  • Review of Moderators

    I have read a few comments from time to time when some reference is made to the job that each of our moderators is doing. I thought about this again recently so at this time I invite anyone to express their view as to how they think things are going for this forum since we attracted moderators.

    My view was and remains firmly neutral although I was at first concerned that moderators could negatively affect open expression. That, as far as I can tell, hasn't happened and I think these two guys, Old Grey Eagle and hops_scout, have done a superlative job. They don't get paid and I suspect they put up with a lot of, well, nonsense, some of it possibly from yours truly.
    And I appreciate the service they are doing and want them to know it.

    I agree, though I'm not sure I'm neutral on much of anything A thank you from me to the moderators for doing what can be a thankless job.(This message has been edited by Laurie)

      Knowing that in the very near future I could be half way Down a rappelling tower and Hops might be at the top!!
      But putting that aside.
      Kudos to both for managing the Mr. Smith Thread and keeping it to only one thread.
      I was sad to see the thread on Commissioners closed - But if the line was crossed it was crossed.
      I do at times have to remind myself of the 5th English Scout Law. A Scout is a brother to all Scouts.
      That doesn't mean that we will always see things in the same light, it doesn't mean that I am always right or that the other person is always wrong.
      If something sounds like twaddle, looks like twaddle and passes the twaddle test. I deem it to be twaddle and ignore it. I do like reading and seeing things that make me think about where I am and if the other guy could be right. Giving the little gray cells a work out is good.
      Having Hops and OGE has helped us not fall into the situation we had a little time back with Jason and his many clones or was it clowns?
      Both these Scouts are doing a good job and I think the Forum has improved because they are here and because of what they do.

          I don't want our moderators to change anything they're doing either.

          Eamonn: When I learned the Scout Oath here, the Seventh Edition of the Boy Scout Handbook defined "Friendly" as: He is a friend to all and a brother to every other Scout.

          That was early 1968.(This message has been edited by John-in-KC)
