We have no more reason to expect Mods to follow our ideas of right an wrong than we do of Gods. I'm undecided about sneaking back in. Why voluntarily subject myself again to some strange form of psychotic tyranny? I can take a hint.
But I sure as heck am curious what sort of thinking ol' Gilly went through to ban me. I mean the threads that Kerry, Z, jjl, Narwhal and some others had concerning cannibalism and sexuality were much more edgy than my bit 'o' humor about punting small women. Heck, my wife would've punted me for that one, but she'd have laughed, too.
Dear Mr. Wood:
While I loathe people who run to the moderator or the owner with complaints, I feel compelled to do so with regard to the ongoing problems with the moderation of OD.
While I fully respect your right to have limitations on the content of OD, I believe that the current moderator has failed to convey your wishes in a proper manner.
The most recent banning of one of the most prolific writers on the forum is a case in point.
A single post, that was clearly said with tongue in cheek, resulted in the moderator giving Bonst one hour to remove the post. Bonst was not on the forum at the time.
Where is it posted that the moderator will give you one hour to remove an offensive post or otherwise be subject to ban? I haven't seen this posted anywhere. Have you instituted it?
This is another example of completely arbitrary behavior by the current moderator. There are quite a few members that are simply disgusted with attempting to post on Mercedes-Shop OD and I'd be surprised if it does not affect your business in a negative way.
If given the opportunity, I'd moderate this forum with a proper set of rules that everyone could follow. Then I'd enforce the rules to enable OD to be a place that everyone could enjoy.
