I only comment in here when I think I can add some value. Doesnt mean I dont have opinions...I now just ask myself..."is what I have to say of any merit?"

I did a negative post/thread a few years back and got hammered by some blokes who thankfully remained friends.

I learned a lot from view is a survey of one and worth no more or less than anyone else.

I still find this site a great source of info and encouragement.

The troubles on here were not one sided.

Outback Jack got a 3 day holiday for a benign posting targeting no individual. The comment below Jacks post was an attack on him but no action was taken
Double standards are being applied and it is not the first time either.

The koalas on here need to be taken of the protected species list and be subject to the same rules as the rest of us. Until that happens i dont see much changing on here for the better.

i agree bob in what you said, unless the protected species tag is lifted ,i don't see much change here either

I like to know who the protected species are.
I've seen many long term contributors to this forum Banned for a few days and permanently.
I really don't think it matters who you are or how much you've contributed.
If you break the rules you get punished.
It only seems to be the punished having a whine. awful flowers

No pain No gain..

It seems to me that most posts that cause angst are not gold related.

I personally prefer to perve on gold pictures and read advice on methods of how to find it. I particularly like posts like funny pics/jokes etc.

I have also met with many on the forum and found most to be very friendly and helpfull.

The forum is a bit like telly, if you don't like it change the channel or turn it off.

I fail to see why, if you have a problem with something or someone, you don't simply use the pm button, rather than start a public slanging match which usually ends up with the mods having to take action.

Maybe we should all act like grown ups, play nice and enjoy our hobby by continuing to contribute where we have something positive to share and take into consideration that we all don't have the same opinions and or tastes.


Ps loved Madtuna's sense of fun, but thats just me

SDC 2300 and a lot of patience

I will answer a few things here for your sake Jack.

1. We put a stop to a lot of the negativity that was going on in here. Forum
was turning into a fighting Alley all the time and we got sick of having to
answer to a lot of it. Decent folk's were being upset by it all.

FaceBook is for that.

2. No Mod has to and won't admit singularly that they were the one's who acted.
That stop's us from being targeted or singled out. decisions are a group decision.
If a Mod steps out of line or gets it wrong, Action is reversed and an apology issued.

3. Harri can see every thing we do. All deleted post's and bans have a record.
IE; Often referred to as a database. Also joins in our back ground forum.

4. As in your case, You kept on going on about crypto currency being a scam or what ever.
And on and on. It is a wonder that you were allowed to continue. The previous owner if you
wish would not have had a bar of it. Nor for a lot of things going on.

5. Just go with the flow and accept that other people have their own opinions, No one will
change that.

Thank You.

I recently go a 3 day ban for a so called negative post , that post was a warning about cryptos dope investors that proves to be true .

What mod banned me ? you hid behind the other mods didn't you !

And what is the point of being a site sponsor if you cant have a opinion ?

screenshots taken .

Harri will see this post ' so don't try zapping it tongue


Im kind of on Jacks side . This is down to pure intereptation of what is "negative '. Its the same slippery slope with "offensive". Surely Jack can hold an opinion whereby if he isnt singling out members or engaging in direct harassment then at worst the post removed?

Im failing to understand what words or actions warranted the ban.

Jacks views on the subject were well known, so Im not sure what in particular was 3 day ban worthy in this instance?

I can see the path that lead to the outcome, perhaps Im missing where he was asked to stop, but reading between the lines in his statement Im pretty sure it didnt happen.

Not too sure where this direction will lead the forum but it wont be in the interests of the long term members. zzz

I was banned once accidentally by a glitch in the system that no one was responsible for... the hardest part was getting in contact through the real world to let someone know it had happened. I didn't get upset by it at all, just realized that if there was no actual reason then there was no actual problem.... sound familiar... looks the same to me, just with a different response is all. Can depend on how we feel at the time about a multitude of things as to how our responses formulate to similar problems. Nothing at all needs to be problematic, it is only our stances that make it so. Do we want to exacerbate problems within the community that we inhabit, or do we want to be part of a solution to those problems, in a way that enhances our overall experience.

If a burden be so great, rest and recover strength.

What a great day ! ,... " I'll see you in the field ".

I agree with RR
That's hardly a threat

If you can't convince them, confuse them

It seems to me that the obvious reason for the frustrations shown and then members pulling the pin on a great forum is ‘over zealous moderation’ by well intentioned moderators who I think have been in the role for too long. This forum is becoming over moderated in the extreme in my the point of nannying. I think the mods should take a quiet holiday for a couple of weeks and see if this forum self destructs without them....hardly, in fact, the lack of their unnecessary intrusions would be a welcome thing IMHO. I am confident that most regular posters on here can moderate their own discussions as reasonable adults without the threat of the thought police often stepping in.
Anyway, just my impressions.... you may agree to disagree. smile

And there you go, last 5 posts could be seen as negative or bullying.
The post I had deleted were way tamer that those.
I'm not saying I find the last 5 posts too much and should be deleted or the last 5 posts are in any way wrong or the posters should be punished.
But mods, you need to be fair and consistent.
The mods here are like Barry Gommisol or Greg Hartley!

See you.
