta go then push the button. But take care of all of it for the good of CP. This board is one of the few pleasures I have. It's members are people of good character. Don't let these turds run the forum into the gutter. Please, it's time to step up to the plate.

    If CL35 had posted 1/4 of what some of these trolls have he would have been permanently banned a hell of a lot sooner.

    How some of these didnt get at least a temporary time out is unbelievable.

    This forum certainly has my respect. Yes, there seems to be a small group of people who think its funny to intentionally irritate others. Unfortunatly these people exist all over the internet and in life for that matter. I have chosen to ignore them and not let them get under my skin. Every time you respond to people like this, you just reinforce the behaviour.
    That said, this place on the whole has been an enjoyable and informative experience for me.

    It seems the moderation has loosened up dramatically lately. Not sure if it's lack of time or just a sign of the times w/Polk and Matt moving on. RuSsMan is non-existent lately and Doro pops in with a 1-2 liner occasionally. And beyond a couple comments from Patrick it seems to have become a free for all.

    I have been guilty of feeding the trolls......especially when bored at work. It's just too easy to put a one-liner or two out there occasionally against this latest rash of asshats.

    Perhaps we could raid their camp and extinguish all of them at once.

    Is it possible to empower some regular, even tempered members with moderation privileges? Just to assist in keeping things in check around here.

    Here's just one of the latest, choice examples Darla. Some of it's not as noticeable because it evolves around the discussion in other posts. It gets way off topic and not even considered banter. Just downright trolling in every sense of the word. There's some whacked out sociopaths in here on a mission.

    Thats what I mentioned in the "J" thread. There are several of us on here that have been around long enough to know if they could do it without taking advantage.

    Id volunteer to mod the car side. Club Polk is my homepage and Ive checked out the car side every day for the last 6 years - wouldnt be hard to keep track on spam and other crap.

    Cool Mac. There's quite a few senior members that are around regularly that could make this work I think. Question is, will the Powers That Be allow for it and would any of old timers want to do this? Moderating is not an easy task. Something at this point needs to be done though.

    I dont see why it shouldnt - every other forum I frequent has members as mods and none of those forums has as dedicated and loyal a membership base as Club Polk.

    Moderators wouldnt necessarily have admin privileges. Be able to delete and/or edit threads and maybe throwing a temporary ban on members. Anything above and beyond that would be only doable by the top brass.

    i think it could work great... some regulars to be mods.. but maybe the extent of their power would be to close a thread.. so it doesn't get out of hand... I think that's a good idea..

    give a few more regulars the power to only close a thread.. not ban or anything else.

    Thread was deleted. thanks Patrick, or whoever did it.

    This is the second offensive thread speakertweekar had deleted (at least from what I've seen). The first one was specifically directed to a forum member.

    So why hasn't speakertweekar been banned?

    Mark,

    I have nothing to complain about on forum moderation in general. I don't mind the spam threads that stay for hours or days. Furthermore, I don't mind the heated cable discussions with different opinions (I mention this because I know other member see these as trolling). In fact, I think that in most of the cable threads that got ugly, there's a "non newbee" to blame.

    What I can't stand is when I see a member get offensive, and get away with it. Be it a new member or an old member, I think those should be banned, especially if they get two threads deleted in just a few hours.

    When a referee doesn't control the players, the game gets out of hand.

    Instead of asking for more moderation, why don't the majority of you PRACTICE moderating yourselves.

    It is pretty much easy to spot when someone is a troll or trouble maker, and that when they see they can pull your strings & get you going that is what they do. AND YOU FALL FOR IT EVERYTIME!

    The "How long can speakers last?" is a perfect example. You guys are like dogs with bones you just can't let it go. The troller went under radar & you guys just kept poking the thread along till he came back to keep the foolishness going. The OP got all the answers that he needs. Now just let the damn thread die!

    You want respect? Practice what you preach! Act your ages instead of your shoe sizes. Unless something is truly harmful to the spirit of the board WALK AWAY & LET IT GO!

    We are all supposed to be adults here, lets start acting like it. If you find it's too boring for you, feel free to leave & don't let the door hit you on the way out. This forum will continue on along just fine without you.

    THANK YOU STEVE!!!
