Hey guys,

I am one moderator deep here. Rusty has moved on to greener pastures. Our administrator has set forth certain rules to be followed. I try to let the language slip now and then, but there has been clear infractions lately that are really obvious. The rules are out there and easily read. Please follow them. I love you all and will never point fingers. Please stop trying to cheat the rules by working your wording to get past the forum censorship.

It’s a crappy job to have to enforce. I am never personally offended, but I respect Jacob and I respect his rules. Please do the same.

Thank you Ron for your dedication and hard work you put into this forum. I do not know exactly what a moderator does or their job to do it, but there is NO complaints here. If I knew more ( about what a moderator does exactly and how to do it) , I may be tempted to try it out if the load is too much for one person to help out.

Hello, first of all I like to follow the rules, I like respect to prevail anywhere and at all times.
I only express my concern, you have every right to mark what is wrong or what is not applicable. Certainly it can happen that due to language and customs some things are misinterpreted, for this reason, I want that if in any of my comments you see something that is not appropriate, just let me know, and then I will be able to realize that the form of translation does not is working. I am going to thank you.
I have many good friends here, we may or may not agree on some technical points, but mutual respect is universal and indisputable.
Hug for you friend!

Thank you Ron.

It's a thankless job, but it wouldn't take long for it to become clear to everyone what we do if we just stopped doing it.

"WE" need to remember that there is also young forum members here.
Would you want you son/daughter to see inappropriate language/discussions here.
Even the ones trying to skirt the rules (NO).No!

This forum is here to enlighten, educate, and help members who want/need information. I Love This Forum!
Even the DAMMIT!  should be changed to "darn-it" ( there's enough swearing out there).

Being an administrator is almost a full time job (besides your other full time job) and pay is poor.

So, I would like to thank "ALL" administrators of different forums for a job well done! Hand Shake

Ron and Jacob, I have a good feeling for what you all go through. Sometimes I feel like a forum moderator when helping serve the poor with social services for the Salvation Army.

I chaired an academic department at a university for many years (a whole story in itself). I used to say that no one came thru my door to tell me what a great job I was doing -- it did give me a different perspective on managing and directing a diverse group of individuals. I had a late Uncle who pontificated on occasion -- one of his comments I've always remembered was, "People have different opinions; that's why they make chocolate and vanilla ice cream".

Thank you to the moderators and posters here for making this the friendliest, most helpful and least contentious forum I've ever participated in. All of you should give yourselves a pat on the back.

I think Mother Teresa had a good perspective on the workplace and people. "We the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that now we are qualified to do anything with nothing."

Here are a few humorous caricatures of forum stereotypes developed by Mike Reed about 15 years ago, getting harder to find on the net so I saved his work several years ago before it is lost to total obscurity. I think you will enjoy, no offense meant, but if there is a problem let me know and I'll edit that out. Computer Issues Laughing

Hey guys,

Thanks for the attaboys, all I was wanting to convey was to just to follow the rules. It isn’t any fun to have to enforce or say anything against certain posts. To be honest I have probably said inappropriate things myself over the past 9 yrs or so. It happens. We are human.

I only say something when things are getting a little more frequent. This forum is the best, I love it and want it to stay just as it is.

Ron
