Conservatives taking over this forum?
    #1691057 - 07/06/03 09:46 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I notice that pinksharkmark has been modded now. While I have great respect for pinky, I was asked by Rono when I left to replace him as mod. Now, maybe I'm just a sore loser, but it seems that the choice of pinky over me might upset the balance we once had when Rono was a mod. Oh well.

resistance is futile silversoul. this is our turf now! :tongue:

haha... seriously, i don't think the political views of our mods here really matter...

my only fear is that he'll stop ruthlessly cutting down illogical arguments as frequently as he has been in order to seem a little more evenhanded...

Ya, I'm sure he'll do a great job. It just seems appropriate that both the left and right be represented. But I'll quit bitching now.

Was it necessary to toot your own horn while asking that question?

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I guess not, except to let people know that I was told I would most likely be modded, and was turned down in favor of another conservative. Maybe I'll sue the Shroomery for discrimination.

Yes, Silversoul. Explain yourself at once! You were quite out of line!

hehehe. I wouldn't have edited that post, but if I was mod, I definitely would enforce the No Flaming rule more than it's been enforced since Rono left.

I'm sure I won't have to do much enforcing -- maybe a little reminding from time to time that people read the sticky thread at the top of the page. The recent flaming was probably just a real-life illustration of the "when the cat's away" syndrome. When there is no intervention by a moderator for an extended period of time it's not unusual that folks tend to monitor themselves a little less closely.

:lol:, yes you are a sore loser,  :smirk: what difference does it make who is MOD?  Do you honestly think it would really matter? and do you think people would change their style because of it?

I've got a feeling the lefties won't be able to handle having a rightie in a position of authority as well as the righties did while Rono was in charge.

I could be wrong. Hopefully I will be.

Pinky is an excellent choice as a mod...to tell the truth, I would have chose him first to replace me, but I was under the assumption that he didn't want the job.  Silversoul would have also been a great choice...and I'm sure you'll get your chance....having said that, I don't feel threatened by the fact that 2 "conservatives" are modding the forum...Mods are chosen with alot of consideration by the rest of the mod/admin community.  I'm just hoping that now Pinky is mod, he'll be too busy to respond to my posts. :wink:  (Kidding...Pinky is one of the few people here, that I actually enjoy debating with...Just wish I had more time to do it effectively)

P.S....Congrats Pinky.

Not sure if it makes too much difference whether they're left or right, it all depends on whether they're mature enough not to let the power go to their head. Once they get to thinking "Oh goody, I can edit the posts of that guy I don't like and leave all my pals posts alone" they're on the slippery slope down to what happened at the spirituality forum.
