    How many times have I seen attack after attack of the "Rovians, neo-cons, brainwashed Republicans etc..." yet the threads remain open for pages upon pages but yet a thread where a liberal is called out over something OBVIOUS and whoosh, fellow liberals swoop to the rescue and save him from drowing in his own pablum.


    Patters, this is a disgrace. Mikey was clearly talking out of his behind and needs to account for himself. Anything less makes a mockery of this forum and if you continue to defend him and stifle free thought then you might as well have this forum shut down.


    Mgcolby wont quit and neither will I.

    Your above post would have quite a bit more credibility had you stood up to the handful of posters who equate liberals with terrorists.
    We want fairness, let's start in our own backyard.
    Take a stand when the next poster calls a liberal names, show as much sensitivity when the next wrong happens, no matter which side it comes from.
    That's what you expect from Patters too, isn't it?

    What I read in that post where Mikey's first words were as vile and hateful and off the mark as anything he said.."A pox on both your houses"...

    While not perfect...none of us are...I think Patters has done a good job being moderator.

    The job is tough and thankless. It opens him up to much criticism when he is just trying to do his job. I'm not happy when he appears to go out of his way to appease the left here. But, perhaps he is not appeasing them at all...it may just be my perception that he is.

    SO I PUBLICLY VOUCH FOR PATTERS AS AN EXCELLANT MODERATOR.

    I simply selfishly ask that threads created that have no discussion value be deleted. Perhaps a thread rule would be in order. All threads posting a link should be required to have at least a paragraph of discussion or be deleted.

    Unless patters and FTW can get a real grip on this situation then I will call for a vote of no confidence.


    Of course I realize that and $1.66 wont get me a cup of coffee at Dunkin Donuts but all the same....

    I think they would be small Azz-Horns trying to toot but cannot due to aphixiation...probably from a bad case of swollen hemroids.

    Or

    They could be small and lethal bubbles of air that are shrinking due to aphixiation.


    Take your pick...I'll choose the first but offer the 2nd option just in case.

    Thanks for the compliment, F.B.N. I think FTW and I make a good team. We've basically discovered the less we do, the more we agree, and both of us try to target only the most obvious and egregious violations.

    IMO...FTW and Patters are excellent Moderators. The same cannot be said of Zuma as a poster...

    I can read just fine, thank you.
    I had simply asked for clarification.
    If that is too much to ask, then fine.
    If not, then please do not again make statements like the one above, act like a gentleman, and explain.
    Thank you.

    I have no complaints with FTW or Patters as moderators. When an individual posts, that person knows whether they are crossing the line when they slam another member. We don't need any more rules, just some self critiquing before we hit Submit Reply.

    Those words were not directed at you..and I apologize about that..
    The point I was making was about mgcolby's call for mikey to be suspended. I think we all are not all that happy with Mikey's words there..the point I was making was that in that thread "I expect every reguler's input on this"..there was a lot of vile, personal and remarks full of hate and that if the call for Mikey to be suspended was going to happen, it should also happen to others in that thread who also spoke hatefully.
