    I thought s*s got left behind at RWOL.

    It wasn't s*s that censored the post.

      Someone has a serious cob up their ass.

      I think the very nature of semi anonymous forums (we really do know who you are) lend themselves to some really juvenile shit.  I didn’t see what Quinn wrote, nor do I particularly care, but I think which ever of the Mods (and there are only 6 of them plus DM the owner) should give an explanation of why he/she was banned so that those of us remaining can avoid similar consequences.

        +1...I also wouldn't mind finding out why the "Guidelines" thread was suddenly locked...but I am curious to know what Quinn said.

          When I was a forum moderator I used that power with great restraint but I would have removed that pix immediately and sent a PM to the individual but I wouldn't have explained my action to the general readership. Why? Number 1, it obviously violates the posting rules / guidelines not to mention good judgement. Number 2, I found that when you publically dress down members or get into debates about every action you take the focus shifts from the topic to the messenger. Instead I would, if anything, have made a general statement about adhering to posting guidelines and nothing more. Mods are like umpires, the less you notice them the better. If someone was making a fool of themselves in your home wouldn't you pull them aside and ask them to straighten up or leave. A good moderator is like being a good host. As a forum member I would have sent a PM to one of the mods. And if I found the actions [or non-actions] of the moderation team to be counter to my principals I would question why I was continuing to participate in that forum.

                  Some B&B people were banned recently from L&O without being given an explanation (not talking about me). So it's not like we're being a dictatorship here, it's done elsewhere as well. I agree with what MothAudio said, the mods act as they see fit and they do not have to justify their actions, unless they want to, privately and to the censored poster. And I have 100% trust in LRB'actions. I also find his new sig very interesting.

                      Moth - point made and opinion changed..

                      Lily - Yeah, interesting - I guess there are all kinds of ways to say "look at me, look at me".

                        Very true. There are many ways to seek attention, but we only focus on the obvious ones.

                          Were you banned or kicked out. People have been randomly kicked out of the group by the software.

                            I was talking about people who have been banned, not randomly kicked out. In my case, maybe it was random, I don't know...

                              Most of what we post here is "look at me" type stuff, RRs, daily mileage, etc.  PRs in a sig are no different.  If we didn't care, we wouldn't post at all, we would just run and go about our lives.  But we want to share with like minded people, so we do, nothing wrong with that.

                                Why was Quinn censored?  Dude is a 2:50 marathoner and knows his shit.  He can run.

                                 

                                Oh, then he should be totally allowed to be a complete jackhole on this forum. Did he have that time in his sig?
