They are bad but neither can hold a candle to the freakin epistles TheDirtyWord writes. I've never made it past one of his intro paragraphs.

you got to give him props tho for writing what i think is unique content and not cut and paste

i do less with more all the time!  

Of course VT, I’m open to the very strong possibility that it could be due to some of our abnormally short attention spans in here too, LOL.

Those come and go. Overall, it’s kept to a minimum. Not because of mods, but more by members not condoning that nonsense. 

For every ‘bad’ thread in here, there’s 2 of these that can touch you in a meaningfully good way:

 

Bottom line is we all have freedom to contribute to a positive thread or subject or take issue with it and fight or just move on.

Mods don’t have to make every single thread comply. Something egregious is one thing but technicalities alone can be mindless. Not every situation is the same but posters can add to, subtract, or avoid threads.

As others said: Mods have a thankless job and if they didn’t do their job at all the boards would eventually be shut down.

hence the TLDR concept.  i like bullet points...the full length feature is just too much sometime...maybe TDWII can start making powerpoints!

Thanks, same to you sir!

We don’t always agree (who does??), but we all mean what we say and have valid points. Better than straight trolling.

i gotta work on that tl;dr aspect as @VTCrunkler stated :lol:

:tiphat:

DirtyWord is a very solid contributor.  Like me, he is stubborn which often creates an air of arrogance.  But he certainly offers a different POV which will be supported by logic and numbers.  I appreciate that

Wow! Mono has been here pretty much as long as me if I recall correctly, over 20 years.

You've done a fantastic job as moderator my brother, we are losing a good one here. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your service!!!

I hope you plan on still posting!

Well done. Stay around for our first title! :)

I meant to ask Mono how he was fairing after the devastating Tornado in Lebanon.  Did it impact you at all?

That’s what is needed here. Variety. Different vantage points.  I am learning that he may be a little stubborn/arrogant.  I see TDW as a treasure to the board.

It’s time for everyone to step down in my estimation. This board has become trash, my contributions duly noted. The death of this board is upon us. Message boards in general are dying off. Get a Twitter account folks. Time marches on.  

Twitter sukks, no thx.
