Default Is this forum going the way of other forums

I am just asking your opinion.

Is this forum going the way of other forums?

From my perspective, more and more post could be a try out for the Jerry Springer show. Members blasting mods. Mods blasting members.

Do we need mods to a moderator for the mods?

Is this what this should be about. Is this really about bbq information or another online enquirer.

I see this as a sad turn for a great forum.

Just my thoughts.

I'm with Rub - haven't been reading as much as I had in the past, but in what I have read I haven't seen it. I usually check out Q-Talk and New Posts which is how I came across your post. Perhaps it's happening in a particular sub forum??

I know I've been a little light on the forum the past few weeks but I have seen it either. What did I miss?

I also haven't seen that. I have seen it be just exactly the opposite, in fact. Members helping members, Mods helping members and not being 'power savage' about it... Merl, can you cite any actual examples of this?

Well merl since you asked. The only place where I have seen the forum go to sh it is where you and candy were bickering like ashholes on this thread---> http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=84400 other than that business as usual. You guys should be embarrassed, you got a lot of balls calling out this forum

I haven't seen this at all. In fact, this place is light years ahead of every other forum in terms of how well it is fairly moderated, and in how well members behave. Perhaps you are confusing another forums posts with this one?

I sure hope this forum isn't being called out for having frank discussions about KCBS board events as some sort of defensive move to try and discredit these forums as a valid source of information.

Which moderator(s) did you have in mind? Based on some of my recent comments, I'm guessing that I've made the list.

If you take issue with comments that I have made as a "member" I'd suggest that you address me as a member. That's how I will treat you. If you choose to call out a moderator or the moderators as a group, I'll be happy to address that issue as a moderator. The forum rules are clear when it comes to calling a moderator out in public.

That being said, I live my life according to Big Boy Rules. You are more than welcome to bring any and all issues to me in any form your choose. I've got no problem accepting responsibility for my actions.
