    I'll speak up and say one thing as a former mod/ admin.
    When I was on staff I did everything I could to communicate openly and honestly, to be fair and impartial and to explain my actions either by U2U, on the general forum, by text message or with a phone call. How many of you did I have conversations with for the purpose of explaining myself and why I was trying to do the things I was doing. Practically every single one posting in this thread had exactly that interaction with me but in the end it got me nowhere. I decided to step away from moderating as part of my larger goal of spending less time on the Internet. There is no way on Gods green earth that I'd ever consider rejoining staff now. Furthermore I am thoroughly amazed that anyone on the current staff is still present in staff. Carbon Media Group is a for profit business and should be able to used CMG employees like Austin to handle the site. I've got news for y'all though since that appears to be your wish... If that happens you better expect more bannings because trust me when I say that an impersonal staff of mods that don't know you will tolerate far less of your bull than the current staff has and you can bet that once you're banned it will become very difficult to come back with a new name.

    Was sad to see ya go, but thanks for your time I thought you were clearly one of the "fairer" mods.

    You say they will tolerate "far less of the bull" Can you expand on exactly what that is? I think lots of assumptions are being made due to lack on info. The forum has been pretty drama free compared t the old days when some thought they needed to make weekly examples of someone by shutting them up.

    Or, ignore this post and get ready to take your dog out. :)

    Ed, I'm not going to dive into that topic because it's a pit with no bottom. The guys reading this thread have all been around long enough that they know what the issues are and they know which buttons to push to jab at the staff and at one another. And they push those buttons again and again. It's mean spirited, it's divisive and we all know it.

    That's right Kenny. How many phone conversations did you and I have? How many text messages? I did that because we share a bond in our passion for the outdoors and because I liked you. If that were not the case I'd have pushed to get the rest of staff to agree to lock your account long before the finally did lock it. Even after those conversations you continued to push the limits and viola vikestand is banned. Banning someone is never the first choice, it's always the last resort after repeated pleas to change posting habits. Do you think an anonymous staff with names like "cmgadmin1" from somewhere in Ohio and responsible for moderating MWT along with the knitting forum is going to try very hard to work with you or will let you come back as tom Sauk and tolerate your further disruption of the forum???

    I can't believe you guys are crying like a bunch of women's about bandings....... It's a private website for God's sake.

    Or some might say, I have figured out how to get along.

    You dont own stock in this place, you have no skin in the game here( just like me). You are just some random guy who decided to sign up and post. That does not give you a say in how they decide to run it. This is not some socialist collective where all members have an equal say.

    If you dont like the way its ran, you are free to leave just like I am. :wave:

    Pretty simple really. :eek::

    Most forum sites ban IP addresses, so if you are gone once, you gone for good.
