Sometimes its easier to see a clown if he's wearing a clowns outfit than a suitJust as an example - the banned "Panzermahn" at AHF springs to mind - over 2000 posts with pro-nazi tendencies, must have been 100's of warnings (must have been like several daily) and after the final round of posts he gets banned .... for posting pretty much the same nazi fanboy stuff as in the previous 2000 posts.
Obserwator was banned from AHF for making an endless series of anti-German posts, that sound uncannily similar to those that Torquez makes on here. I seriously believe Torquez and Obserwator are the same person.Molobo and Obserwator got banned on AHF, and they carried on for quite a bit before a mod getting tired of it and giving them the boot. However, I know of this second hand from MH, so I wouldn't know exactly what they did or said.
Hopefully like most sites if the loonies stay away, but guess what even the MCF is asking for more Mods and you have very few problemsWe have almost 4,000 members on our forum website, MCF, very few of whom are disruptive
http://www.militariacollecting.com/inde ... opic=20793We have a few Moderator openings, in some of our forums.
I would like to see all forums Moderated.
If anyone is interested in moderating a section that has no moderator, please PM me if interested.
No argument there! But when I've been on your site, Paddy, I've not seen a lot of things that needed "policing!" Maybe that's the difference, the way people behave?Paddy Keating wrote:...as I said, our moderators spend little or no time 'policing' members. There's a difference.
Ah...Tom! If you look closer, there's loads of things that 'need' policing! LOL! Maybe we're just too lazy to do it. But really, even when things get really nasty, most of the time we let them run their course. We use "The Pub" as the trashcan. We can have a zero tolerance policy on our mainstream forums because we offer a venthole in the shape of The Pub. It's like the no-limit system on the German autobahns. You can go as fast as you can on the freeways - or some of them anyway - but if you exceed the limit in town, near a school or something, by 2 kph, you are screwed!Tom wrote:No argument there!
