    It goes beyond moderation folks, although that is a huge part of it, another huge part has to do with people who post garbage, over, and over and over again, and administrators refusing to do anything about it. I know Dreamy, she is a dear friend, and the crap she was taking over there is uncalled for on any level. It was clear who some of those are but no action was taken and the people that, yes, needed banned, yet they were neither banned, or, were allowed to post their personal attacks over and over again. As one who moderates there, I know first hand, a moderator can make specific complaints about specific posters and the administration apparently does nothing about it. I didn't moderate the NWT forums, this is the first I have heard they did away with them. I totally agree with Spider though, moderation, plus administrative action would have prevented the action they took. The sad thing is, they could have got people to moderate that board appropriately, if in fact, they were willing to get rid of the inappropriate posters as only the administrators can do.

    I would plead with moderators and administrators here, please don't let what was happening there, come here, keep the bs and the bs posters away from here if they can’t behave appropriately, if on the other hand, they can, and there were a number of good posters there, welcome the appropriate posters with open arms.

    That was Dreamy's daughter - Dreamy and I are good friends and she confirmed it in a e-mail - and I am not in the least surprised the board went down. It was working that direction and I had a feeling last night would be the nail. I don't feel in the least bit bad in jumping in and helping it along.

    Furches, I'm sure Dreamy is a great person IRL and she did take a lot of abuse but she was far from innocent and did provoke some of the attacks

    I noted someone thought they were the same person which was ridiculous. Their styles of writing were much different. She is editor of her high school paper which is something I could identify with.

    Note to Jensen and Schlottke:

    Be proactive here. Don't allow the inmates to run the asylum.

    I know you won't.

    Personal attacks are the last refuge of the incompetent mind, and the first action of the spiteful.

    No one is forcing my hand (actually fingers) when I sit at a keyboard.

    Claiming "she made me do it" doesn't wash. It's actually kind of sick.

    No but she attacked posters as well, and for some reason that was ok?

    I agree with your statement though.
