I had a credit card get compromised and I forgot to set a new card here until today, so we lost our subscription - it should be back to normal with uncensored swearing in a few days.

I fixed it - I didn't go with the full package this time as we didn't use many of the features - saves about $7 a month.

I'm thinking about shutting the forum down.  The demands for moderation are getting out of hand and I've lost interest in politics in general....I was willing to keep it open as a place for discussion, but people are constantly attacking and then crying about attacking.  I honestly don't care that much.

I say keep it going. You've done a fine job. Let the whiners slither back to MLW where they can be coddled, as long as they are far right enough.

I expect you're (also) one of the perpetual whiners cryin' to the mod - amirite? See... you're a part of the workload problem on the mod!

I report trolls, therefore I am responsible for the modís workload, but the troll...   heís just doing his job.

That's too bad. I've found our discussion here far more interesting and enlightening than MLW.

You really never should have invited Urban Recluse. Nobody gets banned from skyscraper unless they just don't know how to behave.

Please keep it open.  I volunteer to robot moderate for you - based on your direction only, ie. no discretion on my part.

JMT, while your intentions are honorable you are downright terrible at moderating. 

Well, well... we're back to this.

I guess all the moderators in the world are terrible... me... Charles... now JMT

Is anybody starting to get their daily dose of irony yet ?

I nominate Bubber for moderator. He is fair and impartial. His wife also licks my balls.

I'm not sure what caused you to go off the rails but you should take a time out for a bit.

Yes, go outside for a while.

I don't think there needs to be much done here in terms of moderation, but stuff like that should get an immediate ban.

I say nominate another mod to help with workload, OR try making it a "no rules" forum (besides major spamming by bots etc) and every man for themselves, OR shut this place down.

There's certain people here running the zoo, this place has become out of control.  If anyone breaks a rule, message them and give them a warning, if they do it again, suspend them, if they continue afterwards, suspension or ban.  I would think that would lesson the workload, but something definitely should be done because this place has turned into an insane asylum where many decent posters have left due to all the bickering/insults while the perpetrators remain.
