Sound like a butthurt little pussy having a cry to mummy to make the neighbor boy stop calling him names when he's out riding his bike...
Whats next, discussing what colour lycra looks best with our ducati factory approved carbon fibre latte holder, whilst at the same time not making our arse look big?
Yes, a lot of them do get butthurt over a few names on the internet...then it escalates...
escalate to what.. calling you an fuckhead + 1 times infinity? this is still the internet right, or maybe I've missed something and we've managed to jack in?
Maybe I seriously missing something, but there was fuck all moderation years ago.. and the grand plan to get back to this past is to use moderation? And as whoever it was.. lefty? a cam? said, what point in time are you picking?
Being an Australian is not an excuse for being dumb and racist.
It's a tricky world we live in, I wouldn't want to be a moderator
Can't be worse than leading a "team" of real people.
There was always moderation dude and the use of it has ebbed and flowed with how the users were acting...
I admit there have been decent spans of time in the past where we as moderators just sat back and twiddled our thumbs because you guys, the users, were either self moderating or were taking happy pills or something and were actually getting along...
Sometimes these quiet periods actually followed periods of heavy moderation...
I'll have a look to see if I can come up with any periods this happened and maybe why...
You must not have had to sit on a sexual harassment or workplace bullying tribunal.Definitely worse, people are generally not so tough when they come out from behind their keyboards

Lets hope it doesnt stifle a good old heated debate.
Was it meant to soften the blow?
If you're going to go all out and moderate the forum, make it a sticky and put it at the top of each page, why single out one person? It devalues your intent. Nobody will take it seriously because we all know in a couple of weeks, you'll show leniency to the people here who made and make the forum what it is.
Treat everyone equally, not with token gestures.
