Original message Mod appreciation thread


As I was composing a post for a thread that was critical of moderation on DU, it was locked - locked so swiftly that I didn't have time to get my reply on the record. That in itself is testimony to the effectiveness and efficiency of DU's moderation team. As I'm partial to seeing my handiwork reproduced on DU, however, I've preserved the text of my missive and now address it to all those who feel inclined to critique how this board is moderated in open forum:



For my part, I don't need an explanation every time a thread disappears, nor would I expect the mods to provide one; they DO have lives outside this board, after all. Besides, there may be reasons for these actions of which we are unaware or that are none of our fucking business. For instance, I saw a thread started yesterday that celebrated the tombstoning of a newb after a single post. Someone suggested that the IP address was recognized as that of someone who had already been TSed, making the newb a sockpuppet. Being a troll is bad enough, but when the troll returns as a sockie, that's beyond the pale. I don't know if this was the case, but it seems plausible, it's a good enough explanation for me, and besides, it's none of my fucking business. If this is truly troubling, I recommend e-mailing your concerns; your current path leads to ruin.


Although I hope the phrase is unnecessary in this instance, I'd like to say...

IBTL!


I saw this one at lunch...but then...

You wouldn't force us in to using our god-like mod powers and edit or delete you messages would you?

I for one appreciate the Mods work. I damn sure would not want to be one. The board would probably explode:eek::rolleyes::)
