The following rule and notes have been added:

STAFF MEMBERS ARE TO BE RESPECTED AT ALL TIMES! Criticism and "bashing" or rebelling against staff members is not permitted anywhere on the forum. If you have an issue with a staff member or their decisions, please discuss via private message or email, NEVER in public on the forums, or contact the Administrator.

Other Notes:


  • If you ever desire to have your account terminated, we will not do so, but we will move you to a usergroup: "Retired Members". While in this group, you may login but you may not post, PM (Private Message), or use many other functions that a regular user can. Once you ask for this, your account cannot and will not be restored.
  • If you ever desire to have all of your posts/threads deleted, we will not do so. Once you post material on the site, it becomes our property. (See section 5(C) of the Terms of Use)

i presume that when a staff member (moderator) is taking part in a discussion on a thread, as a participant, then he/she is subject to the same criticism as any other member.

Yes, moderators are still members, and in the course of a discussion you may disagree, or even argue with them about a point, as long as everyone remains civilized. I certainly want and expect members and moderators to interact and engage in all types of discussions.

The rule added above specifically relates to their functions as acting moderators.

What if you do this, and then never get a response of any kind?
